Eastern Costa del Sol
Located in the eastern part of the province, this is the area of the Province of Malaga with the greatest number of municipalities.
Its towns comprise picturesque havens which have managed to conserve the beauty of their streets, squares, monuments and popular festivals with a backdrop of light and colour, and which, coupled with its weather conditions and environmental attractions, make this an ideal place for visiting. And it seems that the lands of the Axarquia are like a miniature Malaga: mountains, valleys, mountain ranges and coastline all together.
The coast of the Axarquia is characterised by its cliffs and coves, with headlands and watchtowers, beaches and gardens, tradition and tourism.
Our walk through these lands begins in Nerja, a municipality with impressive cliffs (Maro-Cerro Gordo), which had been declared Natural Park, not to mention their famous caves. We follow our way and arrive at Torrox and Algarobo, two villages, which knew how to bond their tourist offer with their traditions. Later we will arrive at Velez Malaga, the capital of these lands. This municipality, with rich cultural heritage, is full of surprises. Torre del Mar is the window from which we can catch sight of the Mediterranean Sea. In the end, we will reach Rincon de la Victoria, a small fishing village, which adapted itself to the tourist demand.
