Best places to stay in Fuengirola
Fuengirola is at the heart of the Costa del Sol, and is one of the main tourist destinations, so holiday villas in Fuengirola are particularly popular. Its growth started in the 1930s when the first hotel complexes were built, and were completed in the 1960s as was also happening in its neighbouring areas. Since its beginning at the hands of the Phoenicians under the name of Syalis, Fuengirola has undergone significant changes. After the Punic war it passed into Roman hands, and then the Arabs arrived to rename it Sohail. They built the famous castle that is currently the symbol of the city. During the Christian conquest, Fuengirola became part of Mijas until it finally achieved autonomy in the mid-nineteenth century, with an economy based on fishing and port activity. At the beginning of the last century, the arrival of the railway would be the trigger for the subsequent tourist development that placed Fuengirola as one of the main holiday destinations in the country. Particularly sought after in the summer for its beaches, such as the Carvajal beach, Los Boliches or the Castle, are also complemented by a stellar nightlife on the main strip. It is useful to know what each area of the city can offer. Here we have the four best places to find your villas in Fuengirola:
