Fuengirola is located midway between Torremolinos to the East and Marbella to the West and is popular with all types of holidaymakers as it provides such a wide range of accommodation.
The sandy beach in Fuengirola stretches for over 6 miles and you can try various watersports including windsurfing and volleyball.
As Fuengirola has a varied cosmopolitan clientele this is reflected in the variety of entertainment and restaurant choice, ranging from the Andalusian traditional tapas (bar snacks) and shellfish dishes to the fast food outlets.
You will find a wide selection of supermarkets and competitively priced shops.
There is the renowned Fuengirola weekly open air market on a Tuesday which is the largest on the coast plus a Saturday boot sale here with the predictably intriguing selection of items on sale.
There is certainly no shortage of things to do for holidaymakers in Fuengirola, ranging from such family fun activities as aqua park, a trip to the zoo and a host of sea sports to a leisurely sight seeing tour on a horse-drawn carriage, or by foot, particularly recommended for Fuengirola's neighbour, Los Boliches which still reflects the ambience of a bygone era with narrow streets, neighbourhood shops and traditional white washed houses which once belonged to the local fishermen.
