Fuengirola 'fastest-growing town' in Andalucía and 'among top choices for residents and holidaymakers'
10 January 2021 @ 20:24

FUENGIROLA has become the fastest-growing town on the Costa del Sol and is now the fourth-largest in the province of Málaga, according to latest census figures.

Mayoress Ana Mula says the published headcount broke the 80,000 barrier at the beginning of 2020 for the first time ever, and the most recently-released population statistics show that year brought another 2,000-plus in resident numbers.

Now with 82,837 people, Fuengirola is fourth in terms of inhabitants in the province, beaten only by Málaga – the largest – Marbella and Mijas, in that order.

“Last year, our town saw the greatest population growth in the whole of Andalucía,” says Sra Mula.

The 3.15% increase means it is now 'one of the most significant' municipalities on the Costa del Sol, according to its leader, with 'one of the most promising futures'.

“This isn't my opinion or perception,” insists Ana Mula.

“It's a fact, and the figures are evidence of that.

“More and more people are choosing our town for their main residence, attracted by the quality of life it offers and the multiple possibilities for making a life for themselves.”

She says Fuengirola is turning into a top choice for moving to for enjoying their retirement, or for buying a holiday home.

“For them, quality of life is a decisive factor in choosing where to buy – the wellbeing that we're always talking about enjoying here is possible thanks to, among other factors, Fuengirola's privileged climate, geographical locations and excellent transport links, including to the airport, by road and train, as well as having our own aerodrome and high-speed AVE rail station.”
