Although the town of Fuengirola and Mijas can be jointly traced back as far as the Phoenicians & Romans. In Roman times the town was known as Suelitana. In the middle ages the Romans renamed the town Font-Jirola, after the spring at the foot of the castle this is thought to be the origin of the present name of the town.
The history of Fuengirola shows it to be variously a small settlement, then totally abandoned, resettled as a fishing village and eventually from the 1960's we began to see the birth of tourism and the resort that we know today.
The recent expansion of Malaga International Airport has further aided the development of tourism and now, the opening of the new terminal will make travel to Fuengirola even more convenient. Car parking at the new terminal is first class and extremely reasonably priced. There are good transfer options between the airport and Fuengirola and these include, rail, taxi & public bus.
