By the beach
Fuengirola really makes the most of its location on the Med, with bars, restaurants and shops all along the seaside promenade. The beaches run for kilometres, so you’re sure to grab a good spot. Plus, calm waters and gently shelving beaches mean the whole stretch of 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 Málaga, a city filled with art museums, botanical gardens and a Roman amphitheatre.
