From the Airport
It is very easy to travel to the centre of Málaga from the airport. Taxis, bus and commuter train services are readily available. The commuter train is one of the most recommended forms of transport, as it is only about a 10 minute journey from the airport to the centre of Málaga. It is also a similar journey time from the airport to Torremolinos, Benalmadena and Fuengirola.
Bus, train and metro
Any of the towns in Málaga province can be reached by bus from the capital. Buses depart from Málaga Bus Station (next to the train station) and Muelle Heredia Bus Station.
Commuter trains are another fast and comfortable option for moving around the Costa del Sol. The Málaga-Fuengirola line connects these two cities, and also stops in Benalmádena and Torremolinos. In addition, there is the Málaga-Álora line, which connects the capital with the Guadalhorce Valley and stops in the towns of Cártama and Pizarra.
