By the beach
Fuengirola really makes the most of its location on the Med, with bars, restaurants and shops all along the promenade. The beaches run for kilometres, so you’re sure to grab a good spot. Plus, calm waters and gently shelving beaches mean much of the coastline is family-friendly.
Run for the hills
The 10th-century Castillo Sohail overlooks the town. Get a great view of what’s below by taking a tour of this Moorish fortress right up in the hills. A little further afield is miraculous Malaga, a city filled with art museums and a Roman amphitheatre.
Follow the sound of the bass
Fuengirola’s all about the tunes too. It hosts the annual festival, Marenostrum Fuengirola, for starters, which showcases loads of Spanish artists. In fact, the resort’s also seen other major international acts here in concert. JLo, Craig David… Yep, we’re looking at you.
