Spanish Sundays – Fuengirola and Malaga

A little later than usual here is this week’s Spanish Sundays post, this time providing a view of Fuengirola and Malaga. I was fortunate to be there this weekend for the conference of the National Association of British Schools in Spain.

Fuengirola is on the Costa del Sol and is located in Andalucia. The sunrise over the sea is spectacular and a feature of this area of the Spanish coastline.

Another feature of the area are the fish barbecues that are located along the beach.

Dotted along the beach in Feuenirola and Malaga are barbecues, often in the shape of a small fishing boat. Restaurants adjust their menus daily to reflect the availability of the day with everything served on the day it is caught. We spent our lunchtime at the restaurant above on the Paseo Malagueta, Malaga. The food was delicious but if I had to provide a recommendation I would say go with the sardines.

This coastline has good communication both with other cities in Europe and with the rest of Spain. Malaga has an international airport and also is a terminus for the Spanish fast rail network, the AVE.
