Once merely just a fishing village, Fuengirola is now one of the biggest players on the famous Costa del Sol. The town, which is sandwiched between Marbella and Torremolinos, has a full range of hotels, tourist-friendly eateries, buzzing bars and all the chic boutiques you would expect from a top resort, as well as a super-sized sandy beach.
In Fuengirola itself, you have Sohail Castle, a structure built in AD 956 to provide strength to the coastal defences. This landmark provides visitors with some great views. Elsewhere, one of the must-see sights in nearby Granada (a two-hour drive away) is Alhambra Palace, a vast 14th century Moorish citadel and architectural delight boasting latticed ceilings and columns.
Fuengirola is certainly blessed when it comes to beaches. It has eight different stretches of sand, spanning eight kilometres. So whether you prefer to lounge all day and catch the rays or get involved with the watersports on offer (such as diving down to the corals off Torreblanca Beach), there is something here for all holidaymakers. Mini restaurants in the form of chiringuitos line the beaches to ensure you are well catered for.
This town also embraces its after-dark entertainment, as there is an energetic collection of pubs, tapas bars and bodegas that keep up the true Costa spirit.
With its typically Mediterranean climate, you can rely on Fuengirola to provide plenty of sun during the hotter summer months (July and August). From May onwards, you can expect highs in the mid-20s and so this really is a destination where you are almost guaranteed great weather.
The town is just 25 kilometres away from Malaga Airport with numerous car rental agents and other transport options ready and available to take you to your holiday destination.
Fuengirola is certainly well equipped when it comes to holiday accommodation. Here at Panoramic Villas we can provide a fine array of holiday apartments and villas for parties of all sizes.
