Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The surprising thing about Torre del Mar is how a coastal town of it's size has gone unnoticed for so long by all except the Spanish. This becomes even more of a mystery after you discover it and realise that a more perfect Spanish holiday resort will be hard to find. What the Spanish have known and kept to themselves for years is that Torre is the perfect combination of working seaside town and relaxing resort , neither aspect seeming to affect the other , Torre del Mar is a completely flat area which makes getting around very easy.
Despite the town and beach sitting side by side it is well spread out and gives you the feeling of the two being separate. A perfect marriage of all that is good about a busy Spanish town with all that is great about a sleepy beach resort. You can really please yourself and choose the pace to suit your every whim ! Relax and enjoy !
