Torremolinos is a municipality on the Costa del Sol of the Mediterranean, immediately to the west of the city of Málaga, in the province of Málaga in the autonomous community of Andalusia in southern Spain. It belongs to the comarca of Costa del Sol Occidental. Once a poor fishing village before the growth in tourism began in the late 1950s, Torremolinos was the first of the Costa del Sol resorts to be developed.It is located on the western shore of the Bay of Málaga and in front of the Sierra de Mijas. It lies at a distance of 13 km from Málaga and is served by the A-7 motorway, which bypasses the city to the north, the Renfe commuter train and Avanzabus.In 2013 it had 69,389 inhabitants, making it the sixth largest city in the province. The township has an area of 20 km² and a population density of 3153.85 inhabitants/km², which is multiplied during the summer months.It is particularly popular with British, Irish and Scandinavian tourists and has a large British expatriate population.Areas of the town are spotted with older high-rise residential buildings and hotels but height limits on new developments and a significant number of original old town properties, have kept the town centre much more open than other popular resorts such as Benidorm and Fuengirola.Torremolinos is in Costa del Sol.
