Wen (Mr Fuengirola) - Fuengirola
Wen says:"My favourite part of Fuegirola is the castle area. The beaches are quieter, there is a suspension bridge crossing the river with stunning views over the Med and up to the Sohail Castle. There are also some wonderful bars and restaurants in this area and at the moment there is an open air bar and live music in the Castle grounds. There are a lot of great apartments in this area as it is close the beach. It´s a great location to live an socialise."
