The town of Rincon de la Victoria lies on a 9km stretch of beach on the Costa del Sol in Axarquia. Located just 10km from the tourist haven of Malaga, a holiday rental in Rincon de la Victoria is easily accessible and filled with attractions, leisure facilities and services, and has become the favourite summer getaway for Spanish holiday makers.
Dating back to pre-historic times, the settlement of Rincon de la Victoria has a range of fascinating prehistoric sites, Stone Age art discoveries and collections of ancient tools. The most impressive monuments to explore from a Rincon de la Victoria apartment or villa have to be the extravagant Roman fortress or the dominant Castle of Bezmiliana in Castellon. However, if you are staying in Rincon de la Victoria accommodation, there is one place which makes essential viewing; the Las Cuevas del Tesoro. Otherwise known as the Treasure Caves, the Las Cuevas del Tesoro caves are the only visible marine caves in Europe, and the walls which protect the underground pools and mighty stalagmites are adorned with Palaeolithic paintings.
The beach is of course a huge attraction in Rincon de la Victoria. Stretching for over 9kms from a Moorish watch tower high on the western headland to the palm tree covered headland in the east, the Rincon de la Victoria beach is a delightful place to relax in the sun. Along the length of the beach are a handful of excellent chiringuitos (beach fish restaurants), bars and water sport centres. The beachfront promenade has recently been redone to the highest standards, making the walk from Rincon de la Victoria to the shrine of the Virgin del Carmen in the westernmost tip a real pleasure.
The events calendar in Rincon de la Victoria is filled with festivals, fiestas, concerts and exhibitions throughout the year. The main festival, and probably the best time to take holiday rental accommodation in Rincon de la Victoria, is the five day fiera from 11th – 16th July.

The Jabegas regattas which occur around the same time are great fun to watch, and the whole town becomes a hive of excitement.
The local 18 hole golf course, the Anoreta Golf Course is regarded as one of the finest in the whole of Spain, and as long as you have a handicap certificate, you too can try the best of Spanish golf.
