Playa de Vilches is one of the smallest of the beaches in Torrox Costa, only about 120 metres in length and, on average, about 20 metres wide.

It is a small, quiet and fairly isolated cove accessed from the N-340 coastal road. You can reach Playa de Vilches either by car or by public transport, the Malaga-Nerja bus stopping nearby.

Facilities include:

  • Parking
  • Walkway access
  • Disabled access
  • Sunbed and parasol hire
  • Showers
  • Waste bins

The beach is dark sand/gravel and the general bathing conditions are ‘calm’.

The beach is virtually on the border with the neighbouring municipality, Nerja, and it here that it is currently planned to build a marina. However, the marina idea has been ‘talked about’ for the past 30 years or more.
