There is also a new ( Motorway – toll road ( autopista ) which runs almost the whole length from Estepona to Malaga . The older dual carriage way , the N340, is also a good option most of the time although a little slower. An excellent train service runs from Malaga to Fuengirola , plans to extended the service are well underway.
This area of Spain already has the attention from the golfing world as golf lovers already revere the fantastic Costa del Golf which currently has over 75 magnificent courses to play on.
Local hotspots include famous places like Malaga, the capital, and the swank Marbella. For nows let's focus on Marbella.
Marbella is a world-famous, internationally renowned resort. Located at the heart of Spain's sun-drenched Costa del Sol, in the southerly province of Malaga, the city boasts a really lively atmosphere, an array of beautiful sites and an elitist selection of the finest Spanish and international restaurants and bars (don't forget to taste the typical, succulent seafood). Marbella's centre is comprised of its Old Part, the most traditional and historic; however, a must-visit area is the one and only Puerto Banus, Marbella's own recreational promenade, absolutely laden with eateries and high-profile shops to one side, and flanked by the rows of spectacular boats and yachts to the other.
Marbella has long been a hub for the rich and famous. A wealth of celebrities (pardon the pun!) have chosen Marbella and its surroundings as their holiday destination, or as a second hometown. The most notable activities on offer are golfing – the Valle del Golf boasts around five unique golf courses, and about five more can be found within a very close range; architectural, and historic exploration – Marbella, as well as offering the best of Spanish food and culture, especially in the Old Part, is also the site of a number of archaeological beauties, museums and a tonne of events that take place all around the year. The city covers about 27 kilometres of coastline, and is home to 24 beaches, ranging from the fine-sanded dream scenario, to the more rugged rocky outcrops, perfect for that seaside picnic under the shady tranquillity of a palm tree.
Marbella is highly accessible by toll and free-fare coast roads, and is about 45 minutes away from Malaga's international airport, the closest. Other Costa del Sol resorts are to be found nearby, such as Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Estepona. For those who wish, Gibraltar is only 45 minutes away and can serve as a unique day's trip.
Other regional hotspots include Mijas, a charming example of an Andalucian "white village" and home of a beautiful spa and golf course; Ronda , the historical city perched on the edge of a rocky precipice, and Jaen, an old medieval fortress surrounded by extensive olive groves, an 11th Century Moorish baths and the castle of Santa Catalina.
Fuengirola is a well established holiday resort situated in the center of Spain's Costa del Sol. With it's three sandy beaches, Los Boliches, Gaviotas and Torreblanca, which in total measures over five miles, it has become a firm favourite with the many nationalities that visit each year. Fuengirola is renowned for it's five miles of safe and sandy beaches which are overlooked by the many apartment complexes and hotels that accommodate the thousands of holidaymakers that visit each year. Together with the newly laid promenade, it is one of the best holiday resorts on the Costa del Sol. The beaches of Los Boliches, Gaviotas and Torreblanca are classified as clean and safe by the Blue Flag organisation.
Many watersports are available including, water skiing, paragliding and windsurfing and of course pedaloes for the not so adventurous. There is also a marina, which although not as illustrious as the ones in Puerto Banus or Benalmadena, is still a pleasent place to wander and see the cruisers and fishing boats. At the southern end of town is Sohail castle which was constructed in the 12th century by the Romans. Since it was recently renovated, many cultural events are staged here including the Festival Ciudad de Fuengirola.
Food and drink are particularly well catered for, with hundreds of bars and restaurants serving such diverse menus as good old British fish and chips to Spanish tapas. The world renowned "Fish Alley", ( c/ Moncayo), situated behind the Hotel el Puerto, is where you will find some of the best restaurants in town. A pleasant sight seeing trip by horse drawn carriage is one way to see what the resort has to offer.
The largest market on the Costa del Sol is held at the fair ground in Fuengirola on Tuesday mornings. Visitors from other resorts along the coast arrive by train, bus and also on organised excursions run by the major travel companies. The market gets very congested, so please take care of your handbags, wallets etc. Also beware of the gypsys who will try to sell you flowers or tablecloths while their accomplice dips into your pockets, bags, etc. There is also a boot sale on Saturdays held at the same venue with a smaller market near the Pyramides Hotel on Sundays, (10am).
Popular mostly as a tourist destination, Fuengirola is now a bustling town along the south coast of Spain, something which it owes to tourism as much as its busy harbour. The industry in the town has helped bring modern attractions which in turn have brought many people to enjoy holidays in Fuengirola, but those attractions compliment historic and cultural aspects such as Sohail Castle and Plaza de Toros.
