Fuengirola Holidays

Show on Map

Long sandy beaches and a wide-open promenade make Fuengirola a family-friendly spot on the Costa del Sol.

Bars and restaurants on the beach

Fuengirola really makes the most of its spot on the Med, with bars, restaurants and shops all along the seaside promenade. The beaches run for 8 kilometres, so you’re sure to grab a good spot. Plus, calm waters and gently shelving beaches mean the whole stretch of coastline is great for families, too.

A castle on the hill

The 10th-century Castillo Sohail overlooks the town – get a great view of the town by taking a tour of this Moorish fortress. A little further afield is the city of Malaga, where highlights include the Picasso museum, botanical gardens and Roman amphitheatre.

Insider Tip

The Castillo Sohail occasionally plays host to festivals and shows. It’s an incredible venue, so check at your hotel if there’s anything on while you’re in town.

Best beaches

Try out a different beach every day of the week with 8km of sand running past the town. Los Gaviotas is the most central and it’s big with families thanks to children’s play areas, showers and restaurants nearby. Head to Los Boliches for watersports, or try out the smaller San Francisco beach for a quiet day on the sand.

Top sights

See a bit of Costa del Sol’s history by visiting the 10th-century Castillo Sohail. The Moorish fortress was built as a lookout, and it’s still got the best views of the Med down below. The Romans once ruled here as well – explore excavated ruins in the centre of town at the Yacimiento Romano de la Finca del Secretario.

Out and about

Explore the surrounding hills on horseback, or take your trusty horse for a gentler walk along the sandy beaches. Play a round of mini-golf by the beach, or dive head first into the water at the scuba diving centre. See some beautiful Andalusian countryside on a 4x4 tour or under your own steam on a guided mountain bike ride.

Eating and drinking

Head to the Los Boliches area for a range of cuisines. Try fried fish and grilled meats at El Guaje, or get a taste of Mexico at El Paso. Here you’ll also find romantic La Langosta, where just-caught lobster tops the menu. There’s another cluster of restaurants in the Santa Amalia area, including authentic Spanish place Palangreros.


Get some shopping in while you’re here at Parque Miramar. There are big high-street names here like H&M, Primark, Mango and Zara. Pick up gorgeous jewellery and watches at Joyería Armaan (or just enjoy a bit of window-shopping).


Spend a lovely evening along the beach promenade, with family-friendly bars and pubs lining the way. The walking path also plays host to outdoor shows from time to time. Stay out later at one of the livelier bars like the Bogart Café or Dry Martini. Party till dawn at Karbon Klub, one of the biggest clubs in the Costa del Sol.
