The company is run by Vanessa who is English so there´s no language barrier. They can arrange taxis for up to 4people, mini-buses for up to 19people and coaches for up to 55people.

ALWAYS! Pre-order your transport because if you take a taxi on arrival at the airport the drivers there charge much more and they rarely know where they´re going when they get to Nerja.

There is a shuttle service which can work out much cheaper than a private taxi and not as much hassle as a public bus

Getting a public bus

Getting to Nerja by bus involves first getting from Málaga airport to Málaga city bus station. Although it may well involve a total journey time of around 2 hours, the buses are comfy and air-conditioned.

Getting from Malaga Airport to Malaga Bus Station:

The A Express bus (Line 75) leaves from outside the T3 arrivals area and follows the route:

The buses are every 20 to 30 minutes from 06:25 until 23:30 (to the airport) or 07:00 until 24:00 (from the airport). The journey time is 20 to 30 minutes.

At Málaga Bus Station, purchase a ticket from the Alsa Bus Company office. The Nerja bus usually goes from bay 38.

07:00  08:15*  09:15  10:30  11:00***  11:45  12:30***  13:00  14:15  15:15    16:30***  17:30***   18:45  19:30***  20:15  20:45***  21:30    23:00

The journey time is approximately 1 hour 25 minutes on a ‘normal’ bus and about 1 hour on a direct bus. The current cost is approx 4.50€ one way.

Not on Sundays and Public Holidays
Not Saturday, Sunday or Public Holidays
Direct. Only stops in Torrox, Torre del Mar and Muelle de Heredia

Car hire

I rarely recommend car hire because finding street parking is very difficult and it´s easier to get around town on foot. However, car hire can work out cheaper than a taxi and out of season (Oct to May) parking is not too bad. There are several municipal car parks but they can be expensive (there is one free car park opposite the Supersol supermarket by the Chillar river.) BEWARE! The cheapest quote can often be deceptive.
