Fuengirola is located half way between Málaga and Marbella and is only 25kms from the international airport, which makes it a perfect choice for anyone who needs to fly frequently. Indeed, when you live here, you don’t even need to make the 15-minute drive to the airport, as there is a train line from the town with a stop directly outside the airport entrance.
Fuengirola has developed over the years from a small, Spanish fishing village to a popular tourist destination thanks to its six kilometres of sandy beaches, its beautiful promenade and its hundreds of restaurants and bars representing a cosmopolitan array of cuisines.
The Port and Marina area offers a range of leisure services including fishing and dolphin charters and a ferry service to the neighbouring town of Benalmadena. Fuengirola’s attractions include the award winning Bioparc, where animals are housed in natural surroundings rather than cages, and there is a really popular waterpark as well.
Fuengirola is also known for its shopping. It has a good mix of high street names, such as Mango and Zara, alongside designer clothes stores and local boutiques, with many of the shops located around Plaza de la Constitución and on the promenade, near the beach. The nearby Miramar shopping Mall has a host of stores, as well as a cinema and plentiful parking.
And it has its historical sites, such as the famous Sohail Castle, where many international musicians perform, a bridge that dates back to the Moors and the beautiful Nuestra Señora del Rosario Coronada church located in the Plaza de la Constitución, and a local history museum.

Golfers are also well catered for in Fuengirola, as there are eight courses in the area, catering for beginners to advanced level players, including Mijas Golf International, designed by the renowned Robert Trent Jones. Most of them have excellent clubhouses, and one even has a hair and beauty salon.

We were more than happy with the services received from Aqua Estate. Sebastian had all the patience in the world, showing us some twenty properties, never being disappointed when we said no again and happy to come up with more properties to show. Most importantly , he presented us those which were within our price range, not wasting our time with more expensive ones, as so many agents do. Besides his positive attitude, his knowledge and advice were invaluable. Even after the deal was done, he continued to help us with various matters. Last but not least, the entire team of Aqua Estate shows the same high level of dedication. Why would anybody choose a different agent in Marbella ?
We highly recommend Sebastian Jimenez and his agency Aqua Estates. Sebastian is extremely kind and patient, no query, no task is too much for him at any time. Moreover, he is very efficient, helpful and understanding, even if we wanted to inspect a property for the third time, only to continue the search. Sebastian never imposes with his own taste or opinion, however convinces with his professional and local market knowledge. House hunting with Sebastian was a real pleasure and a successful one too as we just moved in with his help into a fantastic apartment on the coast. AND after sales assistance is not only a promotional promise, but was happily offered.
Hello Sebastian, it is with pleasure that we, my wife and I, testify to your professionalism and your attention regarding the purchase of our first property in Spain 4 and a half years ago and of our new house in which we will be moving in October 2021. We have found in you, listening, competence and besides that is why we have remained faithful to you for 5 years, and that we have recommended you to all our friends.
I’ve been with Aqua Estates for 12 years, and have bought and sold various properties with them but I’ll make it short: I wouldn’t even think of using someone else.
