Fuengirola

Fuengirola is situated between Malaga and Marbella, close to the town's of Mijas and Benalmadena; it is one of the most popular tourist towns on the Costa del Sol, a great holiday choice for families and children with a fantastic offering of beach, facilities and activities.

Tourism is an important industry for Fuengirola, with its 6 km of splendid beaches, seaside promenade and endless attractions. Yet if you look behind the touristic facade you will find an old-fashioned, friendly Spanish working town by the sea.

Fuengirola is located just 25 kilometres from the city of Malaga and its international airport. The town has good bus and rail transport options to and from Malaga, and a bus service to Marbella, to the west, and beyond.


History
Over the centuries the area has been occupied by the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans and Moors. The history records date back to 2 B.C.

The town is dominated by the old Moorish castle, Castillo Sohail, which sits atop a hill just outside the town. In ancient times the area was known as Suel and then Suhayl, hence the castle’s name.

Roman remains have also been found in sites in around Fuengirola and can be found in the Museo de Historia (History Museum) in the town.


Places to visit
Just 8 km away is Benalmadena, with its elegant Casino de Torrequebrada, Selwo Marina and Tivoli World, and the capital city of the province Malaga, is 20 kilometres away. Malaga is a beautiful city of culture, history and great cuisine and well worth a visit. You can reach the city by bus or train, as well as by car.

The charming pueblo (village) of Mijas is around a 10 minute drive away and although it is now more populated with foreign residents and tourists, you still get the feel of traditional Spain here.

The glamorous seaside resorts of Marbella and Puerto Banus are around 25-30 minutes journey time in the car or taxi, or you can catch a bus, which takes a little longer as it stops at every urbanisation/village along the way.


Beaches
The broad sandy beaches of Fuengirola and Los Boliches offer heaps of facilities, restaurants, sports, showers and toilets. Carvajal, Gaviotas, Boliches, San Francisco, Santa Amalia and Castillo beaches beckon. Chiringuitos line the beachfront with delicious smells of ‘Sardinas al Speto’ (Sardines on the spit) wafting out along the promenade. All serve tasty traditional Southern Spanish seaside dishes, such as Gazpacho, sardines on the spit, paella and pescaito frito (mixed fried fish platter).

Around town
Fuengirola offers all the facilities of a major tourist centre: restaurants, bars, discos, sports clubs, etc. There is also a large shopping complex, the Parque Miramar Shopping Centre, which houses over 160 shops, plus bars, restaurants, cinema and a children’s play park.

Apart from the general attractions of a tourist centre, Fuengirola offers a number of interesting venues such as the Roman baths at Torreblanca, the Arab castle of Solhail, the Outdoor Museum, exhibiting paintings by a variety of artists, the yacht harbour and club and two fantastic golf courses – Los Olivos and Los Lagos.

Eating out
You won’t go hungry in Fuengirola, the town has got an amazing restaurant choice, whatever your preference. Of course, there are some amazing Spanish restaurants, tapas bars and beachside restaurants that serve traditional Spanish cuisine, but there is also such a diversity of people living in Fuengirola, and the restaurant options reflect this: British, Scandinavian, German, Indian, Chinese, Italian, Moroccan, Lebanese, the choice is endless.

Festivals
The wonderful Fuengirola Feria (festival) takes place annually between the 6th and 10th of October, in honour of Our Lady, the Virgin of El Rosario, the Patron Saint of Fuengirola.

The town’s feria is one of the most important on the Andalusian feria calendar, and one of the most vibrant. The week long celebration makes it feel like the whole town is on holiday.

Climate
Fuengirola enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and warm winters. Cooling breezes from the sea make the summer heat manageable; temperatures average 32 ºC during the summer.

Very busy resort and working town giving you lots of choice. The tapas and wine bars in the square are very busy and enjoyable. There are lots of different bars and restaurants to suit every taste throughout the town. The biopark is well worth a visit. Good for short or long walks along the coast and a very good cheap train service for visiting nearby resorts of getting to the airport.

City review

Fuengirola is our favourite town on the Costa del Sol because it is a working town as well as a holiday resort and this gives much more feel of a Spanish town with tourists rather than a tourist resort. We had not stayed in the Los Boliches area before and found it particularly charming. Transport links are great - both train and bus and it is very easy to use one of the many outlets to arrange trips further afield ( we went to Cordoba this time).

Coast review

This area of the Costa del Sol has great beaches with all the facilities required such as showers and toilets on the beach; accessing the sea to swim is by a very gentle slope making it easy to get into the water. There are countless restaurants, bars and cafes making it very easy to choose exactly the type of food you want to eat on any given occasion.

