This is the main station for all the lines leave or pass through Marbella, and if you catch a bus from Malaga airport towards Puerto Banus or Marbella, this is one of the definite stops.
This bus station has 14 platforms, a cafeteria, a shop and also lockers that we can reserve, a waiting room and a supermarket on the outside.
From the Marbella bus station we can take a bus to the different neighbouring areas such as Puerto Banus, San Pedro de Alcantara and the city of Marbella.
The bus station also has public parking in case you arrive by car to pick someone up.
The bus from Malaga airport to Marbella
A lot of people wonder about the different options to get from Malaga airport to Marbella or Puerto Banus, and we always recommend a car hire at Malaga airport as it’s quicker and a lot more comfortable, although you can also choose the bus.
Malaga airport bus stop is located right outside terminal 3 at the airport and the journey shouldn’t take more than 50 minutes if there’s not much traffic, maybe a bit more if it’s during high season.
The timetable is divided into winter season and summer season, and although you can pay when you jump on the bus, it’s advisable to carry the exact amount or small notes on you, as the drivers accept 10 euro notes maximum, and even then they don’t always have enough change.
Bus hours from Monday to Sunday:
6:00, 7:15, 8:45 9,30, 10:1, 11:30, 12:15, 13:15, 14:00, 15:00, 16:00, 16:45, 17:45, 18:45, 20:00, 21:00, 22:45
Train from Malaga to Marbella
Although there are plans to extend the suburban train line to reach Marbella, for now the furthest we can reach is Fuengirola, from where we can catch the bus to Marbella.
Water taxi from Malaga to Marbella
A new option that doesn’t take long is the ‘Aqua-taxi’ from Malaga port to Marbella, with an average duration of around 45 minutes. It stops at Benalmadena, Fuengirola and Marbella, although they are planning to extend it to Gibraltar and Nerja.
