Located on the southern coast of Spain, Torremolinos is a popular destination for holidaymakers in search of affordable accommodation, buzzing nightlife and Spanish sun. Culture Trip has rounded up the five best Airbnbs in Torremolinos for an original experience in the heart of Costa del Sol.
Once a poor fishing village, Torremolinos emerged as a popular holiday resort after the tourism boom of the late 1950s. Long known for its high-rise hotels and package holidays, Torremolinos has reclaimed a more authentic Spanish character in recent years. Escape the crowds at the breakfast buffet by booking one of these original Airbnbs, offering both excellent value for money and features you’ll struggle to find in a chain hotel.
