It is a pleasant talk along the beachfront from Los Boliches to Fuengirola town centre.
Starting point in the square in Los Boliches:


At this time of year, the sand is pretty much devoid of tourists. On the other hand, the Paseo Marítimo is busy with folks out walking (just like me :-( ).






The Paseo, as you should expect, is punctuated at regular intervals by chiringuitos but not all of them are open in Nov/Dec.

One fairly recent addition to the Paseo is metal sculptures. Here are some of them.

Nice parking (look carefully):







... And some sand sculptures.





The finishing point: town-centre Fuengirola



Next up- Christmas lights

Spain must have been really interesting during the years of the Movida - wish I had discovered it then!
Enjoy you forthcoming trip to Madrid and I hope you find time to updates us on your time there.

Puna - maybe it is time to consider becoming reacquainted with it! It's a long way for you to travel though!
When was the last time you were down in that area?
