Only 25km from Malaga International Airport is the town of Fuengirola – one of the most popular destinations on the Costa del Sol.  Easily accessible by road, rail or bus, it is not difficult to see why this buzzing cosmopolitan town on the Mediterranean is the number one choice for so many. 

Fuengirola sits on a narrow strip of coastline covering 8 kilometers which has a succession of some of the best beaches on the Costa del Sol. Los Boliches, Fuengirola, TorreblancaLas Gaviotas…well-cared for stretches of sand backed by a long and busy promenade where you’ll find residential complexes, hotels, restaurants and other services so you can enjoy the sun and sea in comfort.

The main square, Plaza de la Constitución (19th century), where the Church of Nuestra Señora del Rosario stands, has been re-designed but still retains its unique enchantment. A walk down the narrow, pedestrian streets leading off the main square is a voyage of discovery for the many visitors, who come across some of the hidden secrets and delightful corners of this friendly, Andalucian town.

On top of a nearby hill, located next to the mouth of the river Fuengirola, stands the Castle of Sohail, ordered to be built by Abd-al-Rahman III in the 10th century and which still preserves some paintings of its walls. Next to this parade ground, the remains of the old Phoenician settlement have been found, which was the origin of the town (6th-3rd centuries BC). Testimony of the city’s importance in the past is the Roman city of Suel, located on the hillside of the castle.


Fuengirola is filled with little boutiques, shopping centers and designer shops. The Miramar shopping center is very popular with many high street shops like Primark, Pull & Bear, Zara, H&M, Mango etc.

Every Tuesday, Fuengirola organizes the biggest and busiest street market and on Saturdays there is a big boot sale where you can buy anything from a new pet to valuable antiques.
