This is a very lively place in the summer. There are plenty of beaches for everyone, and a fairly long promenade, with many bars, cafes and shops.
Great for families with children. The night time comes alive, with a range of entertainment. Just on the outskirts is a brilliant shopping centre, with something for everyone. Fuengirola can also be used as a base to visit the many sights along the Costa del Sol.
It's a nice little city, close to the coast, with great beaches and lots of entertainment. Nice shopping area, and plenty of possibilities for food and drinks.
If you like to be served for cheap, then visit the local bars and restaurants owned by real Spanjards, the prices are way down in comparison to the prices of tourist places. Have fun, enjoy your stay !
Fuengirola is standard for the Costa del Sol. It's got fairly good restaurants, a big stretch of beach, and lots of retirees walking about with their shirts off.
