Radio Taxi Torremolinos
This is the official taxi service in Torremolinos. They speak English in the office and some of the drivers also speak English.
You can book taxis by calling 0034 952 380 600 or 0034 952 382 744.
You can also book taxis using their website and this allows you to book an English speaking driver.
All taxis now have taximeters.
Official taxis can be identified by the following emblem on the front door together with a taxi number above it.

You can also pick up a taxi at the various taxi ranks. I haven't located a complete map of the positions but here are a few and I will add more as I spot them.
There is a taxi rank outside the railway station in Benalmádena and ones outside both the railway and bus stations in Fuengirola.

Walking
This bit is not about hiking in the mountains or even about a walk along the beach. Not that I've anything against that. Walking is healthy and a stroll along the promenade can be very enjoyable.
This is about walking around the town. Most of your life you will have been looking right, left and right again when crossing the road and it is now probably so automatic that you don't even realise you are doing it. In Spain the traffic drives on the right so you need to look left, right and left again. This is not automatic to you so you need to think about it whenever you need to cross a road.
There are loads of pedestrian crossings in Torremolinos; everything from ones controlled by lights with count down timers and a litte green man who runs faster as the time runs out to ones that are little more than a few markings on the road.
When using crossings you should be aware that traffic coming round the corner often only has a flashing amber light. This means that they can proceed with caution. So, if a car goes in front of you while you are using a crossing, don't shake your fist at them or give them a V-sign; they are probably doing nothing wrong.
