Torrox Costa

Torrox Costa is a popular seaside resort, which is linked to Torrox Pueblo, which is 4 kilometres inland from the coastal area.

The area is very popular with tourists during the summer, but still hasn’t got as built up as some of its counterparts of the Costa del Sol.

Around town
Much of this resort is made up of modern apartment blocks, which are mainly owned by Spanish and German nationals, who have second residence here. It’s definitely not a package
holiday resort and the life is a lot more refined and laid-back than some of the other busier resorts.

Much of the Torrox’s amenities: bars, restaurants and shops, can be found on the main Paseo Maritimo (promenade). During the summer market stalls set up selling various arts, crafts and souvenirs and there are supermarkets and banks in town for your convenience.

If you like to keep up with your exercise routine whilst on holiday then Torrox Costa offers you lots of fitness options, including installations for football, basketball, volleyball, aerobic, tennis, swimming and much more.

Beaches
Torrox Costa boasts the beautiful blue flag beach of El Peñoncillo.where there is a nautical school
where windsurfing and canoeing can be practiced.

Places to visit
The whole of the beautiful Axarquia region is a great place to explore if you enjoy rambling and getting out into the great outdoors and away from the droves of the coastal towns. Plus the Sierra Nevada and the historical city of Granada are just one hour’s drive away.

All year long, cultural and leisure activities take place in Torrox Costa, including theatre, exhibitions, music concerts, flamenco and traditional dance.

Eating out and Nightlife
Torrox Costa offers a wide selection of good eateries and bars, the main leisure area being along the Paseo Maritimo and the side streets leading to the beach.

During the summer, some bars along the coast offer music shows and flamenco performances. And for the young at heart, there are a selection of pubs and discos.

On the blue flag beach of "El Peñoncillo" there is a nautical school where windsurfing and canoeing can be practised. Besides there are almost infinite possibilities for trekking or mountain cycling.

Cuisine

The cuisine in Torrox is typical of the Axarquia region; specialties include Ajoblanco con Uvas (Garlic Soup with Grapes), Chota a la Cazadora (Kid in Almond Sauce), Cordero Asado al Horno (Roast Marinated Lamb) and sweet Churros, fried dough sticks, a bit like donuts, dipped in hot chocolate, delicious!

Climate

It is said that the whole Torrox region enjoys one of the best climates in Europe, as it is sheltered by
the Sierra Tejada and Sierra Almijara Mountains.

Torrox Costa review

Nice relaxed place


Costa del Sol reviews

The sea can be difficult to get in and out due to a stony drop off where the waves break. This makes it difficult to get in and out if you are unsteady on your feet

Torrox Costa review

Torrox Costa kenne ich seit über 25 Jahre. Es ist schon lustig und interessant, wie es sich verändert hat. Mir gefällt es immer wieder gut dort. Alle Menschen, die einmal nach Torrox kommen, wollen immer wieder dorthin. Vor allem für ältere Menschen ist es schön dort, da vieles in deutscher Hand ist.


Costa del Sol reviews

Die Küste ist schön. Das Wasser nicht immer, da es manchmal etwas unsauber ist. Hühnerfedern und anderer Unrat - das Meer wird jedoch sauber gemacht von einem Bootaufräumdienst, der in Ufernähe mit einem Netz durchs Wasser geht.
