La Sierrezuela is one of the most attractive residential areas in Mijas. Situated 4 kilometres from Fuengirola centre, because of their popularity, La Sierrezuela and Fuengirola have in recent years grown together into one. Here you will find a majority of villas with private pools and gardens and because the area is on a hill, most properties have spectacular views of both the Mediterranean Sea and the Mijas Mountains.
Fuengirola, with its near 70,000 inhabitants is the centre of many of the Expat communities on the Costa del Sol. The train from Malaga, by way of the airport, has its last stop here. There are many reasons why so many of our clients prefer Fuengirola. You don´t need a car, several international schools, churches, associations are located in Fuengirola. Many of the businesses in the area are owned by foreigners and the majority of shops have English speaking staff. However, apart from the expat communities, Fuengirola is a Spanish town with a pulsating everyday life that keeps the city moving also in the winter. The town is located only 20 minutes´ drive from Malaga airport and it has the longest and most beautiful beach promenade on the coast. 8 km with generous cycle and pedestrian lanes are lined with 100s of restaurants and bars. Just outside Fuengirola is Mijas Golf with two 18-hole golf courses.

Striking the right balance between expat convenience and Spanish authenticity, Fuengirola delivers an intriguing melting pot of cultures, where it is not uncommon to see British, Irish, Nordic and German inhabitants mingling with the local Spanish population, creating a cultural cocktail that is almost unique on the Coast.
While fast-food cafés are highly visible, their numbers are more than matched by traditional tapas bars, classic chiringuitos, inviting Irish pubs and a fair collection of Scandinavian bars and eateries.
A look inside any one of the aforementioned establishments will also surprise – the clientele is equally diverse and eclectic, with both holidaymakers and locals at ease with one another, lending the entire town a warmth that is unusual for such an ostensibly transient destination.
Easily accessible, bathed in beautiful sunshine for pretty much 10 months of the year, affordable and lively, Fuengirola's unassuming reputation belies its undeniable charm. While Marbella is perhaps easier on the eye and Puerto Banús has a more glamorous nightlife, Fuengirola's everyman appeal is its main strength.
Nowhere is too exclusive or financially prohibitive, the streets are clean, the people are friendly, and the commercial and cultural variety on offer is as good as anywhere else on the Costa del Sol. Add a lengthy beach, a wide promenade and some exceptionally well-priced properties, and you have the ingredients for a pretty fine place in the sun.
Day-Time Pursuits and Evening Pleasures
In Fuengirola, there is much more on offer than just beach and bars, particularly for younger members of the family. The Biopark zoo is a brilliant example of clever design in a tight space.
Surrounded by residential apartments, the zoo provides a home for a wide selection of species, does some sterling conservation work and is a wonderfully distracting day out for all the family.
Mijas Aquapark (on the town outskirts) is another attraction that offers great fun for all the family. It is open from early June until late September, but try to avoid the weekends at the height of summer. The park has plenty of slides, pools, jacuzzis, and bathing and shaded areas for all ages.
Along the promenade, Fuengirola exhibits a decidedly tourist atmosphere. This vast stretch is dotted with gift shops selling trinkets, beach equipment, sun lotions, magazines, newspapers and ice creams, alongside bars and cafés ranging from pizza parlours and all-day-breakfast establishments to bistros, a la carte restaurants and chiringuitos specialising in the freshest fish and seafood.
At the western end of the beach is the imposing Sohail Castle, which affords some lovely views over the surrounding bay, and is the venue for summer concerts by top Spanish and international artists; while, slightly inland, is Miramar Shopping Centre – a huge mall with a cinema screening original-version films.
For a more traditional slice of the town, Fuengirola's Los Boliches area, built around the old fishing port, offers a laidback atmosphere augmented by narrow streets, traditional dining mesons and quaint cottages. In May, Fuengirola hosts its famous Feria Internacional de los Pueblos, actively inviting nations from all over the world to promote their own cultures.
There is no central hub of nightlife activity in Fuengirola. Instead, the resort's organic growth has created a steady offering of late-night venues spread throughout the town. While the cafés, bars and eateries along the promenade are always busy during the summer months, their combined efforts do not quite constitute a “strip” of bars and clubs to match those found in Puerto Banús or Benalmádena.
Instead, Fuengirola is more like Marbella in the sense that there is plenty of choice – spread out.
Aside from the clubs and pubs, a night out in Fuengirola could constitute a moonlit stroll around the grounds of the castle, a movie at the Miramar Cinema, a languid meal at one of the many superb tapas establishments, or a few glasses of wine on the bustling Constitution Square.
