Located south and west of Torremolinos, FUENGIROLA is just a short drive away. Its eight kilometres of coast-line makes it an important tourist resort with nice beaches like Carvajal, Torreblanca del Sol, Los Boliches, La Gaviotes, Santa Amalia and El Castillo.
The beautiful promenade spans practically the entire coast-line of Fuengirola, from the area of Sohail Castle to Santa Fe de los Boliches.
One of the more attractive features of Fuengirola is its port. This is one of the most important suppliers of fresh fish to restaurants in the western area of the Costa del Sol.
Sohail Castle is Fuengirola's most important monument and was built in the 10th century.

Took the train to Fuengirola to go to the Saturday Flea Market. It was a beautiful sunny day.

Hans and I spent part of the afternoon and evening in Fuengirola with a special VT member who lives in Fuengirola. Eva (Diageva) met us at the train station, treated us to delicious churros and later in the evening, we were honoured to have dinner with her. Thank you for a lovely time and hope the next time the weather will be a little better.
Fuengirola boasts the biggest market on the coast on Tuesdays and a terrific flea market held every Saturday. Both are held at the "FERIA" or fairground which is located not far from the train station. There is also a third, smaller market held in the Port on Sundays.
- Pros:Lovely, diverse City with a wonderful Promenade
- Cons:It was very windy and cool, not nice for sightseeing.

After we were done going through the Flea Market, we were both a little hungary for a snack. On the way to the train... more travel advice
