Holiday Villas in the Resort of Torrox Costa

Torrox Costa is a lively beach resort with an exceptional climate and great facilities. There are good places to eat and drink along the promenade and down the little side streets by the beach, and although this is not a big party place, there are a few lively pubs and discos for a younger crowd. A Torrox Costa villa is an ideal base to go exploring as it is near Nerja, Torre del Mar, Malaga, Seville, Frigiliana Ronda and Cordoba . You can even take a day trip to Gibraltar and Morocco! Nestling on the hillside four kilometres inland is Torrox Pueblo, a typical Spanish village of whitewashed houses, a church, a few bars and a local market. It is a charming place and well worth a visit. However, the real stars of the show at Torrox Costa are the beautiful and unspoilt beaches – Torrox has 6 miles of pristine coastline to its name.

Exploring Torrox Costa On Villa Holidays
Torrox Costa

Although Torrox Costa is essentially a modern holiday resort, it has an interesting history as it was once the harbour used by the merchants of Granada in the silk trade with Baghdad and Damascus. There are some remnants of Roman life here. You can see the remains of a Roman villa to the west of the lighthouse, and there are other traces of the past such as old fortresses and watch towers. Recently a viewing platform has been built with a transparent floor so that you can look down at the preserved remains of a Roman necropolis.

If you feel in need of a bigger cultural experience, you are less than an hour by car from Grenada. Visitors usually concentrate on the Alhambra, the 10th-century Berber palace that is a Unesco World Heritage Site. This Arabian Nights masterpiece is more or less intact. The architectural marvel framed by the stunning backdrop of the Sierra Nevada Mountains is a must-see. However, the old city has a great deal else to offer, from atmospheric Arabic tearooms to the fine tradition of free tapas with your drinks! Try the Bib-Rambla district of Granada for exceptionally good tapas.

Explore further inland and you will find the some very pretty whitewashed villages such as Torrox Pueblo and Competa. Torrox Pueblo nestles on the hillside behind Torros Costa, 145 metres above sea level with a dramatic backdrop of mountain ranges. It has a delightful square, Plaza de la Constitución, where you can sit under the trees with a beer and relax for a while.

Torrox Costa has a number of excellent beaches, but two are particularly worth mentioning. One of the biggest is Ferrara Playa, a Blue Flag beach with a long promenade lined with cafes and restaurants. This very popular beach is well supplied sun loungers and parasols but they get snapped up early! Playa de El Morche is the place to go for water sports, with a well-established dive centre on the promenade.
