It is hard to believe in March that Torre during the summer months becomes packed with tourists. It was about 40 minutes from Malaga airport, well signed and the wide, tiled 3km long promenade and beach (despite being grey and gritty) were very clean with virtually no litter and dog mess as might be expected. The walk to Caleta de Velez either on the promenade or on the beach sendero was most enjoyable. The garden areas were well tended, only the aggravation of the parakeets spoiling the quiet. The town has everything one could require and the prices are generally far less than many coastal areas, especially those to the west of Malaga. Restaurants bound, and didn't appear to be over-priced. It is a very easy short drive into the hinterland of mountains and agriculture and the snow capped mountains provide a beautiful backdrop. We had a car for the week and went to the mountains and east along the coast to Nerja, Almunecar and Salobrena and much preferred Torre to those. East of Malaga is far less touristy and commercial, and much more Spanish than to the west of Malaga, though the beaches are generally greyer and more gritty.

It's really a beautiful resort with a long promenade, not much to do for the beer drinkers, which was good for us.

The beach is backed by a long promenade filled with bar and restaurants for refreshments and lunches as well as shops for those beach essentials.
Things to do
Whether you're visiting as part of a group, family or couple there is something for everyone in the resort to keep you entertained.
