The good, the bad and the ugly
Pack your best boots and throw in a waistcoat, on a holiday in Fuengirola you can have a chance to do your best Clint Eastwood impression and fulfill your childhood cowboy dreams. Andalucia is renowned for its magnificent horses but in Fuengirola both beginners and pros can saddle up and have a go. Rancho el Rengo is popular with both professionals and novices, offering lessons for those trying for the first time and paddocks for those who have been riding for years. The ranch also has a fantastic restaurant so you can enjoy some well-deserved grub after a day with the horses.
Setting the trend whilst on holiday in Fuengirola
The town of Fuengirola itself is really interesting. What once began as a tiny fishing village has since developed into a cosmopolitan centre that is busy, affluent and modern. Fuengirola has become increasingly popular with the up-market holidaymakers as its streets are lined with independent boutiques and classy cocktail bars. The central plaza has kept its original charm and the whole town feels both authentic and up-to-date, vintage and trendy. Look one way and you can admire preserved Roman ruins, look the other way and you can have your haircut by some of the best hairdressers in Costa del Sol. These juxtapositions of new and old make holidays to Fuengirola a truly unique experience.
Sun, sea and sand and more sand
With over seven kilometres of beach to choose from, sun seekers won’t struggle to find their spot in the sand. The clear waters are perfect for swimmers and snorkelers and there is a great range of water sports on offer along the whole coastline. Inevitably the promenade is dotted with fast food chains but amongst the corporate takeover there are some hidden gems. Grab a drink at one of the chiringuitos, beach bars, and sample a few of the tapas dishes. Torreblanca Beach is at the far end of Fuengirola but offers a bit of peace and quiet away from the main resorts. Las Gaviotas has some amazing bars and restaurants while Los Boliches has received a number of Blue Flag awards over time.
