“Ghastley”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

What an awful depressing place - built up and nasty; full of tatty bars and shops without an ounce of atmosphere.

“A nice long flat walk by the sea”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

The Paseo Maritimo of Torrox Costa is ideal for exercise on the flat with plenty of places to sit down if you need a rest and a good range of eating and drinking places. It is spoilt only by people on Bicycles and skates who ignore the prohibition signs so keep your eyes and ears open! Nice beach most of the year but can be damaged by storms also best to avoid during strong winds.

“El Faro Torrox Costa Promenade”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Stayed in great apartment block down the El Faro (Lighthouse) end of the town. Didn't realise quite how windy it can be here but when the sun shines and it nearly always did, this made up for the wind. I think this corner is particularly windy. Worth mentioning is the Mini-Market Jeyma the proprietor put up very well with my interpretation of spanish and helped me learn the words for most of his fruit and vegetables.Very cheap and huge fruits and vegetables all reasonably priced and great Torrox Wine, bring your own bottle. Also the friendliness and helpful take-away lady Asador De Pollo Elena. Best curries,pizzas and cooked chickens. Just order and she will tell you a time to collect them. Delicious and very, very reasonable. Also a visit to Jimmy's Bar on a Tuesday evening where we had great Jam Sessions with some great musicians and a big mention to Karl who kept us entertained with his singing, guitar playing and the sounds that came out of his wooden box that produced incredible drum sounds. Amazing.

“February break”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

The cheapness and friendliness compared to further south on Costa del Sol. Ideal for touring other places like Granada, Nerja etc.
