Scuba diving in Torrox
Torrox is a municipality in the province of Málaga in the autonomous community of Andalusia, southern Spain. Federico García Lorca Granada airport is located in 120 km from Torrox. This town is remarkable for its beaches and its historic-artistic heritage (Roman archaeological remains, as well as 15th-century watchtowers, and the Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación Church). Tourists can enjoy this quiet place while walking among the brilliant white-walled houses that cling to the steep slope on which the town is built. Located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and at the foothills of the Sierra de Almijara, the city is divided in two main sections: Torrox Pueblo (4km/2.5mi inland) and Torrox Costa, a popular coastal strip for scuba divers on the sea. Scuba divers in these waters will find a number of nice and challenging dive sites. Both novice and experienced divers will be able to enjoy the abundance of sea life and explore reefs, tunnels, walls, caves, and wrecks. Great diving can also be found in the marine reserve in Almuñecar and further south, near Gibraltar and near Tarifa (divers can dive in both in the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean on the same day).
