This is a brilliant plaza...always busy, even in the winter. Our favourite restaurant is La Esquina de Chinorros, where the food is always brilliant. Street entertainers in the square make this a very special place. We go at least twice a week and always take friends and family when they are visiting Spain.

A very vibrant and busy square loaded with restaurants and bars. Well worth a visit to experience something Spanish in Fuengirola.

We booked our tour of Sevilla,Spain from Rueben's in Fuengirola.What a great price,better than a lot of value tours. The tour was excellent value. Highly recommend, Sevilla is very attractive. Bus was very comfortable and everything was on time. Beautiful drive up to Sevilla, scenery is really nice. Thanks.

This square behind the main post office is amazing. From the ornate tiling on the Farmacia, to the metal awning over the Cafe Costa Del Sol, its charming. You can sit inside or outside, eat churros, tappas, or have a 3 course meal. There are often street theatre events. This square exites every one of the senses. The sounds, smells,... More

Been coming here every year for the last 3 years & a great place to chill, have a drink & people watch. Not boisterous & lots of locals come here so a great place to go to with kids. Difficult to get a table at the weekend it's so busy

Lovely to sit at one of bars/restaurants and have a drink whilst watching the world go by. Fantastic atmosphere even though it tends to get very busy.

Around 10 or 11 terraced cafes where you may sit and 'people watch' in the sun or under an umbrella. Definitely the place to be, especially for those who like to drink in the local atmosphere. Tapas abundantly available, as are reasonably price meals. My friends and I go there almost every day at some point.

This area has everything whether you want to eat or just have a drink and people watch. Very busy so go early if you want a table. Great atmosphere on a warm summer night.
