Travel Tips from people who've been to Fuengirola
Fuengirola is a major tourist resort on the Costa del Sol with large stretches of beach and a long Promenade stretching the entire length of the town. Fuengirola also boasts a Marina. As with most towns in Spain, there is not a lot of green zones, although this is being remedied and you can see qutie a few small park areas, statues and fountains dotted all over the town. There is a lovely old Castle built in the 10th century, although only the fortress remains and since 2000 has hosted festivals and concerts. Fuengirola Zoo is in tropical forest dwelling for its inhabitants. Fuengirola has a large foreign community that makes up about a quarter of its inhabitants and the restaurants and shops mirror this. In recent years some up-market shops, restaurants and bars have opened. El Corte Ingles, Iceland, Dunnes and Euromarket cater for foreign tastes, while the best bargains can be found at Danni, Plus & Lidl, with the mid range at Mercadona and Supersol. Excellent Restaurants are Aroma, Thailandia, El Sultan, Cypriot and numerous others. If you want to try some local tapas there are numerous places to choose from, however if you want to sample the old tapas style then head down to a little tapas bar by the arch of Avenida de Mijas by the Herbolista where you get free tapas with each drink (just like in the old days). Classy clubs are Lola, Dolce Vita and the recently renovated Old Town. If you want some salsa head down to Cuba Libre where on Wednesday nights they offer free lessons, Palacio Latino (Club 27) is great for late night salsa and often has professional dancers do a show. For a more English feel, head down to London Pub and Tramps with late night clubbing at Coyote Dance. There are many hotels available to travellers, however there are also many great deals on holiday apartment rentals that work out cheaper. Fuengirola is a short distance from the Hippodromo, Mijas Pueblo, Malaga and Marbella, making it all in all a great location to serve as a base to explore the rest of the Costa del Sol.
Resort town on the Costa del Sol. Good place to go for middle aged travelors looking for a bit of Spanish sun, sea and sangria. Hotels are quite good and loads of them. Bars and eating establisments on every street corner. Not far from Marbella and Mijas both worth a visit. If you want to travel a little fuurther to shop or sightsee west to Gibralta (2hrs) East to Malaga (1 hour).
Renting appartments in fuengirola for vacation is very affordable! and you can go around the whole city on foot. And there are some very good snacks on the shopping street, very cheap but also very delicious and they make this special dish of potatoes, along with sandwishs..
