El Faro is best known locally for its iconic lighthouse and the soft golden sands of the beach are broken here and there with rock pools that draw children of all nationalities with nets and buckets and the desire to catch the biggest crab possible, making it an excellent option for lazy days in the sun. In the evenings there is a large choice of restaurants within walking distance, from those serving international cuisine, cocktails and nightlife, in a white, sophisticated atmosphere to traditional chiringuito’s on the beach where the menu is shorts, flip flops and fresh paella. Entertainment for the energetic is as varied, from water parks and sports to shopping for handbags in the local market or watching flamenco dancing in La Cala square.

About the neighbourhood
El Faro is a pleasure to explore on foot with Spanish villas and quiet residential streets. There are two small supermarkets and an excellent choice of restaurants all within easy walking distance. The beach has soft sands, interesting rock pools and safe surf, making it an excellent option for a lazy day in the sun however if you are feeling more energetic there are water parks, a zoo, safari parks, boat and fishing trips, golf courses, a myriad of water sports activities, amusement parks and much much more all within a short drive.
Getting around
Many of our guests do not hire a car during their stay in El Faro as we have a very good selection of restaurants and several small supermarkets all within easy walking distance of our villa. If you do wish to explore further afield, there is a very good bus service that runs along the coast in both directions every 30 minutes, taking you to Fuengirola, La Cala and Marbella, trains from Fuengirola to Malaga are excellent, taxis are plentiful and extremely reasonable and you can even book a day out by coach to further destinations such as Ronda or Gibraltar.
