Sightseeing
La Carihuela, in the eastern part of the municipality, was in the past a traditional fishing village inhabited by people who devoted themselves to the seafarer’s life. At the present time only a few picturesque nooks and crannies remain of the old quarter as reminders of the place’s former identity. For years now La Carihuela has been a cosmopolitan center in which are concentrated innumerable hotel, leisure and gastronomic establishments. It is precisely the district’s gastronomy that has earned this strip of the Torremolinos coast well deserved fame that has spread beyond all borders, and all because of the remarkable “pescaíto” (small fried fish) that is served in restaurants in this area. The beach of La Carihuela, 2.1 kilometres long and fully provided with every service imaginable, extends to the Benalmádena Leisure Port. It is accessible along its entire length by way of the pleasant and bustling seafront promenade, which is bordered by good restaurants and beach bars.

Bioparc Fuengirola represents a different concept of zoo. A zoological park where animals live side-by-side, recreating their natural habitat and so fostering their development at all levels. Visitors are stepping inside a true documentary of the deepest tropical woodlands. Bioparc Fuengirola stands out, among other aspects, for its architectural design as an "immersion zoo", plunging visitors into the animals' native environment. The whole center is intended as a stroll through an all-surrounding recreation of the creatures' original habitat, providing a solution of continuity between the physical spaces occupied by the public and by the animals, with the aim of expressing some of the magic involved in walking through the woodlands and discovering their inhabitants.

Hiking route, with a total length of 7.7 km, divided into 4.8 km long access ways and 2.9 km long boardwalks. If you are interested in making it, you have to book in advance as it is not easy to find entrance. Please visit: www.caminitodelrey.info for further information. As for the boardwalks, the most famous part of the trail, 2.9 km of their length between the entrance to them and the exit point, comprises 1.5 km long boardwalks, and 1.4 km long paths or forest walkways. Estimated time for the full length of the route (this is the way that comprises the two boardwalks, and the paths and the forest walkways that serve as the entrance to the area or its exit) is between three and four hours. Visitors should mind the long distance and the steep slopes that are to be covered in order to access the boardwalks. For safety’s sake, visitors must consider daylight hours when estimating the necessary time for crossing the trail. It approximately takes 4 hours to cover the route of El Caminito del Rey path. At first, from its opening at the end of March to September, this path could be walked along in two directions. From October to the end of March, it can be crossed in only one direction, from Ardales in the north to Álora in the south. This way is downhill, so it is easier to follow it and the route can be finished in shorter time.
