“Tucked away”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Being a nearby resident I could be accused of being biased about this place, but if you like somewhere a little different then this could be it! This is a low key resort which will appeal to those seeking the quieter life. Restaurants and cafés aplenty along the long flat prom, from Asian Bens at the eastern end of the prom through to typical spanish fayre, one or two chinese restaurants, an Indian restaurant also. The busiest part of the beach is the eastern end nearest the lighthouse - with quite a number of regimented sunbeds available for hire. Go further west for the more casual beach users and chiringuitos offering the locally caught sardines etc. The prom is also host to the 4 star hotel (Ex RIU Playa Ferrara) Iberostar. In the summer the atmosphere is laid back, and small market stalls open on the prom offering goods from books to hand made jewellery.

“Good Flat Walk”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Torrox Costa offers a great flat promenade, which is very clean and there is a good variety of bars and eating places to choose from along the way. Ok the beach is not soft and sandy but the peaceful atmosphere is a lot more preferable than other resorts to the west of Malaga. What a delight to not be surrounded by beer swilling louts!

“Nice walk and good restaurants”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

Lovely promenade and good choice of restaurants. But that's about all the town has to offer, lot of sellers and stalls on the prom
