Torre del Mar

The town of Torre del Mar is one of the most popular seaside resorts on the Costa del Sol, located in eastern part of the coast, in the region known as the Axarquia in the Andalusian province of Malaga.

The town is situated just 28 kilometres from Malaga and forms a part of the scenic Route of Sun and Avocado, which follows the route of villages and towns in the Axarquia region.

History
There are unsupported claims that Torre de Mar was once a part of an ancient Greek settlement called Manake, which was destroyed by the Carthaginians. However, recorded history dates back to the Phoenicians.

About town
The town is a magnet for tourists, mainly Spanish, who come to enjoy the perfect all-year-round warm climate, kilometres of clean sandy beaches and upbeat atmosphere.

There is a wonderful promenade that extends all the way to the marina at Caleta de Velez.

The town has a great atmosphere and is equipped with good amenities for holidaymakers, including
supermarkets, restaurants, bars, discos, and much more. The 500 metre beachside stretch of El Copo is a parade of bars and discos, which in the summer open until 6am. There is also a summer night market open until 3am on another stretch of beachfront.

Beaches
The town boasts wide sandy beaches, with a lovely long promenade, which takes you along the coast to the neighbouring fishing town of La Caleta de Velez.

Eating out
Torre de Mar offers an excellent selection of restaurants, from traditional Spanish, wonderful seafood restaurants and a host of international cuisines.

Climate
Torre del Mar enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and mild winters. Cooling breezes from the sea make the summer heat manageable, temperatures average 32 ºC during the summer.

Torre del Mar review

Have stayed in Torre del Mar many times previously but mainly for short breaks. Staying for a month did not disappoint Perhaps more so than many other Costa del Sol resorts it is best to have better than basic Spanish.


Costa del Sol reviews

shingle beach so not sand castle friendly perhaps but a beautifully wide flat promenade ideal for walking cycling etc
