One arrives on the Autovía del Mediterráneo (highway), heading towards Motril and turning off at La Cala del Moral, or keeping to the autovía. The N-340 road passes through the town, and even from here you can see that this was once a typical fishing town on the coast. The municipality covers an area of 30 square kilometers, and offers something for everybody: lots of hotels, restaurants and bars, ten kilometers of coastline for water sports or simply lying in the sun, an excellent golf course and other sporting facilities.
The 18-hole Añoreta Golf Course, designed by Jose María Cañizares, is on the border with Torre de Benagalbón, and is considered one of the best golf courses in Spain. The promenade that links La Cala del Moral with Rincón is seven kilometers long, and from here there are wonderful views over Malaga Bay. One of the old traditions that has not yet been lost in Rincón de la Victoria is net fishing on the beaches in the early morning. A net of about 40 or 50 meters long is thrown into the water by a group of men, who make a wide circle with it, gradually pulling it in to the beach again full of fish, if they are lucky. This is a sight that is seldom seen in other parts of Europe, and well worth getting out of bed early for. Generally the people who live here work in Malaga but prefer the fresh sea air you get from Rincon de la Victoria.
Like most areas along the coast, it does get very busy during the summer months, however out of season it is a more relaxed place. Rincón de la Victoria is the starting point for the so-called 'sun and avocado route'.
This seaside village, surrounded by tropical vegetation and vast tracts of sugar cane plantations, has much to offer to those who love living in a quite area but with all the facilities around as shops, leisure activities or good restaurants where having very good seafood. A little bit more apart of the town, there is a big complex with cinemas, restaurants, hypermarket and shops.
