Dream beaches, a unique natural environment and a charming old town with the best services. All this with the "Best Climate in Europe". This, and much more, is Torrox.
This Malaga municipality located in the eastern part of the Costa del Sol, has positioned itself in the last five years in one of the most attractive and tourist potential spots on the Andalusian coast. Only 30 minutes from the center of Malaga and 60 km from the airport.
Its location sheltered by the Sierra Almijara, whose highest peaks approach 2,000 meters of altitude, means that it does not affect the dreaded land in summer, nor the most intense colds during winters, providing the best weather on the entire continent. Not surprisingly, there are many foreigners who have chosen Torrox for years to live throughout the twelve months, in addition to being a point of vacation destination that is beyond seasonality.
Its interior, of a typical Andalusian town, has whitewashed houses with flower pots adorning its balconies. A perfect balance between the traditional with all the comforts of a city today.
In relation to natural environments, it has a coastline of more than 9 kilometers of beaches that start from the fishing town of El Morche, which is traveled by the Senda Litoral and which has one of the only two dune areas that remain in the Malaga province.

In addition to the extensive Ferrara beach, in Torrox Costa visitors can also enjoy the Roman villa, the ancient necropolis, thermal baths and even a factory for salting fish and another for amphorae for its packaging that allowed transporting fish by sea to Rome.
To make this rich heritage known, from the Lighthouse Interpretation Center there are special guided tours prepared with caution in the face of the pandemic. The days of scheduled visits have also been increased compared to other summers to cover more tourists but from smaller groups.
In addition, there is an extensive program of activities adapted to the new situation, with recreational and sports activities that will be carried out in complete safety.
An unbeatable offer, in addition to being able to enjoy a sardine skewer in any of its restaurants or terraces, or to practice water sports activities in a sustainable environment.
All this makes Torrox an ideal and safe destination not only to spend the holidays, but to stay and live throughout the year.
Óscar Medina, Mayor of Torrox. "Torrox is ready to lead tourism on the Eastern Costa del Sol" What are the prospects for this 'new normal'? We have to be optimistic for the high season. We are prepared to lead tourism on the Eastern Costa del Sol. National tourism already has a high weight in itself in our municipality, and we are seeing a growth these days in hotel reservations, tourist apartments and rural houses. I have to point out the growing drive that reservations are having in rural tourism, in which we have a wide offer of beautiful farmhouses and farms. Tourism is undoubtedly one of the pillars of the municipality, what plans are th
