The fishing towns of Fuengirola and Los Boliches are halfway between the more famous resorts of Marbella and Torremolinos. A promenade along the water stretches some 4km (2 1/2 miles). Less developed Los Boliches is just .8km (1/2 mile) from Fuengirola.

These towns don't have the facilities or drama of Torremolinos and Marbella, but this has attracted hordes of budget-conscious European tourists.
