What to do in Fuengirola

Bearing in mind that you are in Andalusia, and more specifically in Malaga, the weather is usually pleasant year-round. That means that the beach will always be a good choice, whether for a relaxing walk in January while listening to the sea waves or for a dip in the middle of June.  

What's more, the Paseo Marítimo de Fuengirola is one of the liveliest promenades you will come across, both in winter and summer. It is the ideal place for nightlife, on account of the number of bars and pubs it plays host to. What Malaga and its towns are particularly famous for is food. Does the term "espeto" sound familiar? You can't leave Fuengirola without trying a delicious espeto, or fish skewer. And if you have already tried one, you can't leave without having another!
