Carvajal beach is a good hour stroll from Fuengirola centre .. but is well worth the effort not to take a taxi. This quiet beach comes to a stop in a loop at the end of a very long, clean and smooth promenade and is perfect for skaters, joggers, cyclists and wheelchairs. However, if you hop over the end wall, the beach carries on for another several hundred metres but you will have to be quick because the cafe and bar at the top of this stretch is having to make way for a 5-star hotel complete with private beach and amenities. It will be a sister to the Doubletrees Hilton that overlooks Carvajal from the mountains which, itself is going to undergo its own 5-star transformation. The beaches here are cleaner and the sand more fine than that on the front at Fuengirola - though the entire stretch of beach from the west end of Fuengirola all the way to the east beach of Carvajal is so much cleaner now than I remember is 20 years ago. The City Council clean the roads of Fuengirola and along the length of the coast to Carvajal every night at 3am and the beaches are trawled clean early each morning. Both the residents and holiday-makers appear to want to keep this beach very clean because everyone appears to take away all their rubbish. The Carvajal strip houses several award-winning restaurants and has little or no night life other than the late-opening restaurants. My wife and I felt very safe here and often strolled through to the late hours chatting and meeting many of the friendly Spanish people that make up this warm area at the end of Fuengirola. We love it so much that we have put a deposit down on a new build apartment and aim to make it our home. Lastly - what a bonus for Carvajal to be half way along the quiet electric railway line that starts from the Centre of Fuengirola and runs to the Airport at Malaga ... and for a mere €2.10!! On this trip we did not use taxis or hire any form of transport - relying on a 1 minute walk from the airport to the train and then 30 minutes into Fuengirola centre, stopping at Carvajal. Such a lovely place.

Maybe I shouldn't share this well-kept secret, but we have been coming to this beach for years. We always felt safe here with our young children as this beach is secluded. We always have a meal at Kalifato. Highly recommend.
