Malaga to Cadiz in a day?

by philosykos

Is it possible to go from Malaga to Cadiz for the day and back?How many hours away is it?Been to Gibraltar for a day..wondering if its about same amount of time.I would be based in Malaga thats why.
Options of getting there?Bus?Any private drivers to be found to do this trip?Any info helpful.

You could possibly squeeze in a day trip but by bus it is a long trip - I think 4 hours - and doing it both ways is going to be tough. have a look at the Malaga bus web site and you can find the times of buses etc. http://www.estabus.emtsam.es/

An alternative is to use the train and head to Seville then take another train south to Cadiz, but here again its a long journey.

By car you can work out driving times using Google Maps and see what is possible. Certainly a private driver tour is going to be an all day thing and likely to cost more than Euros 200.

This is one reason why Cadiz is not visited so much from the Costa del Sol whereas Gibraltar is because it is a lot closer.

its very easy to get around the whole of spain by public transport. you dont need to take taxis or private tours. the bus from the airport stops right outside and is £1.10 euros , they are every half and hour . its very easy. it will take you right into the coach station . then you can plan your next leg . where ever you are going near or far . coaches are going all the time . you just look on the board . or ask at information , they all speak english.pay your ticket and off you go . any questions please ask . i go there all the time

Travel Tips for Málaga

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MALAGA

by LoriPori

MALAGA is the major coastal city in Andalucia. The Moors occupied Malaga until the mid 15th century. It grew to become one of the foremost merchant centers in the entire Iberian Peninsula.
An absolute must see is the Alcazaba , a fortress dating back to 1065. Also worth visiting is the nearby castle Gibralfaro which was rebuilt by the Moors. It offers superb views from the Parador de Gibralfaro. You can see the Plaza de Toros, Malaga Harbour and the Cathedral very clearly from up there.
Pablo Picasso is Malaga's famous son and there are several galleries displaying his work, including the 16th century Museum of Fine Arts, adjacent to the Cathedral. Unfortunately we did not get the chance to see the Picasso Museum. As it was Sunday, and admission was free, there was a huge line-up to get in.
Remember, Malaga is always closed for the Siesta period, as is the custom through most of Spain. Spending a wonderful sunny day, in a wonderful city with some very special friends.

Packing List

by gabriellefox

Spain is world reknown for its high fashion and excellent quality leather bags and shoes. Shop around for the bargains, Corte Ingles in Puerto Banus has some fantastic sales from designer to street brands. If you should get caught in the Costa del Sol without your luggage don't panic. Go down to Puerto Banus and look for a shop which faces the sea called Poco Loco. They stock unbelievable cheep and cheerful clothing. I picked up a smashing sundress for 9 Euros! They have everything you need but pick up a phrase book as you may have to ask for it in Spanish. They have everything you need but pick up a phrase book as you may have to ask for it in Spanish. You can go as bare as you dare on many Spanish beaches. There are some naturists beaches dotted around all over the place. Dont forget you plug adaptors! Wear a hat to protect yourself from sunstroke during the extremely hot summer sun.

JUST POTTERING AROUND

by ALSAGOFF

There are so many shops in Malaga, Ronda, Mijas, Fuengirola and Granada selling terracotta pots. Some painted while others are left in their orginal rustic colour.

If you're someone who's house proud and just loves decorating your home, most likely you will just go mad at these shops. They've got everything from crockery to wall items. Even the lacework is not too bad here. I saw some nice ones in Mijas. Definitely something nice to bring back for mum! Anything from 5 euros to 100++

Bus connections within the city and from the airport is convenient. I made a mistake alighting at the Estación de Autobuses where many people alight. The bus will continue into the city center.
Bus is convenient and easy to use.

TRADITIONAL SPANISH DISHES

by LoriPori about LA CASONA

January 27, 2008
As it was my 60th birthday, we ( Carmen, Stace, Sandra and Isa, Hans and I ) went to a traditional Spanish restaurant right in the heart of Malaga - LA CASONA TABERNA - RESTAURANT.
It was a cozy restaurant and the food was amazing. Of course, I kept the bill and had everyone sign it as a souvenir. Besides I could never remember all those wonderful dishes we had without it.
Berenjenas con miel - Eggplants with Honey ( 6.75 E )
Pechuga Pollo - my meal - Chicken Filet with Garlic ( 7.50 E )
Albondigas - Hans' meal - Meatballs ( 6.75 E )
Rosada Planch - Fillet of fish ( 9.25 E )
Pulpo Gallega - Octopus ( 9.50 E )
Of course we all had dessert - Tiramisu - Natillas - Mousse
