Planning Your Visit

    Summer is considered to be the best time to visit Fuengirola. Most days in June are sunny for over ten hours! You'll also find that the water temperature is a comfortable 68 degrees. August is quite warm, though the heat is usually most intense for a short period of time in the middle of the day.

  • Where to stay?

    The Plaza de los Chinorros is a fun playground to stay on if you want to be close to restaurants and bars within the city. Of course, a beachfront hotel is tempting too. We recommend staying on Carvajal Beach where there are high rise buildings that offer luxury amenities and waterfront views.

  • How to get around?

    Transportation in Fuengirola comes in many shapes and sizes. From the Malaga airport the easiest way to get to Fuengirola is to take the train. Otherwise, you also have taxis and the option to rent a car. There is also a network of trains and buses within the city.

Excellent site to visit. Beautiful gardens. Better than what we saw I Seville. The guide on the bus was knowledgeable and pleasant. The local guide was ok. The sound system didn’t work that well. She lost one of the guests which held the bus from leaving for a half an hour.

Reliable friendly booking. Definitely recommendable, the on-board crew adapts individually to your wishes, and you can play your own music via Bluetooth. Snacks such as nuts and chips are provided. Drinks are refilled without being asked. We felt very comfortable.

Top-shelf transport. We were 4 adults and 1 child. The driver was waiting with a sign at the exit and led us to a Mercedes V class car. There was a child seat, the luggage fit easily. The driver was driving safely. Everything is great

It is a must-see if you are in Malaga. The road to Gibraltar takes you through the Costa del Sol resorts, so you can have an idea for a future holiday. Moreover, Gibraltar itself is a gem with its mixture of cultures and long history.

Amazing experience and each of the guys running the business were outstanding, gave us a laugh, and the pictures they took were fantastic. I would definitely book with them again
