It’s the best climate in Europe you know. At least that’s what the sign says as you drive in. Torrox Costa is a real Spanish gem. The coastal area stretches for three kilometres and woven between the lot is the Paseo Maritimo a flat pedestrianised promenade, beginning at El Faro (the lighthouse) and running along the entire length of the beach, Playa Ferrara. Most of the town’s shops, bars and restaurants are situated along the Paseo Maritimo, or among the apartment buildings that worm back to the main coast road.
Mondays in Torrox Costa are market day and there are bargains a plenty on offer from the various stalls. You can pick up your fruit and vegetables for the week, ceramics, clothes, towels and much more.
The main beach at Torrox Costa is Playa Ferrara, however other quieter and less crowded beaches in the area are Playa Peñoncillo and Playa Las Lindas. To the east of the main town, alongside the lighthouse, the new 'Balcon de Torrox' has been constructed as a lookout to the sea and headlands and with transparent flooring looking down on Roman remains.
