Torrox in Malaga is a place of eternal spring and has become the jewel in the crown of the Costa del Sol by managing to always be warm. This fortunate climate is due to the Valley of the River Torrox, whose river limits temperature extremes as it opens up to the sea, whilst at the same time the surrounding mountains keep out strong winds.

With inland and costal beauty spots only 4km apart, Torrox has a subtropical landscape where its mountains merge into its seven blue flag beaches. A charming place in Torrox is its Lighthouse, it is one of the few examples of its type across the whole of the Malaga province that is open to the public as a cultural heritage point.
