WHEN it comes to ideal weather in Southern Europe, Spain stands out, and nestled within this sun-kissed country lies a hidden gem that boasts the best climate in all of Europe – Torrox.
According to ‘La Farola,’ a travel section of ‘Malaga Hoy,’ Torrox, a picturesque white town in the Axarquia region of Spain, offers an average annual temperature of 18ºC, creating a subtropical paradise where the sea meets the mountains.
Torrox distinguishes itself by maintaining a perfect balance between summer heat and winter chill, making it the European epitome of pleasant climate year-round.
In addition to its climate, the town offers a variety of outdoor activities and attractions.
During the summer months, Torrox’s nine-kilometre coastline becomes a focal point for visitors. There are seven beaches to choose from, each with its own unique charm.
One of the notable beaches is Calaceite Beach, which is renowned for its tranquillity. It provides a peaceful atmosphere for sunbathing and swimming.
What makes Calaceite Beach even more intriguing is the shipwreck of ‘El Delfin’ that lies beneath its waters. This underwater secret adds an element of adventure for snorkelers and divers interested in exploring the history that the shipwreck holds.
Additionally, the Torrox Watchtower, situated close to the beaches, offers a glimpse into the town’s historical past. These watchtowers were once used for coastal defence against pirates and other maritime threats, and they now serve as cultural landmarks that visitors can explore.
Beyond its beaches and historical sites, Torrox also offers a charming old town with narrow streets, white-washed houses, and plenty of restaurants serving delicious Mediterranean cuisine.
The town’s great weather and variety of activities make it an ideal destination for those seeking a blend of nature and culture, year-round.
