Fuengirola is probably most famous for its five miles of
Sandy beaches, flanked by hotels and residential blocks of
apartments with magnificent views of the Mediterranean and
its sweeping coastline. A recent landscaping drive by the
local municipality has resulted in a wider promenade and plenty
of palm trees, interspersed with colourful flowerbeds and
additional seating. The beaches known as Boliches, Gaviotas
and Torreblanca hold a European blue flag.
Fuengirola is particularly popular with Spanish nationals,
many of whom own summer apartments here. There are also
a considerable percentage of British and other nationalities
with the result being an impressively wide variety of entertainment
and restaurant choice.
Every Tuesday you will find the largest and liveliest street
market on the coast. There is certainly no shortage of things
to do in Fuengirola, ranging from such family fun activities
as the aqua park, a trip to the zoo and a host of sea sports.
A leisurely sight seeing tour on a horse-drawn carriage,
or a short stroll by foot, will take you to Los Boliches,
which still reflects the ambience of a bygone era with narrow
streets, shops and traditional white washed houses which
once belonged to the local fishermen.
Fuengirola is often visited by residents from the surrounding
areas for its array of shops and brand new state of the
art, Shopping Mall.
