The towns of Costa del Sol take pride in their beautiful beaches. It is therefore expected that most of your activities here will be concentrated along the seashore where you can bask under the warm Mediterranean sun all day long.
For some family water fun without having to go to the beach, head out to Aqua Velis Water Park. Located in front of the El Ingenio shopping mall, it is the largest water park in all of Axarquia. There are about 20 rides here, including some which are suitable for smaller children.
If you prefer land-based activities, you’ll be happy to know that there are many outdoor sports you can find within the vicinity of Torre del Mar. You can take part in Segway tours, horse rides, or Quad bike tours. You can even hop on either a classic motor bike or mountain bike and have an adventure of a lifetime.
On some days, you might want to take your family to El Ingenio shopping mall for some laid-back fun like watching a movie, knocking down a few pins in the bowling alley, going on a food trip in the restaurants or fast foods, and of course shopping (or window shopping if nothing catches your fancy).
For an even more relaxing time, why not take a tour at the historical sites in nearby Velez-Malaga. You can also visit the Caleta de Velez, found in the eastern side of Torre del Mar. It’s the location of a fishing port and the local marina, where a few hundred yachts, boats and catamarans are docked.
Finally, after the sun dives below the horizon, we invite you to sample the bars and pubs in Velez-Malaga and Torre del Mar. It’s easy to go bar-hopping between these two communities because they’re separated by a mere 5 km.
On certain times during the year, religious festivals are held around town. The most important is held every July 16 to honor the Virgen del Carmen. The locals also observe the solemnity of the Holy Week. It is important to note that, while the streets of Torre del Mar are full of entertainment during summers, they are nearly empty during winter time.
