Beyond the beach
There is more to Torre del Mar than the beach. I found it interesting enough just wandering around town or along the coast.
Many of the local restaurants get their fish from the coastal area around Torre del Mar.
It was perfectly safe to walk around the town, even late at night. Some of the locals advised me to be careful after dark but I never encountered any problems.
We didn't want to leave
We stayed in Torre del Mar about 1 1/2 and when we were ready to leave to go to Nerja a friend of us called us to tell us that he was leaving so we had to go back to Malaga, to the airport.This means that we never saw Nerja.
