Fuengirola has maintained to preserve its local color charm although it is centrally located between Malaga and Marbella. On top of a nearby hill, stands the Castle of Sohail, which is surrounded by neighborhoods such as Santa Fe de los Boliches, Torreblanca and Carvajal, deeply-rooted to the sea. The downtown is on the beach front which is saturated with clothing stores, restaurants, bars, and lounges. However, the zoo, water park, and Miramar shopping mall are the main attraction points for recreational purposes.
