FUENGIROLA is an important seaside resort that is alive all year round. It is a town where modern buildings are mixed with typical neighborhoods with small fishermen’s houses, such as the BOLICHES neighborhood. It is also a very pleasant promenade, which allows you to walk for miles between beaches and bars, restaurants, stores and “chirringitos”, the small beach restaurants that can be found along the coast. Fuengirola’s large open-air market, with fruits, vegetables, textiles, decorative items, gadgets, etc., takes place on Tuesday mornings (very busy). There is also a covered market in Fuengirola, every morning, where you will find artisans, butchers, fishmongers, market gardeners, etc. (note that on Mondays there are no fishmongers because there is no fishing on Sundays). MIJAS is a very large municipality, which includes CALLA MIJAS, MIJAS PUEBLO and many golf courses. MIJAS PUEBLO (7,4 km away) is a very nice white village at 430 m altitude with an extraordinary view over the whole region. Don’t forget a windbreaker, as it can be a bit cold and windy.
You can also see the bullring built in 1900, and take a short walk to the MURALLA.
