On our Walk Andalucia holidays you will have a free day where you get to choose your own itinerary. We have some ideas which we know will provide you with wonderful memories! Whether you are looking for some relaxing time or would prefer something more active, this lovely area of Andalucia has alot to offer. We can provide you with maps and bus timetables for your use.
So here’s some suggestions for you…
If you’d like to have a few games of tennis, we can recommend the court at a local B&B www.cortijoamaya.com where you can rent the court for only 6€ an hour. It’s in a lovely quiet idyllic setting, not far from the coast. You may like to walk down to the beach for some lunch and a swim afterwards. Only 15 minutes.
Sunbathing on the beach?
A bus ride into the pretty, seaside town of Nerja?
Nerja is a pretty town which has retained it’s charm of a fishing village. There are interesting and varied shops to wander around, beautiful coves in which to swim and some very fine tapas restaurants to enjoy lunch or an evening meal.
Nerja is only an 8 minute bus ride from Torrox Costa or approx 15.00 euros in a taxi from Torrox Pueblo.
Why not enjoy lunch in Málaga?
There are regular buses into the beautiful city of Málaga….ask for timetable….
Even if you have been to this lovely city before we would suggest you hop off the bus at El Palo, which is a suburb of Málaga. Head for the seafront and take a stroll along the Paseo enjoying a coffee at one of the beach side cafes. You will then reach the fabulous El Balneario restaurant situated just a couple of meters from the Mediterranean. El Balneario was an 1800 public baths which was then renovated for the bourgeois of Málaga and ladies and gentlemen were able to bathe in the healing waters. A tennis court was also introduced and this is where Málaga had it’s first ever football pitch. The building fell into disrepair but has now been renovated to be a ‘ shabby chic ‘ restaurant. The menu is varied and the food is delicious.
Afterwards you could wander towards the brand new Muelle Uno which is the port area of Málaga and often has worldwide seagoing cruise ships in port. There are a number of beautiful ( expensive!) shops to browse around or take a Segway or boat tour from the port.
En route from El Balneario there are bikes to hire too.
The beach at Málaga is very wide, long with fine sand and shallow, warm water.
The return bus stop is near Muelle Uno.
However you choose to spend your free day, rest, relax and enjoy!
Málaga…….more than an ‘ airport’ city. It will surprise you with its quaint, narrow streets, beautiful parks,gardens and wonderful choices of bars and restaurants.
