Fuengirola’s beautiful Costa del Sol location is a beach paradise, with kilometres of smooth, golden sand curved around the coast. Pick a different beach every day and stroll along the sunny boardwalk that connects them, right the way up to the marina. The marina is the place to go for a relaxing boat excursion along the coast. It’s well worth the walk up to see the town’s landmark, Sohail Castle, perched on a hillside with fantastic views across the whole town. Fuengirola holidays have great nightlife, with a tempting array of waterfront bars, big clubs, tapas bars and pubs to spend the warm evenings in.

Fuengirola’s magnificent golden coastline reaches for nearly eight kilometres. It is divided into several Blue Flag beaches that include the popular central Las Gaviotas and the smaller, peaceful San Francisco Beach. Complete with powdery soft white sand that melts into the clear Mediterranean shore, the coast is paradise for beach lovers and has all mod cons, including sun loungers and umbrellas. Running along the back of the beaches is the Paseo Maritimo Rey de Espana, the palm-lined promenade filled with seafood restaurants and shops. The best place in Fuengirola for water sports is Los Boliches, where you can surf, hire a pedal boat or play a game of beach volleyball.

Fuengirola began life as a fishing village, and its bustling port remains an important part of the town. Today, it stands beside a modern marina, which has lots of opportunities for boat excursions where you can learn to sail or go dolphin spotting. Beyond the beach, you’ll find remnants of the town’s past, with the old town centre retaining a traditional feel with busy fish and produce markets nearby. One of the biggest attractions in Fuengirola is the spectacular Sohail Castle, a 19th century fortress on a hill overlooking the town and coast. It takes a brisk climb to get up there, but the views are worth it.

Fuengirola’s thriving nightlife has a great mix of styles, with venues catering to the clubbing crowd, Spanish-style nights out and relaxed post-dinner drinks. The seafront promenade and marina have great bars, pubs and some big clubs open until 7am. If you’re seeking a traditional Spanish night out, the best place in Fuengirola is the town’s central square, which has a buzzing cosmopolitan feel after dark, when the terrace bars and tapas restaurants fill up and spill out into the square. Make sure you visit some Mediterranean and seafood restaurants on the marina for some tasty local fare.

For the best beach weather, book your holiday in summer or early autumn when you can enjoy highs of 29 and up to 14 hours of sunshine a day, or experience a more peaceful holiday during the mild winter season.

The fun of the fair: Spain is big on town fairs, and Fuengirola hosts its own in October. Feria de Fuengirola consists of a week of kids’ funfair rides, activities and stalls, with lots of food, drink and live music. Traditionally, locals drink sherry and dress up in colourful flamenco costumes. The fair closes with a big party and firework display.

Beer festival: In August, Fuengirola goes all Bavarian. The town’s beautiful Moorish castle, Sohail, becomes the venue for Bierfest, a 10 day beer festival featuring German specialties and the best beer from around the world.
