Located between Malaga and Nerja, Torre del Mar is a holiday resort which has become very popular in recent years. Torre del Mar holidays offer a great beach and the town is also able to boast one of the best seafront promenades on the Costa del Sol. Although quieter in the winter months, the population of Torre del Mar swells during the summer and from the great hotels and facilities on offer it is not hard to see why.
Torre del Mar's extended esplanade leads to the Caleta de Velez Marina where sailing trips along with a variety of water sports can be booked. The other end of Torre del Mar by the mouth of the Velez River is where the majority of the town’s nightlife can be found and becomes busy over the weekends. To the north of Torre del Mar holidaymakers can explore Axarquia, the beautiful natural area to the north populated with traditional towns and villages.
Worth exploring on a Torre del Mar holiday is Velez-Malaga, the regional capital, which is located just to the north of Torre del Mar. Offering a wide range of sites to see including a variety of churches and castles, Velez-Malaga is well worth a trip for anybody who is looking to delve into the history and culture of Andalusia.
Costa Del Sol and Torremolinos offer around 300 to 320 guaranteed days of bright sunshine annually with a mean temperature of 18 degrees centigrade, and peak temperatures in high season (June to September) up in the late 20s centigrade. The cooling breezes on the Mediterranean coast take the edge of high temperatures, making for perfect family beach holiday resort conditions.
