Torrox is a popular tourist town and district in the Costa del Sol region of Malaga Province in Andalucia, on Spain’s southern coast. Nestled in the mountainside, it is a modern coastal resort with a lively residential area that still retains that traditional Spanish feel. With an approximately 20 minute drive north of Nerja and less than an hour’s drive east of Malaga city, Torrox is comprised of four areas; Torrox town itself, Torrox Costa, El Morche and El Peñoncillo. Spectacular scenery, charming towns, fantastic beaches and around 300 days of annual sunshine make Torrox a perfect base to enjoy both the coast and Malaga’s vast mountain region.
With year-round sunshine and coastal beauty spots only 4km apart, Torrox boasts an outstanding natural landscape, where the Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama mountains merge into the fine sand of its family-friendly beaches. Discover a landscape of small coves, crystalline waters and cliffs, made even better with the subtropical climate. Find your own little slice of coastal heaven on local Blue Flag Ferrara beach, or El Morche, just a 10 minute drive from Torrox Costa. Calaceite, Torcasol and Peñoncillo beaches are ideal for a laid back day unwinding by the coast.
