Torrox Costa is a well-known resort in Spain and it attracts many tourists due to its unique attractions. Even though the area isn’t as versatile and developed as the neighbouring resort towns of Costa del Sol, the tourist numbers are still high especially during summer. The area is very close to Torrox Pueblo, an inland area just a few kilometres away from the coast.
Torrox is among the few regions in all of Europe that boasts of a great temperate weather. With hills surrounding it, the town is protected from cold winds making it a calm and exciting place to visit any time of the year.
El Penochillo is Torrox Costa’s most beautiful and renowned beach. Besides possessing a blue flag award, the beach boasts of a nautical school that allows one to practice not just windsurfing but canoeing as well.
Besides the beautiful El Penochillo beach, there’s a lot more you could enjoy here. There’s a plethora of great bars on the Paseo Maritimo and also on the stretch that leads to the beach. Most of these bars host music shows concerts and festivals. Not to mention there’s still a great selection of discos and pubs where the young can visit.

On the main walkway (Paseo Maritimo), you will find shops, restaurants, bars and plenty of other amenities and if you happen to come here over summer, you will be lucky to come across temporary stalls that sell different types of art, souvenirs, and crafts as well.
