Torrox is a quiet, beautiful location away from the energy of nearby Torremolinos and Marbella. The city is divided into two sections. In Torrox Pueblo you'll find tapas bars, spas and culture among historic winding streets, while Torrox Costa's coastal area has warm, welcoming sands. You'll find small complexes and villas here as opposed to high-rise All Inclusive Costa del Sol hotels, which gives the area a more authentic Spanish feel.
The relaxing beach resort of Torrox Costa boasts long stretches of sand dotted along nine kilometres of coastline. A lot of them have Blue Flag awards, meaning they are incredibly clean and have lots of facilities, like showers and toilets. Most beaches also have a range of cafes and restaurants nearby.
If you want a particularly secluded spot, grab your towel and head to Vílchez or Mazagarrobo for some alone-time. Sunbathing next to the Roman ruins is an opportunity that can't be passed up.
For active types, there's a range of water-based activities to keep you cool. The waves here are great for surfers, while there are plenty of opportunities to try scuba diving if you're feeling adventurous.
