With 8 kilometres of white-golden sand on your doorstep, holidays in Fuengirola are perfect for those looking to soak up some Spanish rays! Sitting between bustling Torremolinos and Marbella, the former fishing village of Fuengirola is now a Costa del Sol sell-out with beach bars, watersports and a fabulously friendly vibe. Its long, sandy beach and lively nightlife make it a popular spot for holidaymakers of all ages. There are grand beachfront hotels, self-catering apartments and large resorts to suit every budget and with beautiful weather from early spring even into November, this hotspot is a top pick for those wanting to escape the grey skies of home.
A magnet for families, the wide sandy beaches are the biggest attraction and most Fuengirola hotels are a stone's throw from the golden sands. The Costa del Sol's biggest and best waterparks and theme parks are also a short drive away and there are a variety of dolphin-spotting boat trips and day trips to neighbouring beaches leaving from the harbour if you fancy exploring a little further afield.
A short drive away is Ronda, a small town bustling with history and culture and offering magnificent vistas of the mountainside. While authentic, white-washed Spanish villages such as Mijas nestled in the mountains are also a big hit with visitors. For those who want to let their hair down, Fuengirola boasts a rocking strip of bars and clubs including Zafiro Wine & Gin bar and The London Pub and is well located for nights out in nearby Benalmadena and Torremolinos too. With so much to offer, Fuengirola holidays are a real treat for those looking for sun, sea, sand and sangria with some adventure thrown in too!
