Torre-del-Mar is an incredibly beautiful town with 4 kilometres of dark sand beaches.
Referred to as the “Tower of the Sea”, Torre del Mar got its name from the many watch towers used to guard the coast during Moorish and Roman times.
Now considered as a tourist treasure, this part of Costa del Sol in Andalucia, Spain is not so heavily flocked with tourists so you are always guaranteed a secluded space to enjoy the beach.
And running parallel to the stretch of beach is a splendid promenade with a cycle lane, walking areas, play areas for children as well as several water holes.
Things to do:
Being a commercial resort town, there are shops of every type, shape and size if you wish to indulge in a little bit of retail therapy.
Get to enjoy unique and locally made shoes and clothes available on the street markets or take your fill of local fresh foods from the weekly general market that happens every Thursday.
For a more generous shopping spree, you can head over to El Ingenio shopping centre which is just a short walk away from the esplanade.
You can get a tan, swim in the Mediterranean Sea or simply stroll along the coast.
This town boasts one of the longest and widest beaches along the coast.
Take pleasure in the various types of water sports being offered. Whether you would want to snorkel, jet ski or parasail on the beach, you’ll surely find something to do that is well worth remembering.
Commonly referred to as the Playa de Torre del Mar, it runs the entire length of the town and stretches to the neighbouring resort of Caleta de Velez.
Cafés and restaurants are strewn across the esplanade and along the town centre.
These lively cafés are great locations to idle while you enjoy the splendid scenery before you. The restaurants along the esplanade also offer marvellous fresh fish and seafood that is a must try for first time visitors.
