On the Carretera de Mijas between Mijas and Fuengirola there are the different types of small and medium sized businesses including telecoms, furniture shops, car rentals, car retailers and also two small shopping malls.
There is also a small collection of shops that makes up something like a modern Arabian souk right in the centre of Fuengirola. The area is located on the seafront between the Pyr Hotel and Hotel el Puerto, and you can go up the stairs next to Burger King to get in there. Be prepared to bargain.
For those who want to shop more there is Mijas Pueblo, a small mountain village above Fuengirola who mostly make their living from tourism. Here's a selection of souvenir shops, but you can also buy affordable leather bags and other leather articles and traditional pottery. You can also bargain in many of these shops. You can take the bus up to Mijas Pueblo from Fuengirola bus station.
Fuengirola is a small holiday resort with 60,000 inhabitants and between 200,000 and 400,000 tourists. Fuengirola is located midway between Malaga and Marbella. It takes about 30 minutes by car from Malaga or Marbella. The city is suitable for anyone who likes to be in the sun. If you think it is too crowded in August, you can always go to the suburb of Caravajal to rent a comfortable hammock or Torreblanca which is a bit more spacious. The area of Fuengirola is completely melted together with the city of Mijas Costa.
Fuengirola has one of the nicest and longest beaches on the entire coast. Several years in a row, almost all the beaches in Fuengirola have been awarded with the "Blue Flag" which is a quality designation that goes on purity, availability and ease of use.
