    Tourist Information

    Favorite thing: One of the first stops you should make in Fuengirola is to the TOURIST INFORMATION. As we had our very own guide, Eva (Diageva) to show us around, we did not need their services. But I'm sure you will find what you need to know and what you want to see and do while in Fuengirola.
    Located near the train station.

    RICH IN HISTORY

    by LoriPori Written May 10, 2005

    Lori Pori

    Favorite thing: Like many Andalusian towns, Fuengirola is very RICH IN HISTORY, having at times been occupied by the Romans, Phoenicians and the Moors. Evidence of this history can still be seen in many parts of the town and surrounding area.
    One notable monument is Sohail Castle at the western end of the town. The Castle and its surrounding gardens have recently been refurbished and it makes for a pleasant visit.
    Sorry as we did not get the chance to visit Sohail Castle, I do not have a photo of it, so I substituted it for a very cute pic of me -- LoriPori.

    THE MARINA

    The Marina

    Favorite thing: Fuengirola offers one of the best MARINAS of the Mediterranean. Situated right on the Fuengirola Promenade, it shares the enclosure with the Fishing Port and offers comfortable terraces, a large selection of restaurants and each Sunday, an outdoor market.
    The Marina area offers cruises to see dolphins, water sports and sea fishing.

    OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY

    by LoriPori Written May 10, 2005

    Our Lady of the Rosary

    Favorite thing: Fuengirola was one of the original towns along the coast and existed well before tourism became popular. The evidence of this still exists in the town centre "Plaza de la Constitucion" with its narrow streets and lovely church "Ntra Sra del Rosario" OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY. It is a simple, yet beautiful white church, which dominated the square. All around it was a hub of activity as locals and tourists alike went about their business.

    PUERTO DE FUENGIROLA

    by LoriPori Written May 9, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Puerto de Fuengirola

    Favorite thing: One of the more attractive features of Fuengirola is its port PUERTO DE FUENGIROLA. This is one of the most important suppliers of fresh fish to restaurants in the western area of the Costa Del Sol. The cuisine in Fuengirola is characteristic of the gastronomy of the coast of Malaga province. Some of the seafood delicacies available here include anchovies, red mullet, squid, etc.

    PLAZA DE LA CONSTITUCION

    by LoriPori Written May 9, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Plaza de La Constitucion

    Favorite thing: The centre of Fuengirola is conserved in its layout, in the structure of its streets, squares, gardens and houses -- a typical Andalusian town. Short narrow streets with shops, bars, banks and restaurants branch out from the PLAZA DE LA CONSTITUCION.

    PLAYAS (BEACHES) OF FUENGIROLA

    by LoriPori Written May 9, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Playa De Los Boliches

    Favorite thing: Fuengirola is one of the smallest municipalities in the Malaga province, but this has not prevented its eight kilometres of coastline from making it an important tourist resort with nice beaches like Carvajal, Torreblanca del Sol, Los Boliches (pictured here), La Gaviotas, Santa Amalia and El Castillo.
    As we were in Fuengirola in March 2001 and February 2004, neither time was the weather exactly suitable for the beach. In the summer the beaches are packed with tourists.

    A place to relax and eat good food

    by zumodemango Written Jun 15, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Favorite thing in Fuengirola is, of course, a mixture of diverse things, like beach, sun, light. The combination of all make it very nice and good.

    Fondest memory: Because i live in Madrid and i miss the beach, it's, of course, to toast in the beach for hours without doing asnything(reading as much) and swim like a fish in the water.
    Of course, being with eva, a very good host and guide, explaining details when is "required", and listen to her stories!

    Virgen del Carmen

    Favorite thing: In Fuengirola and other Cities in Spain, a statue of the Virgen del Carmen is taken out to sea in a world famous Marine procession on July 16th, for a blessing of the waters, the virgen Carmen is the protector of the seaman/fishermen.
    This event should be some thing wonderful to see.

    Plaza de San Rafael
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: This is as far as I walked , I came from the Bus station then I went to the Marina and I strolled along the promenade to the Playa de Los Boliches ,past the Virgen del Camen
    statue and then ended up here at the Plaza de San Rafael , and then back through the business street , a very busy and narrow business street , back to the centre of Fuengirola where the busstation and the train station's are located , located.
    Very close to each other just a few minutes walking.

    Fondest memory: Well Fuengirola was nice ,but it is a busy place and it seems to have outgrown itself .
    But it is very enjoyable and fantastic place to walk & walk & walk. Enjoy it if you go there.

    Fuengirola has a fantastic Esplenada.

    by Waalewiener Updated Mar 10, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Esplenade de Fuengirola

    Favorite thing: Promenade, Esplenade ,Walkway , just some of the names for the fantastic and beautiful walkways that are along the beaches of Fuengirola I believe that there is a stretch of 8 Km of walkway from one end of Fuengirola to the other end ,and I sure walked at least 8 Km the day I went there by myself. Spain is so great with their places to walk and sit on the benches ,they become a real meeting place for the people
    Sunday is the traditional day when the Spanish people walk the Esplenadas.
    It really is something you must see for yourself

    Fondest memory: Walking and people watching , and more walking and eating some Tappas,or Churros etc then some more walking.
