Destination guide

Be ahead of the travel curve in Torre del Mar

Situated on the Spanish southern coast in the picturesque region of Andalusia and just east of Malaga, Torre del Mar is a small former fishing village turned hugely popular resort town, particularly among the Spanish. Today, the town is growing in popularity with outside visitors, too. Despite this recent surge in travelers, the city maintains its authentic Spanish feel, thanks to its waterfront nightclubs, excellent seafood scene, and friendly and bustling outdoor cafes. The surrounding region is also hugely attractive, with easy daytrips to Granada and Malaga very possible from your Torre del Mar vacation rental.

Things to do

Peek at the past between glimpses of local life

For a deeper insight into the local history, take a leisurely stroll along the wide, waterfront promenade, called the Paseo Maritimo, or pay a visit to the open-air Castillo De Torre Del Mar museum. Other cultural highlights include the Museo Del Azucar art museum, as well as the ornate Parroquia de San Andres Apostol church. If the kids in your crew are ready for a change of scenery from the beach, treat them to a day at the Aquavelis Water Park before heading back to your Torre del Mar vacation rental.

Activities

From marketing shopping to club hopping

Torre del Mar is best enjoyed along the cobbled streets and its waterfront promenade, stopping for glasses (or bottles!) of Cava and delicious seafood meals as you see fit. The street markets in town are worth seeking out for locally made provisions for your Torre del Mar vacation rental, so don't be afraid to take a stab at making your own tapas for your travel squad. Spend your days on the sandy beaches, take a boat ride out into the sea for expansive views of the coast, and cap it off out on the town, exploring the club scene.

Weather

Oh, those summer nights in Torre del Mar

June through September is Torre del Mar's peak season, thanks to its subtropical climate creating a seemingly endless stream of sunny days. This is when the town comes to life, with locals and visitors streaming out of nightclubs, onto the beaches, and back in again. When the winter comes, the town goes back to sleep, offering the few visitors a glimpse of local life. The weather stays mild all year long, so while you may not hit the beach in winter, you'll likely still be able to enjoy a meal outside along the water.

Natural features

Beauty between the mountains and the sea

Thanks to its location between the Mediterranean Sea and the Sierra Nevada mountains with the Velez River to the west, Torre del Mar boasts spectacular views in all directions. The true highlights of Torre del Mar are its sandy beaches and clear blue waters, so there's no need to stray far from home for natural beauty. But if you're up for an excursion, head into the nearby Sierras de Tejeda Almijara y Alhama Natural Park, or to the Montes de Malaga Natural Park for prime hiking and birdwatching.
