Your in quite a residential area around 10 minute walk from the railways station and a good 20 minutes from the beach assuming you take the lift. There is a full range of food in the central area.

Unfortunatley only really the marconfort griego hotel in your area, so I doubt a lot of folk about late at night.

All the beaches are good, but the carihuela area does have a huge range of beach bars and restaurants and if you walk to the griego hotel on the main road to the left you can catch the 110, 112, 120, 121, 123 or 124 which would get you to the carihuela and benalmadena marina.

The lift is a means of accessing the Paseo beachfront area from the town .

There are two lifts that take you down to beach level, saving a good 15 minutes on the steep uphill return. Both lifts are within a 5 minute walk of the railways station, which is less then 10 minutes from your apartments, both charge 50 cents each way.

Your best option may be the bus, the 123 goes in both directions, towards los alamos beach one way and has its terminus at the windmill roundabout just after benalmadena marina the other way, every stop towards benalamdena after you drop down the hill as you leave central torremolinos will be a 5 minute walk to a beach, the windmill terminus stop is alongside the beach.

However, every bus in my list in #1 going towards benalmadena will stop at the same stops, the 123 is the only one going to a beach on the airport side of torremolinos.
