Fuengirola is a beautiful city full of history, charm, character, life, and of course, sunshine. You should absolutely consider it as an option for your Spanish home if you are planning on moving to Spain.
Un Sol de Ciudad, Fuengirola’s motto, is a nod to both the beautiful sunshine the town gets year-round, and the warm welcome visitors can expect when they arrive. It is a well-known hub of long-term international residents and holidaymakers alike who love to call this beachside town home. Expect to find an abundance of international cuisines, multi-cultural events, and friendly expats here. English and other European languages are widely spoken.
Fuengirola’s beaches are in the heart of the city centre, making them easily accessible for those who love the beach. Despite their proximity to a cityscape, Fuengirola’s beaches are surprisingly clean and quiet. And with a long beach promenade dotted with cafes, restaurants, and shops, you have plenty of choice to enjoy a day at the beach here.
Fuengirola is a shopper’s paradise. From large international chains to local shops and Spanish handicrafts, you can find everything you could want and more. Fuengirola’s expansive outdoor markets are a great place to find locally-grown produce, artesian creations, and thrift finds, and the famous luxury shops of Puerto Banus are only a 30-minute drive away along the stunning Costa del Sol coastline.
In Fuengirola, you can find all the modern amenities you would expect from a large town alongside casual reminders of its ancient Phoenician, Roman, and Arab history. Visit the Sohail Castle (summer music festivals are regularly held here), discover elaborate monuments, statues, and fountains dotted throughout the town, explore Roman ruins, and walk the cobblestone streets of a charming old town without missing out on the creature comforts and facilities that a modern resort town provides.
Sunset is not the end of the day for Fuengirola. With a lively nightlife and bar scene that caters more for the 30+ age group, you won’t have to fight obnoxious teenagers to get served generous pours of Spanish wines, ice-cold beers, and well-crafted cocktails in the warm Spanish air and well into the early hours of the morning.
Located between Malaga airport and Marbella, Fuengirola is uniquely positioned to enjoy everything the Costa del Sol and beyond has to offer. Bioparc Fuengirola is a beautiful zoo within the town itself, while Benalmadena and all its attractions are a only short drive away, as are Mijas, Torremolinos, Malaga, Marbella, and Estepona. A day trip to Ronda, Gibraltar, and an array of classic whitewashed Andalusian villages are all easily done from your home in Fuengirola, too. The whole of the Costa del Sol is on your doorstep.
Space is a minor luxury in Fuengirola town, reflected in the number of smaller but beautifully-appointed apartments, rather than houses, for sale within the city limits. Larger townhouses, villas, and fincas can be found just minutes away and within easy walking and driving distance to Fuengirola though, so if Fuengirola is where you want to be, finding your dream home, no matter what that is, is an easy option.
