Details

Torrox Costa is essentially a coastal strip, about four kilometres away from the typical white village of Torrox Pueblo. 
 
The resort is very popular with sunseekers year-round and offers a choice of hotels, hostels and holiday apartments. There is also a sizeable foreign resident population, mainly British and German.

The Torroxean coast was settled in the time of the Phoenicians and Greeks, who traded in olives, figs and wine, but it was under the Romans that it rose in importance. The Romans built a kind of ‘factory’ to produce a type of anchovy fish paste known as ‘Garum’, and left as evidence of their presence the remains of a Roman necropolis and villa by the lighthouse where a mirador has recently been constructed. Close by are restored thermal baths and ovens which were used in the manufacture of ceramics.

The Moors arrived in the 7th century, naming their town ‘Turrux’, from where  the municipality gets its name. But the Moors settled inland in the hills where the village stands today, ensuring their protection against marauding pirates.

The nine kilometres of golden sands divided into the two main urbanisations of Torrox Costa and El Morche are undoubtedly the area’s main attraction. The beaches are equipped with a full range of services, from showers and beachbeds for hire to lifeguards during the peak summer season, and most years the Playa de Ferrara and Playa de El Morche are awarded European Union Blue Flags.

Two broad promenades lined with bars, cafés and restaurants of all kinds stretch all the way along the beaches.The Torrox Costa promenade is backed principally by modern apartment blocks, many of which are set around communal gardens with swimming pools, and a few small villas. The apartment blocks along El Morche are generally slightly less high rise, and are interspersed with larger villas and old-style fishermen’s houses.
