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.

City review

Amazing! An abundance of restaurants and cafes. But most importantly the ice creams are simply the best in the world!! Lots of souvenir shops. In terms of supermarkets theres Super Sol and Mercadona which are amazing. Watermelons taste lovely!! They even have a retail park, with high street shops like Zara, H&M and Burger King at the El Ingenio (shopping mall).

Coast review

Lovely place to go scuba diving. Contact simplydive for more info. They are a British company and speak english fluently: they'll even pick you up and drop you off free of charge in their shuttle bus. Lovely beaches and markets for shopping for loved ones back home. We had an amazing time!

City review

Nice city, small town. Little shops, no big flats, not very touristic like the other side of Málaga

Coast review

Very well equiped for little children. Nice places around to visit (Mijas, Frigiliana, Málaga) as well as the mountains and larger cities that are situated there. There is culture, nice weather, good relaxation.
