This mild subtropical climate, one of its principle values, makes it possible for such fruits as avocados, custard apples, bananas and sugar cane, to be grown in the Torremolinos vicinity.
Thus, Torremolinos can offer its visitors, almost twelve months of the year, the opportunity to dive into the crystal clear and warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea, while they enjoy its excellent beach front facilities, along the recently inaugurated Paseo Maritimo. The Englishman’s Castle formerly known as the Point of Torremolinos forms a geographical element separating the easterly and westerly beaches . Its main beaches are Los Alamos, Playamar, Bajondillo, La Carihuela, Montemar and El Saltillo.
The beaches of Torremolinos have the best facilities available and as an important attraction, year alter year they strive to present more and better services that guarantee the cleanliness of its fine sand and calm waters, better security and medical assistance and more comfort, making them ideal for fun and relaxation.
All the continuous effort involved in the maintenance of these marvellous beaches is acknowledged by the European Community, year after year, in the symbol of the Blue Flag distinction.
