“The pick-up was easy, it took 5 minutes from arriving at the desk to driving out the car, and the return took even less time.”
Where to go
Once you've got your car, all of Fuengirola is ready to be explored. You can head straight to any one of its gorgeous beaches to make the most of the weather or make your way to the town to find a fantastic restaurant. Even just driving around will give you plenty to enjoy as Fuengirola is in a truly beautiful location.
Just 15 minutes from the centre of Fuengirola via the AP-7 is the incredible Castillo Monumento Colomares. The Colomares Castle is actually a monument that was built to honour the life and adventures of Christopher Columbus. A relatively new attraction, it was built between 1987 and 1994 and the unique design and setting by the coast are awe-inspiring.
If you want to get away from the coast for a day, drive around an hour and a half up the A-92 toll road to Granada. Known worldwide for its incredible Alhambra Palace, Granada has an amazing medieval history that is perfectly balanced with its cosmopolitan and modern feel. The city has a great allure and a lot to offer, so you may struggle fitting everything into one trip.

You could even hop on a glass-bottomed boat to see the coast from a different perspective.
One place that is hard to miss but that you should make a point of going to is Sohail Castle. This castle has been destroyed and then rebuilt a number of times, making it a symbol of Fuengirola. It has an interesting history so is well worth visiting.
