Make a holiday apartment in El Faro your home away from home

El Faro apartments provide holidays with all the trappings of a Costa del Sol holiday, but with the privacy, freedom and comfort of self-catering accommodation. Mere minutes from villas in El Faro are Blue Flag beaches, numerous golf courses, high-quality family attractions and lots of interesting places to visit a little further away in the car. At an El Faro villa there’s the extra element of exclusivity, as many offer private gardens, pools, satellite TV and Internet access. It all adds up to a flexible holiday destination, catering to visitors of all ages and tastes.  

Things to do

-Beaches: There are several kilometres of inviting sandy beaches in both directions. El Faro’s own beach is a small bay that sits beneath the lighthouse “Faro” that gives the community its name. To the east is Fuengirola’s eight-kilometre series of beaches, backed by landmarks like the Moorish Sohail Castle. West is the broad and long Cala de Mijas, with great facilities and an array of watersports on offer.  

-Golf: On this patch of the Costa del Sol there’s a tremendous range of golf courses, surely one of the best in Europe for choice and quality. Within a 30-minute radius there are more than 20 courses, the vast majority of which welcome guests. E Chapparal is closest to El Faro, with nine holes across undulating terrain and invigorating views out to sea.  

-Attractions: In the summer kids and teenagers will have great fun at the Mijas Parque Aquático, which has slides that range from the high-speed “kamikaze” to the child-friendly “adventure river”. There also pools, jacuzzis and a range of other amusements. In Fuengirola there’s the humane Zoo Bioparc, which displays and carefully recreates the habitats of a variety of birds and small mammals.  

-Days out: For upmarket shopping and a taste of the high life, Marbella is a posh day trip a few kilometres to the west. To the east is Malaga, the Costa del Sol’s main city and the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. There’s a museum with a collection spanning several of his periods, as well as historical monuments from Roman (an amphitheatre) and Moorish times (the Alcazaba and Gibralfaro fortresses).  

-Cuisine: Andalucia is the home of many of Spain’s most popular culinary exports. For instance, tapas is a regional speciality, with small portions of cured ham, deep-fried squid, potato omelette and patatas bravas (spicy potatoes) served as an accompaniment to wine and beer at local bars. Here, seafood and fish are a big part of the diet; try sardines, which are either fried or grilled on wooden skewers over log embers on the beach.  

Weather in El Faro

For beach weather the best time to get to a holiday apartment in El Faro is between May and October. Sunshine and warmth are abundant at this time of year, but on this portion of the coast there are also breezes that help to take the edge off the heat. Temperatures peak at about 30°C in July. The fringe seasons are also moderately warm, with highs of 20°C in April and November and plenty of days with clear skies. Winters are mild, getting highs of 16°C in December.  

Travel to El Faro

Holiday accommodation in El Faro is served by Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport (AGP). It’s one of the largest and busiest airports in the country with three terminals and flight connections to a host of cities in the UK. The drive from the airport to El Faro doesn’t take more than half an hour on the A-7, which follows the course of the coastline. The train is an affordable alternative, with a stop in nearby Fuengirola, and a connecting bus service that runs to Marbella, stopping at El Faro.
