In the early 50’s Torremolinos became a place wealthy Americans passed through on their European tours. It was not an easy place to get to before Malaga airport opened its doors to international passengers in 1948. During this period the stars of the day would often visit Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly to name a few. In the 60’s the next generation of Hollywood stars arrived Dirk Bogarde, Frank Sinatra, Raquel Welsh. This was Torremolinos’s golden age. Then came the Package holidays and the Torremolinos skyline changed. Hotel’s, bar’s and disco’s appeared everywhere. Torremolinos was one of the first towns in the Costa Del Sol to embrace the tourist trade and in some way’s led to its downfall. By the 70’s tourism started to effect other towns in the area. Package holidays started to get a bad name in the late 70’s and with the fuel crisis, new destinations opening up the Torremolinos golden age came to an end.
Today Torremolinos has spent millions of euro’s on the town and tried to shed its past image of a cheap package holiday destination and clean up its act. Although it is a bit of a concrete jungle the beaches and promenade are prestige. The Malaga Fuengirola railway track runs right through the heart of the town making it easy to move about to other towns on the track. Torremolinos now has a lot to offer as a holiday resort.
