Malaga has a region of towns located in the heart of the province, of which several of them stand out for their tourist potential, its gastronomy, natural spaces or artistic heritage and cultural interest. In this article we will make a tour through the towns of the Axarquía in which most tourists have interest whilst visiting Malaga.
The tour begins in Nerja, a municipality that has impressive cliffs and caves. Torrox and Algarrobo maintain a traditional charm that is worth getting to know on the way to Vélez-Málaga with important tourist centres such as Torre del Mar. We finish in Rincón de la Victoria, where we can enjoy a beautiful sea landscape.
This coastal town is located in the lower part of the Sierra Almijara, where the mountain and the sea make this town a special place. Nerja combines the beauty of its beaches with tropical plantations, where you can also enjoy a walk through its historic centre, which has still a lot of Andalusian flavour. Highly recommended is a visit to the cliffs of Maro, declared as protected natural area.
With a spring-like temperature almost all year round, Torrox is a town with a spectacular setting, with two different areas. On the one hand, you have the original town, with narrow streets, whitewashed walls and balconies adorned with flowers. While its coastal zone has seven beaches, one of which is distinguished each year with the Blue Flag. The most outstanding beaches for their easy access and good services are the beach of El Morche, Torcasol, Ferrara or the Peñoncillo.
In a privileged environment, Frigiliana is a municipality located in the Natural Park of the mountains of Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama, ideal for lovers of nature and hiking.
Its white houses, traditional gastronomy and Moorish past of narrow streets and passageways make Frigiliana one of the favourite enclaves of those who seek to enjoy their holidays with all five senses. Its urban centre is full of narrow and intricate, cobbled and steep streets that in many stretches become stairs like those that lead to Barrio Mudéjar.
You will find this beautiful village of Moorish layout, located between hills, with beaches and views over the Mediterranean at 32 kilometres away from Malaga. A visit to Algarrobo will not leave you indifferent: its views, its beaches, its Carnival, its flamenco nights. We recommend that you come with empty stomachs in order to try out their typical dishes and the delicious Algarrobo cake. And if you are feeling hungry for culture, this town offers you spectacular places to connect with history.
Its beautiful mountainous landscapes and its hills covered by vines, welcome you to Cómpeta, famous for its acclaimed wine. It receives the name of “Cornisa de the Costa del Sol”, due to its privileged location that extends through the Natural Park of the Mountain range of Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama. Its famous wine makes it one of the must-visit towns, as every August 15th the most solemn wine festival in Spain is celebrated in this town.
This municipality of Malaga is located in the Valley of the River Vélez, where its rich monumental heritage and its coast make it an ideal destination to visit all year round. Strolling through the old town of Vélez-Málaga, declared Historic Artistic Complex, is immersing oneself in history. A past that today conserves impressive architectural beauties and rooted traditions. And to relax, there is nothing better than to enjoy the Mediterranean Sea along this municipality of the Western Costa del Sol.
This town is ideal for lovers of nature and hiking. Its surroundings make it a paradise that still preserves Arab vestiges, with winding streets, houses and patios adorned with flowers. A village of the interior of Malaga with a great charm. It is considered as an artistic historical complex because of its charm of uniting the coast with the interior.
Rincón de la Victoria
This small fishers’ village near Malaga, opens itself to the sea with a large beach of almost 9 kilometres, which is the centre of the town. Its subtropical climate and lively promenade invite you to look over the Mediterranean at any time of year and enjoy an unforgettable stay by the sea. To discover this town, it is enough to approach its four centres: La Cala del Moral, Rincón de la Victoria and Torre de Benagalbón, in the coastal strip, and Benagalbón in the interior.
