  • Airport bus

    by canttaketheskyfromme Written May 24, 2014

    Almeria airport lies east of the city, on the flat coastal plain. A short bus ride (around 30mins) gets you to/from the city.

    BUS: SurBus #L22 runs between the municipal bus shelter/stop outside the old train station building (right next to the new Estacion Intermodal). Don't go into the new intermodal station, as that is only for trains and intercity buses.

    The bus runs every 70mins from 7:45 to 21:45 heading to the airport, and 7:25 to 22:25 from the airport toward the city. At the airport you will find the bus stop at the eastern end of the terminal, just beyond the arrivals exit. The fare to/from the city is €1.05. The bus is a regular city bus but is usually fairly empty and it's easy to get on/off with some luggage.

    Transport Interchange

    by alectrevor Written Nov 8, 2012

    The Almeria train and bus station is the perfect way to run transport. When you see the comment that the train station is next door to bus station, this is true here it is intergrated. My bus from Murcia took 3 hours and 15 minutes. The train to Granada took 2 hours.

    You can get to Almería from Madrid by bus with Avanzabus, with several departures a day from Madrid and also for the way back.

    You can buy your tickets online at www.avanzabus.com, print the ticket and go directly to the bus.

    Bus travel is easy

    by siwaller Written Jan 31, 2004

    The main bus station is located with the train station. There are several bus operators all with their own ticket booths a big display shows which bus goes where and when. Prices are cheap and the service is reliable.

    For the shopaholics there is a big shopping center/mall on the main road into Roquetas del Mar.

    Flying into Almeria

    by Miguel_Marques Written Jan 19, 2004

    Fly into Almeria's Airport, the second busiest Airport in Andaluc?a after M?laga. Don?t fly domestic, flights into Almeria from other Spanish cities are the most expensive in the country, don?t ask me why. There are regular flights to London with British and charters to many other British and German cities every thursday and sunday.

  • Rental car

    Another way to get easily around in the area of Almeria is to take a rental car.
    We've been 20 years old at that time and had our drivers licence for 2 years, but this wasn't a problem.
    Especially for a visit of the Parque Natural Cabo de Gata, a nature park in the north-east of almeria, it is perfect to have a rental car and to go individual ways. But you should be carful with very small streets, they can get smaller and smaller and end up suddenly in a really bad pathway, with no chance to turn.

  • Organized bus trips

    There are many organized trips by bus. Usually you can book these trips at the hotel, in which you are staying. We made trips to the sierra nevada and granada with the bus. The only bad thing is, if you are motion sick, to get in the back of the bus.

    The nearest airport is Almeria, which is approximately 45 minutes drive from the villas.

    You can also fly to Alicante, which is about 2 hours drive from the villas or Murcia, which is about 45 minutes away.

    The best way to get around...

    by muzzgilden Written Aug 24, 2002

    The best way to get around Almeria and surroundings is to hire a car as local transport is limited. Rail travel is practically non-existent and only offers long distance to Madrid, Barcelona (12hrs) and Granada.
