Torre del Mar
Torre del Mar is one of the main tourist resorts east of Malaga on the Costa del Sol. Located about half way between Malaga and Nerja. The resort of Torre del Mar is the beach resort of the inland town and part of the municipal district of Vélez-Málaga, capital of the Axarquia region.
There are unsubstantiated claims that Torre del Mar once formed part of an ancient Greek settlement known as Manake which is believed to have been destroyed by the Carthaginians, prior to the arrival of the Romans. These days the town is better known for its four kilometres of sandy beaches lined with restaurants, bars and apartments; the latter primarily catering for summer visitors.
One of the resort's most pleasant features is the extended esplanade which follows the coast to reach the Marina of Caleta de Vélez which has over 200 berths and offers sailing and a variety of other water sports. Its lively cafés and restaurants also provide a good place in which to idle the time away, as well as enjoy excellent seafood.
