Dead? Definitely not, full of life? no not really. Its a large working town so no it doesnt close down.T he Zoo is open, nearby towns attractions are open. Most bars and restaurants are open, just less folk in them lol. Great time for sightseeing, weather is hit & miss but plenty to do generally.
Evenings very quiet (even more if the weather poor) but we like it in the winter - look on it as a "city" break and not a beach holiday and you will be fine. It can be cold and wet so bring suitable clothes and when the sun comes out it will be glorious!
We dont mind quiet, so long as there are places open to eat in the evening.
Weather can't be worse than December in UK,can it?Edited: 11 June 2018, 05:28
Hi Haddaway, we have been to Fuengirola a couple of Christmases and new year, what a wonderful plac r. Malaga lights, Fuengirola lights, Torremlinos, Benalmedena, and the plazza's in Fuengirola, not forgetting the jewel in the crown Los boliches. Possibly a more mature visitor, but what a relaxing holiday one can have. Regards, Paddy.
Plenty of places open in the evenings just not so many folk around and yes, the weather is heaps better than the UK! Book it and have a ball.
Thank you all,and I think I qualify as a mature visitor now, Paddy!
Apologies Haddaway, just spotted my mistake, meant to say , ' at Christmas it's more mature people visit CDL.' Forgive me. Regards, Paddy.
Paddy, absolutely no offence taken, and no apology necessary.
Many thanks for your input.
