There are a number of good tapas bars and restaurants at the back of Fuengirola’s main square, behind the main post office. This is the website to one of them so you can find it but when you get there you will see that there are a number to choose from, these are two or our favourites.
Casa Colon –
Bubba bar – Tripadvisor

​There are also some good tapas bars in Mijas too. 

Finally there are plenty more good restaurants – there are a few business cards left by other guests that have tried other places that are good. If you need any help with directions to any of these or other places please call Simon.

There are so many to choose from so below I have listed the post popular.

The closest is a small one of the right hand side called Dia as you go into Mijas village and there is also one on the left just a little further along called Eroski. There is also a pharmacy, post office and cash machines in the village.

Further afield – If you go straight down the hill, straight over the motorway/toll road roundabout, straight over the next one that has a galp petrol station. Straight over the next one there is Lidl and opposite an Aldi and next door to Aldi is The Food Co which sells Tesco’s and other British supermarket produce.
Google directions to Lidl are here.

At the next roundabout with a big yellow sun on it take the first right to Marbella – you will now be on the A7/N340. (If you carried on straight here instead it would take you into Fuengirola to the beach etc).

Now you are on the A7 take the first exit right (white signpost saying Feungirola) – then third right at the roundabout (road parallel with the A7) takes you to Carrefour – which is a big supermarket with everything you would need.

The second exit right off the A7 has a white signpost saying Fuengirola/ Coin – then second right at the roundabout (parallel with the A7) takes you to a big outdoor shopping complex that has an Iceland which sells all UK food. There is also a big Lidl near there.
Google directions to Iceland centre are here.

The third exit right – Blue signpost – exit number 208 then second right at the roundabout (first right would take you back to Lidl/Iceland) – this takes you to Miramar shopping centre which has a supermarket and all the big shops in it. Along with restaurants and a cinema that shows films in English.
Google directions to Miramar are here.

Any problems or if you need better instruction or get lost – please phone Simon!!!
