Fuengirola Car Hire
Fuengirola is a large thriving town in the Malaga province on the Costa del Sol. The town is an extremely popular and established tourist resort and the population swells during the summer months as thousands of tourists flock to the pretty seaside community.
Fuengirola is very accessible along the Costa del Sol and is located just 25km from Malaga Airport and therefore is but a short journey once you have arrived in Spain making it all the more popular. As Fuengirola has a long tradition of tourism the town is well equipped with a wide range of services and facilities aimed at keeping you entertained for your whole holiday.
Over the 8km of beaches in Fuengirola there is an endless supply of beachside restaurants and bars that become alive in the evening as well as shops selling just about anything and everything you would need for your holiday and a walk along the sea front would keep you busy for hours. There are also many hotels along the front with fantastic views out across the Mediterranean.
Life in Fuengirola is not limited to the beach front however and the buzzing urban centre also offers lots to do. 25% of the population of Fuengirola is made up of mainly other European nationalities, mainly British and so there is also more than enough need for a strong infrastructure to cater for their needs so you can find lots of shops selling English products as well as many language schools offering tuition in Spanish to aid integration.
For afternoons out, visit Fuengirola Zoo, a zoo that at the end of 2007 had over 2000 animals across almost 200 species. Fuengirola Zoo is actively involved in breeding programmes for endangered species and many animals born to endangered species at the zoo are shipped to zoos across the world to aid breeding in other areas. During the months of July and August the zoo is open until midnight for night time visits as well as dinner in the zoo, a truly unique experience.
The Mijas Aquapark is also only around 5 minutes walk from the centre of Fuengirola is open between May and October and with all the water slides you would expect from a water park as well as wave pool and mini golf is also another fun day out for all the family.
The Fuengirola street market in Los Boliches, fairground attractions along the beach, the main El Corte Ingles department store, the huge Miramar shopping centre complete with cinema complex and every high street shop you can think of including jewellers, beauty stores selling Elemis beauty products and more, will all ensure that you are never bored in Fuengirola.
For a more relaxing day out, take a stroll down to the port. Originally a traditional fishing village, Fuengirola stays true to its roots and there are many boats within the harbour that still take visitors out fishing every day. You will also find many tour operators offering day trips out whale and dolphin watching as well as boat trips up the coast to Benalmadena.
As a compact town with many public car parks Fuengirola is easy to get around by car and using Fuengirola car hire also allows you to make the most of this stretch of the coast by visiting nearby Benalmadena, Torremolinos and Marbella.
For day trips out in the car that take you a little further, why not visit some of the more traditional Spanish villages such as Antequera where you will also find the El Chorro lakes. 3 magnificent blue man-made lakes surrounded by tall green trees make this a perfect family day out. Reminiscent of the view from the window of Cumbrian cottages, this is Spain's very own Lake District in the middle of the Spanish countryside and a worthwhile day trip out.
Fuengirola is not only a tourist destination but a thriving business centre too, and with local firms offering anything from marketing products such as Costa del Sol printers that can provide you with business cards and internet marketing specialists, it is also easy enough to believe you too could also easily set up your new business here.
