Formerly a tiny fishing village, Fuengirola is now one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Costa del Sol. With more than 8km of sandy beaches, during summer months Fuengirola atrracts sunworshippers in their droves; however there is much more to the town than this.
Fuengirola is home to many up-market tapas bars and excellent restaurants benefiting from the fresh seafood courtesy of the adjacent Marina. The town is also a veritable shoppers' paradise, offering chic boutiques and beauty parlours alongside charming gift shops and curio stores. Watersports are highly featured in Fuengirola, and the Marina is a convenient spot for jetskiing, boat rides and fishing tours.
Some of the best nightspots in the Costa del Sol can also be found in Fuengirola, so whether you join the über-cool clubbing scene or prefer to relax and listen to live music, it can all be found in this lively town.
