Ciudad de Torremolinos
Located on the outskirts of sunny Torremolinos the ‘Ciudad de Torremolinos’ is a very popular training venue for many different sports. For over 15 years we have been coordinating swimming groups to this destination, receiving great feedback and many groups returning year after year.
There are many possibilities offered by these sports facilities, which, together with the good climate of the Costa del Sol, make them visited by high-level teams and numerous professionals from different sports throughout the year.
The outdoor pool which was built in May 2011 at the Piscina Olímpica Virgen del Carmen and The Stadium Ciudad de Torremolinos form the larger part of the sporting complex that hosts 3 swimming pools:
- Pool 1 Outdoor, 50 metres x 8 lanes, 21.5 metres (2 metres deep) (5 minutes’ walk from track facilities)
- Pool 2 Outdoor, fully equipped diving pool 25 metres x 12.5 metres
- Pool 3 Indoor, 50 metres x 8 lanes, 21.5 metres (2 metres deep) (Directly adjacent to the athletics’ track
All the pools are heated to 27-29ºC and include anti wave lane ropes, backstroke flags, pace clocks and starting blocks.
As both pools are municipally owned there are galas throughout the year – details are available upon request.
Adjacent to the indoor pool there is an athletics track with plenty of space for land training pre & post pool sessions. Not forgetting a large gym, with areas of bodybuilding, cardiovascular, toning and stretching, steam rooms and bubble pool.
