Fuengirola

 

 

Fuengirola is situated just twenty minutes from Málaga airport, the local train station provides easy access to such popular nearby resorts as Benalmádena , Arroyo de la Miel, Torremolinos and Málaga capital as well. Fuengirola is probably most famous for it's more than five miles (8 km) of sandy beaches, with high-rise hotels and apartments offering magnificent views of the Mediterranean and the coastline. The beaches along Fuengirola, Los Boliches - Gaviotas and Torreblanca hold the European blue quality flag.The beachfront is flanked by one of the longest promenades in Spain to provide the perfect venue for the traditional Spanish "paseo", the popular past time of promenading with no particular destination in mind!

Fuengirola offers entertainment for all tastes and ages from a ride on the tourist train or horse and carriage around the town to a visit to the zoo. Enjoy a day at the water park or spend some time in the Sohail River Park. At night, Fuengirola truly comes alive with every kind of bar, restaurant and club you can imagine. Here you will also find cinemas with a wide range of films, theatres with a full program and in the summer, regular festivals and concerts at the old Arab castle.

Fuengirola is an international resort, with tourists and residents of every nationality and this is evident, everywhere you look but it is also particularly popular with Spanish nationals, many of whom own summer apartments here. The advantage of staying here is that it is a compact seaside resort and town which has an excellent selection of supermarkets and competitively priced shops. The Tuesday market is the biggest outdoor market on the coast and attracts visitors from nearby resorts as well as the locals. There is also a huge Saturday boot sale here with the usual selection of items on sale.

Next to the main resort area you'll find Los Boliches with winding narrow streets and traditional whitewashed houses. This is a small community tagged onto the end of Fuengirola. Los Boliches itself has its own beaches, shopping centres and much more and it's quieter than Fuengirola centre. Eastwards of Los Boliches is Torreblanca, due to it's position on the limits of the town it tends to be the most quiet part of Fuengirola.
