The Costa del Sol region
The Costa Del Sol is renown for its excellent climate throughout the year, which makes it one of the most popular holiday destinations. Not only a summer resort but the mild climate means you can take advantage of a range of outside activities during the winter months. Caleta de Velez is situated between Torre del Mar and Algarrobo Costa - both are within easy walking distance.
The area is flat and has not been over developed as with some of the west coast areas - original features have been preserved so you can still enjoy typical streets, squares, traditional food at good prices. There is a good bus service into coastal resorts east of Caleta de Velez such as Torrox Costa or Nerja, famous for its caves, 20 minutes.
Malaga city can also be reached by bus and has a train station to some of the resorts on the west coast. A small working town slightly inland close to Torre del Mar is Velez Malaga. Some typical white washed Andalucian villages to discover such as Frigiliana and Torrox Pueblo.
Caleta de Velez
Caleta de Velez 4 km long flat promenade/beach stretches to Torre del Mar - approx 10 minutes walk and in the other direction to Algarrobo Costa. You'll will often see joggers in the morning so if you want to get fit then this location is perfect and its on your door step! The promenade does continue along further than 4 km for the more experienced runners.
There are bars and restaurants on the beach and promenade serving traditional specialities. There is exercise equipment and children's park facilities on the beach at Caleta, Algarrobo and Torre del Mar.
There is a bus stop just two minutes across from the apartment block and there is Aldi supermarket so you can take the shopping trolley that's in the apartment and walk across easily.
There are water sports as well as boat moorings at the marina which is just a few minutes walk. On the other side of the apartment block is like a traditional town with lots of little family run cafe bars, restaurants plus supermarkets, banks, bread shop, cake shops, a new gym etc.
Every Saturday morning this area hosts a huge street market, great for local produce - this is one of the best markets in the area.
