Fuengirola is situated on the coast along the Costa del Sol and 30 kilometres from Málaga airport. Due to its subtropical climate and its very good connections via air, train and motorways, the city is one of the favorite tourist destinations for both foreigners and Spaniards.

Although the features of Fuengirola have changed into a modern appearance with all necessary infrastructure, there are still alive its andalusian traditions that can be seen especially during the local festivities.

Fuengirola counts with the only theatre in Andalusia, that is run by foreign residents -who are a numerous and important part of the city- where visitors can enjoy throughout the year entertainment in English original version.

Fuengirola is a more tranquil town in comparison with wilder beach resorts along the Costas del sol, as for instance Torremolinos or Marbella.
