Fuengirola is one of the largest tourist resorts in Spain, and is a popular destination for those wanting to soak up the sun and have a bit of fun. Sitting between Malaga and Marbella this busy resort is home to one of the best seafronts on the Costa del Sol.
There is something for everyone, which is one of the reasons why a large number of Brits flock to this location on an annual basis.
Fuengirola experiences the Costa del Sol’s subtropical Mediterranean climate which gives it long and hot summers, perfect for those seeking out the sun. In the peak of summer, July and August, temperatures can rise to around 30° with guaranteed sunshine for around 11 hours a day. Temperatures do not drop that much going into the nighttime, with it being around 20° during the summer.
The climate also means that the winter months can remain warm, with temperatures soaring into the low twenties with sunshine. As the winter months are not a peak time, tourists can enjoy cheap Fuengirola holidays all year round and still experience a pleasantly warm and sunny visit.
The bustling promenade which fringes the beach leads to a 7k stretch of safe golden sands making it one of the longest beaches in the area, also offering a great choice of water sports making for a fun-packed day out.
Fuengirola is a vibrant city with something to suit everyone. One such attraction that is great for the whole family is the zoo, Bioparc Fuengirola. It has been known as the Bioparc since 2010 but has been open for many years before this. It specialises in captive breeding for endangered species of many types of animal as well as offering a “tropical forest” education, making it a must-see for those wanting to learn something whilst admiring some of nature’s finest sights.
Another of the city’s attractions is the Roman ruins in the Torreblanca part of Los Boliches, where the remains of the Roman Empire’s occupation on the city lay open for visitors to explore.
With the city located on the Mediterranean Sea, local people enjoy a diet consisting of seafood, meaning that a lot of restaurants in the city are themed around this; you only need to take a walk up Fish Alley to find this out. However, if fish isn’t for you, there are many other restaurants that offer a taste of Spain with Crepes ‘n’ Tapas Bar and El Rio being favourites amongst tourists.
The nightlife in Fuengirola is one of the best in the Costa del Sol; this is not really that surprising considering it is one of the biggest tourist spots in the area. There are many different and lively locations to choose from and there is a bar and club that is perfect for each type of partygoer. Get your night started with a few drinks in bars such as Jackson’s and Lola’s before heading onto the main party at Mai Tai and Karbon Klub.
