    Using the train.

    by Askla Updated Nov 21, 2015

    Spanish trains are a good means of transport. They are of good quality, clean and runs frequently.
    I took the train from Torremolinos to Benalmádena. It cost 1,80 €. At smaller stations you will have to buy the ticket from an automat. Just be sure to keep the ticket since you will need it to get out of the station you arrive at. Without a ticket you will not get through the turnstile!

    I post the link to RENFE, which is the railway company, further down. Just click on Malaga and a page in English will occur. (By not linking directly to this page I give you the opportunity to use the same page for other destinations as well.)

    Taking the bus.

    by Askla Updated Nov 21, 2015

    I took the bus (line 103) from the railway station to the stupa, Estupa Tibetana in Spanish. It cost 1,55 € and I payed to the driver. But to know from where to catch the bus was not the easiest task since there is no bus station in Benalmádena. If you leave from the station you then take the street going "backwards" on your right hand side. After about 50 - 75 metres you will se two poles, one bright red and one light green. There you have the timetable for the line 103 on the green pole.

    I post the link to the bus company further down.

    Trains to/from Malaga and Torremolinos

    by SWFC_Fan Updated Mar 6, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Trains run every 30 minutes between Malaga city centre and Fuengirola, stopping at Malaga Airport, Torremolinos, Benalmadena (Arroyo de la Miel) and several smaller stops en route.

    Up to date timetables can be found HERE

    The following information was correct at the time of our visit in February 2011:

    Trains leave Malaga Centro-Alameda station on the hour and half past the hour from 05:30 to 22:30 each day.

    The nearest station to Benalmadena is Arroyo de la Miel. From this station it is a downhill walk of approximately 15 minutes to Benalmadena coastal strip and a little further to the marina.

    Torremolinos to Arroyo de la Miel takes 7 minutes and costs 1.55 Euros.

    Malaga Airport to Arroyo de la Miel takes approximately 18 minutes and costs 1.65 Euros.

    Malaga Centro-Alameda to Arroyo de la Miel takes approximately 32 minutes and costs 1.65 Euros.

    Trains are modern, with TV screens on board that show the name of the next stop and the time to the next stop. Additionally, stops are announced in both Spanish and English.

    Tickets can be purchased from interactive touch-screen machines at each station. You can choose from several language options available on screen, machines accept both notes and coins and change is given.

    Use your ticket to enter the platform via a turnstile (which validates your ticket). Note: keep your ticket at hand as you'll need it at the end of your journey to exit the turnstile at your destination station.

  • Taxi from Malaga Airport to Benalmadena

    by raqelle Written Mar 30, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can get a taxi from Malaga Airport to Benalmadena outside the airport but in summer there are lots of queues. Its best to pre-book online so that you know what you will pay and there are no surprises. www.malagaairporttaxi.net provide this type of service and we have used them several times.

    Phone: (34) 693 900 900

    Benalmádena Bus transportation

    by malaga-girl Written Jan 30, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The local bus service (Portillo) is pretty good, but does take time. From the coast road in Benalmadena there is a regular service to the local towns of Torremolinos, Fuengirola and to Malaga city centre (including a stop by the train and bus stations). You can also catch the bus to other towns including Marbella, Algeciras, Estepona or Mijas.
    The local bus for Benalmadena only is the orange bus. The Portillo buses are white/blue/green.
    If you will be taking the Portillo bus a lot, buy a 'bono' card at the tobacconists. It costs about 2 euros and saves you 1/3 on each one way fare.
    Benalmadena to Torremolinos is currently about 1.20 but with the bono card, it costs 81 cents... so you see how quickly the card pays for itself. It is like a pay-as-you-go phone. Charge it up as required!
    All bus fares in the region are one way tickets only.

    Taxi Car or Bus??

    by ettenaj Written Dec 6, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Avoid taxi's just like any other busy place, local bus services are especially cheap, as is the half horly train service that connects all points between Malaga and Fuengirola ( including the airport ). Consider car rental but beware of hidden rental costs ( daily insurance, distance etc) compare prices carefully among local firms, always enquire about special weekend rates.
