Direct Bus Malaga Airport to Marbella

Malaga Airport to Marbella Bus Station Winter Schedule 2018/2019

This timetable is to give you a rough idea of the buses.  Please double check your date and time of arrival of Malaga Airport to Marbella Bus here.

Malaga to Marbella Bus

This route takes around 45 minutes.  It´s great value for money although you still may need another bus, catch a taxi, or ask someone to pick you up to take you to your final destination.  If you are a family of 4 or 5, for a little more it may be worth looking at taking a taxi or private transfer.  Weigh up the cost of the tickets and your time.

In the winter months, buses operate roughly every 2 hours, so depending on the time you land, you could be waiting a while.  In the summer the buses are more frequent, although you could still wait up to an hour.  They do get busy, so make sure you buy your ticket in advance online Avanza Bus (link below).  The website can be a little tricky at times.  You can also buy direct from the Ticket Office, which is just outside the Arrivals Hall, this can also be very busy at peak times.  Your ticket will have a seat number.

We have personally seen the bus driver send passengers who don´t have tickets,  back to the ticket office (if open) and then driven off. So make sure you buy your ticket in advance.  We also advise you to have some change or smaller notes than a 50€.  From Marbella Bus Station, you must purchase your ticket before boarding the bus.  Marbella Bus Station has a coffee shop / snack bar, toilets, lockers, place to charge phones and Taxi Rank.  Please watch your bags here.

You can buy your tickets online, at the ticket office or by phone.  There is now also Mobile Boarding, so no need to print your ticket.  When you book online, you will receive an SMS with all your details to show the driver.    Remember – There are Winter & Summer Timetables.  Please do check direct with Bus Website for exact times.

Here´s the new Malaga Airport to Estepona Winter Timetable 2018/2019 which gives you a rough guide of the times.  Please double check your date and time of arrival on the Malaga Airport to Estepona Bus website here.

This bus route takes around 1 hour 15 minutes.  During winter months there are only a couple of services a day which increases to around 7 a day during the summer months.  If these bus times are no good for you we would suggest going to Malaga Bus Station, via the Express A Bus or train to Maria Zambrano first and then taking a bus to Estepona.
