Rincon de la Victoria

Local residents have described Rincon de la Victoria as a ‘dormitory town’, as situated just 12 kilometres east of Malaga, in the southwest area of the Axarquia, it provides a convenient base for those who work in Malaga city, but prefer a relatively peaceful fishing community life, as opposed to a permanent dwelling in the busier city. In fact many Spanish families have second homes here and come from inland towns and cities including Madrid, Cordoba and Seville to spend the summer holidays by the coast.

The municipality of Rincon also incorporates the neighbouring fishing village of La Cala del Moral and the charming inland village of Benagalbon and is part of the scenic routes of the raisin and the sun and avocado.

The town has seen a fair amount of development and building growth in the last few years, with urbanisations and apartment complexes springing up everywhere. The popularity of the town during the summer months means that during summer the population of approximately 26,000 literally triples overnight.

For the remainder of the year, Rincon de la Victoria, is a fairly laid-back town, with a good choice of bars, restaurants and facilities for the holidaymaker.

History
The history books date the area back to prehistoric times; late Palaeolithic sites have been discovered from which a collection of tools and Stone-Age art were discovered. The remains of a Roman fortress and settlement have also been found.

Around town
Rincon de la Victoria has an exceptionally lively seafront promenade, locals taking their daily stroll, cyclists and joggers, all jostling along the seafront walkway. There are popular walks along the seafront along to La Cala and to the shrine of the Virgen del Carmen, the town’s patron saint, which is embedded in a rock at the western point of the beach. The route to La Cala takes you through tunnels, cut out of the cliff face, up steps and along a very scenic route.

Overlooking the town at the westernmost point is a Moorish watchtower, which affords sweeping views to the sandy beach and coastline.

Places to visit
For culture lovers, Rincon de la Victoria has its fair share of cultural monuments and attractions, including the Casa Fuerte (Fort), which has been developed into an art gallery and concert hall. The building dates back to 1733, to the reign of Carlos III, and was used as a defensive post against attacks from English pirates.

The famous Cuerva del Tesoro (Treasure Cave) is worth a visit, it’s located just outside of Rincon de la Victor, in the urban area of El Cantal and contains a series of caverns with stalagmites, stalactites, underground water pools and Palaeolithic wall paintings.

Festival
In early September Rincon de la Victoria plays host to the annual Festival de la Boqueron (Anchovy Festival), during which thousands of kilos of anchovies are cooked and enjoyed by locals and visitors.

Cuisine
Rincon de la Victoria serves up a mainly traditional Mediterranean cuisine, its seafront location means that seafood and shellfish are high on the menu and you can enjoy the locally caught ‘Catch of the Day’ for lunch, along with delicious Paella and the popular Fritura Malagueña (mixed fried fish platter).

Climate
Rincon de la Victoria enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and warm winters. Cooling breezes from the sea make the summer heat manageable, temperatures are an average of 32 ºC in summer.

Rincón de la Victoria review

Maybe oriented for Spanish tourism (at least starting with Sept), but a very laid back, not crowded and less expensive base to visit the surroundings.


Costa del Sol reviews

Large beach, few people, what would you need more?

Rincón de la Victoria review

Rincon is a Spanish working town so very authentic with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. A number of supermarkets to choose from. Lovely promenade and beach area with plenty going on. If you are looking for a British resort with all the familiar home comforts then this place is not for you. If, however, like us, you want to immerse yourself in the Spanish way of life and mingle with the locals then this is perfect. It is also a great base for exploring the eastern of Malaga as it is fairly central. Only 30 minutes in the car to Nerja with good road network.


Costa del Sol reviews

Coasta del sol is perfect - especially east of Malaga away from the tourist trap.
