Parque Fluvial in Fuengirola

Parque Fluvial is situated by the mouth of river Fuengirola, beside the Fuengirola Castle and the Armada Bridge and it is relatively new, as it got opened just over a year ago, becoming the first navigable canal in the Malaga region.

This is a unique attraction in Costa del Sol and a real tourist model as it allows locals and visitors to enjoy a wonderful day making the most of its fabulous facilities.

This new leisure area has specific zones to practice sports like basketball, ping-pong, boules or cycling, and also a canal with paddle boats for rent. Besides, it also has viewpoints, paths, gardens and resting zones if peace and calm is what you are looking for.

This is one of the most ambitious projects of the city of Fuengirola and its main aim was to encourage the visit of tourists with a wide offer of appealing leisure activities… In fact, it is awesome to have so many things available in just one place!
