Where to Stay in Fuengirola – What You Need to Know
The city of Fuengirola is part of the Malaga province, located in Andalusia, Spain.
Although it does not gather the same number of tourists as other towns on the Costa del Sol such as Malaga or Torremolinos, Fuengirola is still a popular city for having attractions such as the Castillo Sohail , an ancient fortress that can be accessed for free, where events such as the Medieval Market are held.
Fuengirola also stands out for its beautiful beaches, resort-style hotels and tourist apartments with views of the Mediterranean, golf courses, tapas bars and attractions for the whole family such as the Bioparc, with many animal species.
When moving around Fuengirola, you have to know that it is a very pedestrian-friendly city, especially around the central area and the promenade. However, it also has buses to move between its neighbourhoods and commuter trains that connect with Torremolinos, Malaga, and the Malaga – Costa del Sol airport, the closest air terminal.
The city centre is the best area to stay in Fuengirola because it has the largest amount of accommodation in the city, as well as for its proximity to the main attractions and because it houses the train station (see accommodation in Fuengirola City Centre).
