Why not hire a car from the Helle Hollis in Fuengirola and get out and explore the areas around the Costa Del Sol. Helle Hollis provide rental cars in Fuengirola for thousands upon thousands of holidaymakers.
The great thing about Fuengirola Town is that it is within a two minute drive of the two main roads on the Costa del Sol, the A7 / E15 toll road and the N340 coast road. If you are not driving then why not consider to hire a car to make your travelling easier and more convienient.
Both of these roads run from Gibraltar at one end of the Costa del Sol to Malaga at the other end. If you want relatively traffic free driving then use the toll road whenever possible.
From Fuengirola the first trip you should make is the short drive up into the hillside town of Mijas. If you look back from the sea towards the mountains you can see Mijas nestling about halfway up. Take in the sights from the first trip, those who have made use of a hire cars from Fuengirola get to enjoy some of the gorgeous sites from Fuengirola and Mijas.
Mijas is a bustling, white, Andalucian Town that has its fair share of tourist shops but it also offers some great views of the coast and a good selection of restaurants and cafes. You can even get donkey rides around the town if you don’t fancy walking,
Benalmadena is the adjacent resort to Fuengirola and although you don’t need a car to get there it is far easier than catching the bus or train. Benakmadena is a larger resort than Fuengirola and has a wonderful marina which is lined with exclusive motor yachts, shops, cafes and restaurants. There are also a number of Theme Parks in Benlamadena including Sea World, Selwo Marina, the Cable cars and Tivoli World.
Another good day or half day out is a trip into the actual city of Malaga. Many visitors to the Costa del Sol forget about Malaga but it is a great town with some interesting buildings and a large Picasso Museum, Automobile Museum, and Carmen Thyssen Museum.
Other towns, resorts and villages that are within easy reach of Fuengirola include Marbella, Puerto Banus, Estepona, Gibraltar and Nerja.
