Rocket to the Moon, from Cape Fuengirola

Rocket to the Moon, from Cape Fuengirola.  The gleaming tower stretches for the clear blue sky as a place flies by, presumably going to or just leaving Málaga Airport.  If there’s one thing almost guaranteed about Spain’s southern coast, it’s the fantastic blue skies.

Puerto Deportivo de Fuengirola

It’s not really a rocket and, as far as I know, there isn’t anywhere called Cape Fuengirola.  It is, however, one of four towers in the Puerto Deportivo de Fuengirola, or Fuengirola Marina.  This leisure port is located in one of the best spots on the Andalusian coast, at the centre of the seafront promenade in Fuengirola, also known as the White Town (Villa Blanca).

Chock-full of bars and restaurants, the marina is a great place to hang out, eat and get drunk.  But not only that!  There are also boat trips and fishing trips available to book.  There’s a frequent ferry to Benalmádena, plenty of whale and dolphin trips, plus parasailing & paragliding boat tours.


Every year, tourists flock to Fuengirola for fun, sun, sea and sangria!  It really is a very popular town in the summer, but gets particularly quiet during the winter months.  A real, living town, Fuengirola doesn’t reply on tourism, but certainly benefits from it.

Fuengirola is a small beach town, on Spain’s beautiful Costa del Sol. The beach stretches about 5 miles, from Sohail Castle in the west to Torreblanca in the east and is a perfect summer beach – flat, long, gentle waters, great for the kids! The promenade is a great place to walk, jog or just wander from chiringuito to chiringuito!

You’ll find the Puerto Deportivo de Fuengirola right on the seafront of the town.  IF you arrive in Fuengirola by train or bus, head towards the seafront and turn left.  Walk along the paseo (promenade) and it’s on your right.
