The gastronomy of Torrox is varied, highlighting sea products and vegetables. One of the star dishes of the municipality are migas, an example of the culinary tradition of Torrox. So much so that they dedicate a day of festivities to this dish, called día de las migas. That day, all the inhabitants and tourists of the area go out to the streets to taste the migas along with other typical dishes of Torrox like ensalada arriera, potaje de hinojos and jureles fritos. As for drinks, sangrias and beer are very common to cope with the high temperatures during the summer.
During summer holidays, the population greatly increases due to the massive arrival of local and international tourists to the area.

The average annual temperature is 18.2 ° C, without great inequalities. Torrox's economy is based on tourism, agriculture and construction - a sector that has grown in recent years.
