Fuengirola

Lively, popular and always buzzing - the resort of Fuengirola has come a long way from its days as a simple Spanish fishing village.

Today it's a fascinating mix of local Spanish residents and international visitors, many of whom have made their permanent home in the urbanization housing complexes that stretch up into the hills.

Lying to the east of Marbella, and just a twenty minute drive from Malaga Airport, Fuengirola is a bustling town during the height of the tourist season.

The area is full of bars and nightclubs and an impressive array of restaurants offering something to suit all tastes. There is also the brand new shopping centre housing everything from clothes and electrical goods to furniture shops and designer shoes, plus it´s very own multi complex cinema.

The castle, which has become the town's symbol, is situated outside the town on a hill and commands an impressive view over Fuengirola and the sea. Although the castle may be the town's symbol it is probably better known for its beaches.

Fuengirola's amazing beach is overlooked by one of the longest promenades in the Mediterranean and takes just a little over 2hrs to walk from one end to the other.

From the walkways gently swaying palm trees it's only a short stroll to one of the resort's oldest areas, the Santa Fe quarter where fishermen once worked and lived. Today this is an attractive alternative to Fuengirola's modern face, a maze of white washed buildings and narrow streets, where the restaurants are some of the best in town. Try some of those surrounding the Plaza de la Constitucion or the Calle Moncayo and soak in the atmosphere.

For the kids, there's literally tons of watery fun on offer at the spectacular Parque Aquatico Mijas Water Park - easy to reach from Fuengirola bus station via a 10 minute shuttle bus service. Open daily from May-September. Parklandia at Puerto Deportivo, Paseo Maritimo means you can stay on dry land while the kids take their pick from countless swings, slides and frames. There's even a bouncy castle for bouncy kids and mini-karting for budding racing drivers!

Fuengirola has become a popular tourist destination, but also a popular home for those looking to leave the UK and make a new life, and it´s not difficult to see why. The town blends village life, culture and history with tourism, a bustling shopping centre and many attractions.

For anyone thinking of starting a business, this could be the perfect place to settle!
