The Costa del Sol gathers a great number of top quality beaches, being one of the most well-known and frequented areas of the Spanish coast. Fuengirola, in the province of Malaga, has a total of seven beaches, most of them semi-urban.
Fuengirola, also known as the white villa of Malaga, is one of most well-known spots amongst the sun & beach tourists in Spain, not only for it’s variety and length, but also for its quality, as what most distinguishes the beaches of Fuengirola from the rest is a thorough maintenance on its sand throughout the 365 days a year. Some of the most recommended beaches in Fuengirola are: the Ejido-Castillo beach, the Fuengirola beach and the Los Boliches beach. The first one mentioned, the Ejido-Castillo, with almost a thousand meters of fine sand and crystal clear water, is situated in an incomparable natural environment where we can also witness interesting historical monuments like the Sohail Castle. The Fuengirola beach, which is rather more urban, stands out due to to its enormous influx of tourists and its seafront promenade, packed with restaurants, bars and ‘chiringuitos’ (beach bars) where you can enjoy a cold beer and a delicious tapa. Lastly, there’s the beach of Los Boliches, with well equipped areas to practice many sports. All these beaches offer top quality services, the access to all of them are very handy, and both the sand and the water stand out for being one of the cleanest throughout the Andalusian coast.
