Malaga Airport Shuttle Bus

Malaga is the main airport in the region of the Costa Del Sol.  It’s around a 35 – 45 minute journey to villas in Marbella as well as all of the attractions and entertainment, depending on the season and how busy the roads are.

A Malaga Airport shuttle bus will make the transfer from Malaga to Marbella much more straightforward and minimise the amount of stress that can go with navigating from a foreign airport along unfamiliar roads.

We would always recommend sorting out a Malaga Airport Shuttle Bus in advance to make sure you’re able to get a bus closest to you flight.  This is especially important if you have a lot of luggage such as golfing equipment or items of an event, or if you’re travelling as a larger group.

The journey is a pleasant one – the shortest route is usually along the stunning coastline between the airport and Marbella, through coastal towns and villages including Torremolinos and Fuengirola. If traffic is bad along that route you drive closer to the striking mountain ranges so famous for their hiking along the highway E15 although this route has a toll which you’ll need to pay to the transfer company.

There are a number of companies offering Malaga Airport Shuttle Buses and here are a couple of the ones that in our experience of transporting guests to our luxury villas in Marbella, that we would recommend.