Fabulous area on an efficient train link running from Malaga to Fuengirola which is reasonably priced. There are many places to visit with Los Boliches being our favourite. Visiting Montemar is a must. Malaga is an amazing city with everything you need. The harbour is beautiful and if you like shopping it has it all

Fuengirola has everything, great beaches, great restaurants - try Pata Rusa for good Spanish food (2nd street behind Hotel Yaramar). Lovely promenade to walk up and down. Excellent transport - get the train from Malaga airport. You can do as much or as little as you want to there. All in all a great place to stay.

We have been to Fuengirola many times and we love it. We do do either June or September which is probably slightly quieter than July and August but have never seen any trouble. The zoo is great and very unexpected in the middle of the town. If you want greate food with wonderful service try Don Pe in Fish alley - you aremade to feel as if you are a long lost friend and not just a paying customer. There is also a very good Indian Restaurant just past Obrien on the same side.

Coast review

We love it and can find nothing negative about it. Other people comment about the people selling handbags etc whilst you are having a drink or eating but that is part of the experience and most of them will move on when you say no.

Always a town we enjoy, this visit will make the fifth over a number of years. The long promenade and sea front is one of the main attractions for us. Fuengirola provides a good standard of shopping and restaurants. There could be an improvement to frequency of local bus services, but the train is excellent (Fuengirola - Malaga).

Crosswalks and pedestrians highly respected. Very narrow streets and at least 75% of the vehicles had scratches and/or dents. Parking places hard to find. Should you rent a car, a small one strongly recommended!!! Although there were many restaurants, we had problems in finding a nice one. (liked Bahia and Tipi Tapa)

A very pleasant and interesting place to visit, especially in October when is not quite as busy and hot. The price were reasonable and the locals were very friendly. I liked it a lot!

Coast review

Wonderful climate and a beautiful, well maintained beach. There are also many interesting places away from the town to visit an explore.

Very good for restaurants and outdoor attractions. There is a long and wide walkway along by the seashore, very pleasant in the evening. Pavements good for mobility scooters and wheelchairs as there are ramps on and off almost everywhere and most of city is flat. Beach is ok, sandy but rather monotonous (no rocks or trees for shade)

We love the Fuengirola/Los Boliches area as it is very flat and good to get around on a mobility scooter. Plenty of good restaurants, cafes and bars. Also plenty of lovely shops to browse.

Coast review

Nice area with plenty of activities for children, i.e. playparks, theme parks and the zoo. Also good for elderly as it is flat.

We really like Spain and whilst this is a holiday town with all the usual trappings of a busy costa holiday, you can find plenty of places to give your break that real Spanish feel and the added bonus is your Spanish will not need to be top drawer to make yourself understood, we will definitely be returning.

Coast review

This area probably still retains a somewhat bargain basement opinion of many, but we have always found it has so much more on offer if people are prepared to look. For instance did you know that within an hours drive inland their are some amazing places we really like the area around El Chorro, do a web search for the camino del rey awesome, and within this area some amazing mountain walks, lakes and a salt lake with Flamingos. For celebrations the Feria in Malaga at the end of August is simply good fun, all this and beautiful beaches and the weather fabulous

City review

We stayed a bit north from the town, and had a rented car we did excursions to the mountains (and Gibraltar, Nerja...). We stayed in Fuengirola only on two nights, so I cannot give decent evaluation. Anyhow, via taxi the whole coast is nearby, and via bus if you get the timetables! Oh, one thing springs to mind, a British expat came towards our table and I placed an order... He just said "OK, sir" and went to order our stuff... I only noticed when we were leaving he wasn't a waiter/butler but a guest. Well played, SIR.

Coast review

We arrived before the main tourist season but coast was clean, services just nicely (not too tightly packed) and people friendly, so nothing to complain !

I have travelled to this area many times before and I have yet to be disappointed. There are lots of lovely restaurants, supermarkets and pubs etc to visit. To get around and visit other areas the trains and buses are excellent.

Coast review

Stayed in Los Boliches which is the quieter part of Fuengirola. Would recommend this area for couples and adults with children. Beautiful beaches and great promenades to have a walk.

Torreblanca is just outside fuengirola but is a short drive or train journey into the centre. For our party who were on a stag do this was perfect as we were out of the centre during the day and could relax by the pool. then at night go to Fuengirola. thre are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from just ask around.

Coast review

very clean and great weather. Plenty to do. cant ask for anymore than that.

Some difficulties caused the fact that in many places the staff don`t speak English. Some taxis and in shops the staff was quite unfriendly, e.g. didn`t greet (say Hello/Hola, Thanks/Gracias); it`s weird. Fuengirola is visibly dirtier than e.g. Benalmadena or Marbella.
