Couples and families in search of Costa del Sol accommodation that is centrally located and offers family-friendly beaches and outdoor adventures often opt for Costa del Sol holiday apartments in Fuengirola, which is a perfect holiday home base for those interested in visiting the world-famous Fuengirola market, exploring the Caves of Nerja, meandering through the architecture of Seville or sightseeing at historical sites, such as the remains of Sohail. Many Costa del Sol self catering accommodation options are within an easy stroll of cafés, pubs and restaurants, allowing visitors to experience local cuisine and nightlife before heading back to their private Costa del Sol accommodation to relax before the adventures the next day will bring.
