Nerja to Malaga (by train)?

by maximus34


My Mum and I are coming to Nerja for a holiday in a month's time. I would like to visit and explore Malaga for the day/evening. Can I get a train? I read that a train line was planned for 2010? Or is it easiest to just go by bus?
many thanks,

No train for a long time - a long wait !
Best is to use the regular bus. You can see the times on
Cost is €7 return approx.
Google Maps showing the location of stops are also given.
Some buses are direct and only tale 45 mins. Others top and may take 1 hour and more.

Travel Tips for Nerja

Bar Boni. A bar that never opened.

by Pauldelabar

I simply must tell you about this bar that although being purpose built as a bar near the coach station, never opened and is still empty today.
Perhaps it's the name of the bar. "Boni", or BONY, if you like. You see, it's location is close to the CEMETARY !, which means that, unwittingly, the Spanish have a sense of humour here, or so it would seem.

The bar is located on a quiet back street and probably has very little chance of being opened. At least until the train station is built at Nerja. Then, with increased number of people arriving, it may become a desireable place to open as also may the closed bar called the 'Bus Stop'. I have a large section on the bars of Nerja on my Nightlife (Link) section.

Frigiliana: Still Unspoiled (for now)

by kucha

Drive due north of Nerja for about 10 minutes -- into the mountains -- for a tour of the beautiful hillside town of Frigiliana. This is more what one might remember of the Mediterranean: whitewashed buildings, narrow walking streets, quaint stores selling locally-made crafts and delicious restaurants and wine bars. After discovering this town, we spent several afternoons here, enjoying "what used to be" of the Costa Del Sol.

Say hello to Annie. (Calle Almirante Caranza)

by Pauldelabar about Irish Annie's : Prop. - Annie.

Irish Bar.
A lovely little bar that again serves the black nectar known as draught Guinness, is Irish Annie's. Tables outside and a sunny location mean that in the height of Summer the bar NEEDS both of its two air conditioning units running at the same time. Spacious and comfortable with a warm welcome are the key words here. And Yes the bar owner's name IS Annie !

Guinness, Amstel and Heiniken are sold here.

Price range:
More expensive than most English bars.
Good craic.
Great Irish decor throughout.
Opening times:
Lunchtimes and until fairly late at night. Open earlier on Tuesdays for the market.
Disabled notes:
Level access but toilets are quite narrow. Casual. No beach wear.

The Pork leg is huge

by daveoneill about White Truffle

Lovely ambience. Youare invited to sit on comfy couches to lookat the menu beside lovely cuddly toys! Prices are reasonable. I started with a tasy Mushroom Risotto followed by herb crusted rack of Lamb.Mint sauce offered. The thyme was from their own garden. The dish was tasty and there was a vast amount of meat! My wife had soup ,fresh and tasty followed by the pork knuckle. It was huge and carved by the chef at the table, plenty of crackling and succulent pork. She was unable to finish it. Apple sauce provided. UPDATE back in Nerja in May 2008...Restaurant has changed hands...VERDICT....good but different Definitely try the Pork or Lamb. Service is naturally relaxed as all dishes are freshly prepared. The two ladies who run the restaraunt are charming and friendly. We tried to return but it was closed for a few days holidays....well deserved.

Sayalonga - a beautiful but quiet village

by Bwana_Brown

Not really sure if we were on the right track for Competa, we pulled the car over in Sayalonga and got out to see if we could gather any additional information on a Saturday morning.

Although inhabited since Roman times, the present-day architecture of Sayalonga is pure white-washed Moorish style and sits at an altitude of 355-m above sea level. Its 1200 residents make their living from the terraced hillsides as they harvest traditional crops of olives, almonds, citrus fruits and even Nisperos (Medlar Fruit), an exotic Asian species that was brought back from the far east centuries ago (when ripe they taste similar to apple sauce).

We parked our car and got out for a stroll to see if we could find the local tourist information office - we did but it was closed. However, we did enjoy our stroll through the almost deserted downtown area of the village - the architecture was quite amazing as various squares were connected by decorative steps. As luck would have it, one wall held a large decorative azulejo (tiled) map of the area that clearly showed Sayalonga was on the route to Competa! That made us feel better as we headed back to the car, where we met a young Englishman getting out of his Range Rover. We asked him just to be sure and he pointed us in the right direction for Competa. In the end, Competa was really busy on Saturday morning market day and we did not enjoy it as much as our unplanned walk in Sayalonga (see my 'Warnings & Dangers' tip and you will understand why!).

While leaving Nerja the next day for Tarifa, we detoured inland once more to check out Frangiliana, another village that is highly spoken of. However, it began to rain so we gave it a miss and continued on our long drive to the Atlantic coast.
