2 bedroom Apartment in Torrox Costa
Apartments with large terraces and magnificent views.
The development is located in one of the quietest and most pleasant areas of the Eastern Costa del Sol. 20 minutes from Torre del Mar and 30 from Málaga, it is the ideal place to reside, or as a second home for vacations. The proximity of the beach is one of the attractions of Marinsa Beach, an exceptional quality promotion.
On the ‘Route of Sun and Wine’, but still one of the quieter resorts in the Costa del Sol, Torrox has breezy summers and mild winters.
Torrox Pueblo is a traditional town on the steep slopes of the Sierra Almijara mountains. It was a wealthy settlement under Moorish rule due to its role in the silk trade; much of the grand medieval whitewashed buildings stem from that period. It lies four kilometres inland of the Torrox Costa, an international tourist centre and promenade (paseo) of bars and restaurants alongside a sandy beach. The paseo comes alive at night with tourists, mostly from Northern Spain, Germany and the UK socialising. There are street entertainers and market stalls open until the early hours. Then finally, Torrox Park is a quiet, modern urbanization that fills the space between the town and the coast.
The Sierra Almijara mountains are part of a vast natural park that attracts hikers, climbers and hunters — with a sector sequestered as a game reserve. The Nerja Caves showrooms and accessible caves show just a taste of the five-kilometre underground network of caverns and sinkholes. Since the caves opened to the public in 1960, they have been the location for the annual ‘Festival de Música y Danza’ in addition to a venue for one-off concert performances. For the even more adventurous, the Sierra Nevada Mountain ski resorts are close enough for a day trip.
If you prefer to stay local, there are plenty of traditional restaurants in the Pueblo with specialities such as locally made wine, grilled sardines, garlic soup with grapes and sweet churros — doughnut like sticks to dip in chocolate sauce. On the last Sunday before Christmas Torrox celebrates its Festival of Migas. Migas is a dish made from fried breadcrumbs, green peppers and chorizo. Thousands of visitors attend every year for a feast of wine, music and dancing.
Even though many expats have made Torrox their home, it still maintains its authentic Spanish feel. First discovered by Germans tourists and later by the British, both have strong expat communities. It’s generally considered more laid back, family friendly place than the more Western towns on this coast.
Torrox area is one of the most affordable villages on the Costa del Sol. Along the Costa you’ll find apartments with rental potential, more apartments and villas inland in the urbanisations, and in the town itself, old-fashioned terraced townhouses.
Much of the local amenities can be found on either the coastal promenade or within the Torrox Pueblo. There are banks, post offices, car parks, petrol stations and public gyms within walking distance from either of these centres. There are supermarkets in Torrox Costa and Torrox Pueblo.
Torrox is situated off the N-340 coast road and the AP-7 motorway is just 40 minutes drive from Malaga airport. A bus service runs from Malaga city centre to Torrox Pueblo and a regular service runs between the town and the coast.
Torrox has two health centres: one located on the coast and another inland in the village. There are also three private clinics with English and German speaking doctors on the coast. There are several dental clinics and a hospital in nearby Axarquia.
Cost of Living
If you eat Spanish produce, run a small car and eat locally, day to day living is much cheaper than in Northern Europe.
