Marbella Bus Station is on the ring road of Marbella and has a
supermarket, cafeteria and even a four star hotel built above it.
Take a taxi to your hotel or hostel from the bus station, or one of
the local buses that run down into the centre. There is a fantastic Málaga Airport to Marbella Bus Station bus service which
runs from the Marbella Bus Station to Málaga airport and back every day of the year.
Bus travellers will find complete details of the Costa del Sol buses timetables here and more commonly asked questions about bus and taxi travel on the Costa del Sol. The Avanza bus company operate most of the buses on the Costa del Sol coast line and one of the questions I often get asked is "Can I depend on the Avanza bus service?"
Look here for a list of bus stops between Marbella and Estepona and here for a list of bus stops between Marbella and Fuengirola.
You can travel by train
from Málaga Airport as far as
Fuengirola. You can set your watch by the time
table, and the trains run from Málaga's main Maria Zambrano train station, RENFE in the
centre of Málaga, right past the Málaga airport train station and on to the Fuengirola Train Station which is the last stop on the
line. The Fuengirola Bus Station to bring you further down the coast is only
about 200m from the Fuengirola train station and taxis are right there
