Beaches in Torre del Mar
The alluring Torre del Mar beaches were once among the best-kept secrets of Costa del Sol. Today, the sands of this southern coast of Spain is slowly being discovered by beach bums from around the world. What we’ve included here are the most outstanding features of this place.
The central part of the town’s beach front is separated from the streets by a long, scenic promenade known as the Paseo Maritimo de Torre del Mar. While strolling on this promenade, one can see on one side, the dark blue Mediterranean Sea, and on the other, a string of hotels, resorts, restaurants, and bars.
The Paseo Maritimo, which is divided into two sections (Paseo Maritimo de Poniente and Paseo Maritimo de Levante), is adorned with palm trees enclosed by circular tree benches. During summer, both sides of the promenade are filled with people. Further down the coast, large outdoor umbrellas dot the beach side while further inland, the streets are filled with visitors entering and leaving the commercial establishments.
Nearby, restaurants, bars and pubs serve delicious fried fish, sea food and mouth-watering tapas. You’ll also find easily accessible public toilets just a few meters away from where you’ll be settling down on the sand.
To be as close to the beach front as possible, we suggest that you book yourselves in the following hotels:
Proamar - along Paseo Marítimo de Poniente and with tel no: 952 547 970.
Miraya - also along Paseo Marítimo de Poniente and with tel no: 952 545 969.
Las Americas - along Calle de la Acera de la Marina and with tel no: 952 545 844.

The staff there can also facilitate if you’re interested in any water sports. A long stroll eastward along the coast will lead you to the Marina. On the other hand, if you go westbound, you’ll come across a couple of camping sites, Camping Torre del Mar and Laguna Playa Camping. There are other beach resorts aside from the one directly in front of Torre del Mar. For instance, if you continue westward, there’s Playa Naturista Almanat, Playa de Banajarafe, and Playa de la Victoria.
