The Costa del Sol region
Known for THE BEST CLIMATE IN EUROPE, Axarquia has sub-tropical temperatures similar to southern California. Lapped by the Mediterranean waters of the Costa del Sol and sheltered by magnificent mountain ranges, Axarquia lies within the Malaga Province of Andalucia.
Axarquia is an Arab name meaning "The East". This area, to the east of Malaga City, is much less developed than the west. The Axarquia retains all the charm of yesteryear thanks to unspoilt havens and attractive coves and beaches where bathers can flee the crowds to be found to the west of Malaga. Whilst becoming better known, the area still offers an ideal location for those in search of greater tranquillity. The Axarquia is one of the few areas to still feature beaches that have managed to escape the all-consuming urban development that has invaded other parts of the Mediterranean coast.
Major attractions are the spectacular unspoilt countryside and coastal villages. The hill and mountain scenery are ablaze with flowers and blossom from January onwards.
Axarquia is riven with deep valleys lined with terraces and irrigation channels that go back to the time of Muslim occupation. Almost all the villages that dot the olive, almond and vine-planted hillsides are of Arab origin and the influence is seen in the layout of the narrow, winding streets lined with white-washed houses reflecting the sunlight. There are also many lush tropical river valleys with orange and lemon groves, eucalyptus, avocado, banana, kiwi, chirimoya and mango trees. Wild herbs and lavendar grow everywhere and further up the foothills and mountain slopes there are pine, oak and carob trees.
The natural sub-tropical climate for the latitude is of hot summers, mild winters and little or no rainfall either side of the long summer season. This is further influenced by surrounding geographical features. Huge mountains to the north and east provide a barrier from cold north winds and the 50 kilometres of coastline maintain mild temperatures in winter. 3,000 hours of sunshine are enjoyed each year, an average of 8.3 hours per day. Despite the warm climate, from November to May skiing is enjoyed in the Sierra Nevada, less than two hours drive away. There is also a wide choice of golf courses and other sports available year round.
Archaeological remains from Phoenecian, Carthaginian, Roman and Arab eras dot the countryside and coastline, whilst artifacts dating from 30,000BC to the Bronze Age can be seen in underground caves notably at Nerja and Rincon de la Victoria.
Torrox in the Axarquía region, is not overcrowded as the west side of Málaga, and at easy reach, there are many typical whitewashed villages that worh a visit, such as Competa and Frigiliana famous for its wine, or Nerja with its famous Balcon de Europa and the caves.
The coastline around Torrox has over 6 miles of beaches to choose from and a host of local historical attractions including the Roman remains and an ancient lighthouse situated at the end of the promenade. The promenade itself comes alive in the evening with many restaurants, bars and market stalls.The local market for bargain hunting is on Monday.
There is a water-park open during the summer months 15 minutes drive, as well as the golf course Baviera about ten minutes drive.
Local public transport facilities are excellent for getting around meaning that although a hire car is recommended, it is by no means a necessity.
