Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This end apartment is absolutely ideal for those looking for a holiday in the Los Boliches area, but who are on a budget and cannot afford the high prices agents and owners of beachfront properties ask. It is especially recommended to those who know the area and do not mind not being on the beachfront.
There are distant views of the Mediterranean over the Los Boliches area, but also has views of the Mijas Mountains to the North as it is an end apartment on the block! (The apartment does also look onto the N340 road from the Airport but noise is not noticable thanks to the glazing and distance).
This Los Boliches Apartment for Rent may have very low weekly rates in summer and monthly rates available for longer term winter lets, but it still has everything you need inside, it has a communal pool, is walking distance to the Train Station (and so ALL the major towns from Malaga to Fuengirola, plus the Airport of course) and is a 10 minute walk to the heart of Los Boliches and 15 minutes to the Beachfront and beautifully built and maintained Paseo Maritimo of Fuengirola.
This apartment is also easily within walking distance of the popular "Feria Ground" of Fuengirola, which hosts all the Festivals which are on at various points of the year and also the two Market Days per week are hosted there.
Though you can catch the Train from Los Boliches into Fuengirola Town Centre, you are just as close to walk - 15 minutes see's you at the Feria Ground and from there the Centre of Town is just 5 minutes walk.
The apartment is perhaps not luxury but is cleaned to high standards, offers everything you could want during a holiday, is comfortable and is highly suited especially to those who know the area and do not want to pay through the nose for holiday rental accommodation!

The Costa del Sol region
The Costa del Sol stretches along 150km of Málaga province and is one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations, with its wide sweeps of golden sand. The area's mild climate is the main attraction – visitors and residents alike can enjoy the beaches, as well as alfresco dining plus a wide variety of outdoor activities, all year round.
The area is famous for its hundreds of beaches to be enjoyed along this coast, from quiet, hidden coves to trendy stretches of sand with fashionable beach clubs populated by celebrities and beautiful people from all over the world.
One of the most popular pastimes on the Costa is golf – there are over 50 golf courses in the area, with stunning mountain and clifftop locations, offering spectacular views over the area's varied landscapes, and down to the sea.
Less well-known, but definitely worth a visit, are the many stunning national parks around Malaga province, often located just a short, easy drive inland. You can go hiking, caving, wild swimming, four-wheel-driving, horse-riding and countess other adventurous activities. For a less strenuous day out, the villages of the Axarquia region are some of the most picturesque in all of Spain.
If night-time is your time, then you'll find a huge selection of bars and clubs along the coast, especially around Marbella and Puerto Banus, ranging from the fun and easygoing, to the chic and sophisticated.
The Costa de Sol can be divided into two sections, with Malaga city at its centre. The eastern Costa del Sol is much shorter, stretching from the provincial capital as far as Nerja, where it meets the Costa Tropical of Granada province.
The western Costa de Sol is the section of coast which curves round southwards towards Gibraltar, and includes all the major resorts such as Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Benalmadena, plus of course, the ritzy celeb-magnet of Marbella. This section has a very international feel, with visitors and residents from all over the world.
But if you're coming to the coast on holiday, don't miss Malaga city, which has reinvented itself in recent years as a cultural and gastronomic centre. It has an unparalleled offering of museums, including the Picasso Museum, a buzzing contemporary arts scene, and top-class tapas bars and restaurants.
Fuengirola has in recent years benefitted from a new Beachfront Promenade, which is very wide, runs the full length of Fuengirola (several Kilometres) and is a hugely enjoyable and safe walk for visitors to take in the golden sandy beaches (Blue Flag Rated in Europe) and the gorgeous Mediterranean.
There is lots for everyone to do in Fuengirola. The more traditional Spanish area of Los Boliches has narrow back streets with great little Tapas bars, plus the popular "Feria Ground" where Market Days are held twice weekly and all the major Festivals are celebrated.
The town has a HUGE selection of local and foreign cuisine restaurants, you are spoilt for choice to eat out here - the beachfront "Chiringuitos" are fantastic for Fish though, as should be expected from what is still a fishing town! The Marina (Port) of Fuengirola is lovely and a great setting to go for a drink, coffee or meal with the boats in the background and fish swimming throughout the harbour.
For families the kids are spoilt for things to do. Watersports on the beaches through summer. Aquapark open in the summer months (June - September only). The "Bioparc" Zoo is open year round (open until 10pm in summer months!). There is a full size outdoor Go Karting Circuit nearby to Fuengirola by the Horse Racing Course and also at the massive Indoor Shopping Centre called "Miramar", as well as many shops, supermarkets and restaurants inside there is a roof top Go Kart Circuit, plus a big Cinema showing films in English too (VOE).
Fuengirola is a town that, if you visit once, you will have to come back again to try and do the things you just didn't have time to do the first time!
