Holidays in Fuengirola
We spent two weeks in this beach, and everything was perfect – we found the ideal house for a family of 9 (!) close to the beach at a reasonable price, the weather and the sea were always good, even in high tides, shopping was easy, and we didn’t feel the absence of many attractions.
That could be the weak point, but it was not our program, and there’s still something to say about the city in this page.
Plaza de España
Plaza de la Constitution
Monument to La Peseta
Virgen de lo Rosario church
San Rafael statue
Monument to Mankind
Taberna Chinorros (closed)
We had a lot of trouble choosing a restaurant suitable for a large group with children. With all the esplanades full of people, the solution was to go inside, with lots of space despite the air-conditioned. We decided to have tapas, and ordered a large variety with everyone having a bite in everything.
It was a funny dinner, with good surprises and a very reasonable price. It was far from “home”, and we couldn’t repeat the experience.

We took away
We never ate in this restaurant, but used it a couple of times to take food to eat at home. The food was good, well served and packed, with a wise solution to identify the different types of curry, wok, or whatever. The prices were normal, and the service, not too fast, was gentle.

If it weren’t the children
Searching for the right restaurant, this space strongly “invited” us, with small restaurants providing a wide choice, from gourmet to the simple local food. We were with children, and installing them in a so crowded place was not possible, so we moved elsewhere, but my eyes stayed there. That is a place where I really would like to eat!
Maybe next time in Fuengirola…

Our best meal in Fuengirola was in this restaurant – excellent meat, fresh fish, good preparation and presentation.
Of course, it was also the most expensive, but not too much, and the quality justified the difference.
Address: Paseo Marítimo Rey de España, 4, Fuengirola
This was the only “chiringuito” in the beach that we tried this time. It serves the usual food, with fish dominating the menu, at the usual prices. Nothing remarkable, but we were nine without complaints. The only distinctive detail was to see the sardines that we ordered as starter grilling facing us across the window.

It announces itself as “Indian-Texmex-Italian” but we only found and tried the first and last types of cuisine. They were both good, specially the Indian food, spiced according to the preferences of each customer. The service was efficient and nice, good presentation and the average price.
Favorite Dish: Chicken Tikka Masala

In our first night in Fuengirola, strolling in Paseo Maritim. we were approached by a girl with a leaflet announcing extremely low prices in this restaurant. A few days later, wanting a light dinner, we remembered the leaflet, and went there. The menu was short, matching half of the pictures of a placard in the facing walkway, but everybody (we were 8) found something satisfactory. The good surprise was the service – according to the promoted prices we expected small dishes, but they all came very well served, and the food was tasty. At the end, the overall price was… the normal for that standard.
With a large family, demanding accommodation very close to the beach and shopping area without paying a stratospheric price, I found this absolutely spectacular solution.
It’s a group of villas set around a pleasant garden with a nice swimming pool, with everything accessible on foot, and at a price I wouldn’t mind paying again.
Contrary to what is usual in many of the Spanish beaches, the “mandatory” Paseo Marítimo is not pedestrian, allowing the circulation of vehicles in almost all its great extension. Despite having some commerce, the preponderance of hotels and apartments does not dispense with the need to visit the interior of the village for shopping.
