La Colina Train Stop

Laura asked if the La Colina train stop just along the line from Malaga airport was the best one to get off at when travelling to the Hotel Sol Don Pablo down on the Paseo Maritimo in Torremolinos.

I had never been there before so I checked it out. It was an overcast day when I took the photo but if you look carefully you will see the 19.12 train from Malaga to Fuengirola train station rounding the bend. You can set your time by the this train line. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you will see the station clock reads exactly 5.12pm.

Watch the video of the Malaga to Fuengirola train pulling into and out of La Colina train station.

The trains travelling from Malaga airport train station to Fuengirola arrive at La Colina at 12 minutes and at 42 minutes past the hour. The first train of the day into La Colina arrives at 05.52 and the last one at 23.12.

In the other direction from Fuengirola to Malaga airport and then Malaga, the trains run at 10 minutes and at 40 minutes past the hour. The first train from Fuengirola to Malaga in the morning pulls in at 06.40 and the last one out at night in the same direction is at 00.10.

From La Colina to Malaga airport the journey time is 9 minutes.

Laura asked if there were any taxis at this stop. There is nothing but a big car park and a public telephone at the end of the car park. If you need a taxi from La Colina you can phone Radio Taxis Torremolinos on 952 38 06 00. Given its isolated position, you would probably not want to arrive late at night on your own at La Colina. It would be a good place to leave your car at if you didn't want to drive into Malaga, another 32 minutes down the line.

June 2009, Paul wrote to me from Dublin to ask about taking a taxi or transfer from Malaga airport to La Colina as his party were going to miss the last train out of the airport at night so I checked for him and gave him some information about the cost of a taxi to La Colina from Malaga airport.

PS: You can now do online bus ticket reservations through the gomarbella reservation system.
