Zoo
“A different zoo concept in the city centre of Fuengirola. Animals live together in a recreation of their natural habitat, which you would no expect behind those walls. Try to get some discount coupons in the Miramar Shopping or IPV Palace Hotel.”

Beach
“Puerto Banus !5 mins drive east of the villa, Puerto Banus is a lively coastal town with a BIG nightlife. Amongst the highlights of any visit is a quick walk through the port area, with it’s gargantuan boats and high end bespoke sports cars. The restaurants and bars along the port front (primera linea) are mixed in terms of quality and price. The cheapest, and one of the most popular is Picasso Pizza, for which queues often stretch several hundred metres. Details of preferred restaurants follows later. The street behind primera linea is lined with bars and is generally the focal point of stag and hen parties. The impressively large department store, El Corte Ingles, is another highlight of a trip into Puerto Banus. With two generous floors of fashion for both ladies and men, and a sports department to be envied, the summer sale is a great time to visit. Opposite El Corte Ingles, a more manageable-sized shopping centre is home to Zara, H&M, Massimo Dutti and many others.”
