Torrox revisited did not disappoint.
Posted Jul 29, 2015
We had stayed here three years ago and had such a lovely time we came back (very unusual for us!). Torrox village has a very unspoiled, authentic atmosphere. Lovely little whitewashed streets, many more locals than tourists. On both of our visits musical entertainments in the town square were genuine local community festivals and not pitched at tourists at all. Despite this 'other world' feel Torrox is actually incredibly easy to get to from Malaga airport and the fantastic road system means other great places to visit such as Cordoba and Granada are very much in reach as day trips, while the amazing mountain village of Competa is only up the road (a very winding road). Add to that the Torrox Costa which is 5 - 10 minutes by car, a popular holiday destination with all the usual beach attractions on one side of the delightful long 'paseo' we loved to walk along and endless cafes and restaurants on the other. The great majority of holiday makers here are Spanish and the whole place has a totally family friendly feel with no noisy nightclubs. Grannies and toddlers mingling with all ages after midnight in a completely relaxed, safe atmosphere. It suits us perfectly. Eating out very cheap compared to UK.
