Bar Buensol, Fuengirola
The Bar Buensol is situated not far from where we live on Calle Salvador Rodriguez Navas, which runs from the Policia Local down to the beach. It is approximately two hundred yards from the sea, but it could be two hundred miles – it would not alter the atmosphere, I think.
We have been using the Buensol for about a month now, as it is en route to the local supermarket, and makes a convenient stopping-off point when walking back with the shopping!
That’s my excuse anyway, and I’m sticking to it.
The Buensol is not a tourist bar; it does not play music and the age group is thirty to eighty. It is basically a bar for locals. However, by that I do not mean that it is only for Spanish people. Far from it, but it is just a good, rock-solid, no messing about, local bar. A few expat Brits use it occasionally, but that is neither here nor there.
The basic reason why my wife and I like the Buensol is its friendliness – or that of its staff and customers anyway. On top of that, the food is good, the beer is good and the prices are good.
What more could you want? And if you say ‘the sea’ (and all that that entails), well, it is just five minutes walk.
The bar is owned or and managed by a Spanish man named Steven. He speaks English and is very friendly and helpful and the cooks are excellent.
The Buensol also has free WiFi, and if you want to learn Spanish in a more controlled environment, I have seen small informal classes being taught there. I am sure that Steven could tell you the dates and times, although they appear to be run by an expat British woman.

All the best,
