Costa del Sol
Enjoy a Fuengirola villa holiday this year! Fuengirola is a buzzing seaside resort renowned for its 8 kilometres of fabulous coastline and sandy beaches. With a bustling promenade running the full length of the resort, there is a plethora of eateries to choose from and plenty of shops stocking those essential beach items. Head inland along the narrow winding streets towards the main square, Plaza de la Constitucion, and you’ll find designer clothes and Spanish boutiques. You’ll also be ideally located to explore the rest of the Costa del Sol, with the traditional Mijas town and the popular Marbella resort less than 30 minutes’ drive away.
For daily essentials for your Fuengirola villa there are many mini markets lining the promenade as well as lots of small shops selling beach wear and souvenirs. You’ll also find a number of large supermarkets on the outskirts of town, so you’ll be well equipped for any BBQ’s back at the villa.
The local market in Fuengirola is held on a Tuesday. One of the largest of its kind, you’ll find hundreds of stalls selling all sorts of goods from clothing and handbags to pottery, furniture, souvenirs and more. There is also a good range of handmade arts and crafts. Within the town itself there are also narrow streets full of small local shops offering a great selection of clothes, jewellery, shoes and leather wear.
On the outer road from Fuengirola, there's also the Miramar Shopping Centre where you'll find all the popular international brands and some local fare as well.
You’ll be spoilt for choice on Fuengirola villa holiday with a huge selection of bars and restaurants lining the seafront and dotted amongst the winding streets. All tastes will be catered for with both local and international menus available, from Spanish favourites to burgers and pizzas. Why not enjoy a glass of sangria and some delicious tapas with a sea view? There are also plenty of bars to choose from, with some offering late night music for those looking for a livelier affair.
There is no shortage of sandy beaches in Fuengirola with 8 kilometres of beautiful coastline. You’ll find plenty of sun loungers and parasols available to hire as well as some attractive little chiringuitos – beach bars – serving fresh food and cold drinks. There’s also a full range of water sports on offer, including scuba diving, water skiing, jet skis, parasailing and much more. Walk along the promenade and you’ll soon come to the marina, where you can organise trips on glass-bottomed boats and dolphin watching excursions.
Bioparc Fuengirola is much more than just a zoo and well worth a visit during your Fuengirola villa holiday! It’s a simulated tropical environment with flowing rivers and waterfalls offering a wonderful experience to see animals such as tigers, hippos, orangutans, crocodiles and more. You’ll also find a large play area and miniature farm to explore.
On the ring road around Fuengirola there is also a large water park called Parque Acuatico, providing fun for all the family.
There are plenty of theme parks in the area. Located right on the seafront next to the marina is Sould Park, a small amusement park ideal for younger children with rides, bouncy castles and trampolines. Or, head to Tivoli World, 20 minutes’ drive away. Part show, part amusement park, with more than forty rides to choose from.
Sohail Castle is a former Arabic fortress on the seafront at Fuengirola and is now a well known tourist attraction in the resort. As well as being an important monument, it also houses a remarkable open air auditorium and a small museum. The summer is a great time for a Fuengirola villa holiday - the castle hosts a programme of open-air concerts and festivals.
If you fancy a day out, both Marbella and Mijas can be easily reached by car. Mijas is a traditional, whitewashed Spanish village set high in the hills. You can wander around the cobbled streets, visit the boutiques and shops or enjoy an alfresco meal whilst admiring the stunning mountain backdrop. In contrast, the popular resort of Marbella is another cosmopolitan destination with plenty of chic bars and restaurants to choose from, up market boutiques to browse and wide boulevards overlooking the seafront.
You're spoilt for choice when it comes to golf courses in Costa del Sol. Your closest course is Mijas Golf, but you'll find lots more to choose from within easy driving distance.
