For those of you visiting Torrox

We have lived in Torrox for the last 2 years and for both residents and visitors alike, it is ideal in may respects. Firstly Torrox claims to have the best climate in Europe and they certainly have the records to back that up.

Torrox copnsists of three parts, the peubl which is a typical andulucian villgae, Torrox Park whgich is an urbanisation situated between thje pubelo and the Torrox costa itlsef, which is where we live.

Unlike many parts of Spain, the coastal strip is not overdeveloped and easily acccessible, with a beach (manmade of dark sand). It has a long flat prokenade, which si lovely to walk along. There is only one hotel in Torrox Costa whichg is the Iberostar Malaga Playa (formerly the RIU Ferrara) however frontline beach apartments can be rented and off seasson (ourside July and August) apartments currently cost arounf 300 - 400€ a month and can aslo be rented on a weekly basis. There are 4 Supermarkets, Banks and Pharmacies so all the basics are within easy walking distance.

The real beauty is though that the Paseo Maritimo is lined with plenty of bars and restaruants, unlike many other places there is no traffic so it is safe to let the children run ahead

Our own favourite restaurant is the Caribe which serves delicious food is amazingly good value and right next to it is a Sports Bar, to watch the odd footy game.

In Avenida America there is a German Travel Agnecy (yes they speak English), where you can book trips to Granada and other places of interest, as well as a Car Hire firm as well.

The cheapest and nest way to get around though ios by bus, in fact if you feel you are upto, when you arrive in Malaga Airport, you can take the transit bus to the Bus Staton (2€ ticket) and then the Bus out to Torrox (3,50€ ticket), defintely the cheapest way to get to to and from the Airport as a taxi would cost around 80€.

You will see a lot of sign in German and hear a lot of German spoken as Torrox Costa is home to the largest expatriate community of Germans in Spain, however it has retained a very mkuch Spanish feel to it as well.
