A Gomarbella reader wrote in from the USA in June last year to ask about taxis at Malaga airport.  

Dave: “Hi, My parents & I are coming from U.S. to a condo in Fuengirola for a week. As there are 3 of us, do you recommend taking a taxi from the Malaga airport to Fuengirola? As opposed to paying for individual tickets for the train to Fuengirola and then bus to our condo? Thanks. I love your website! Dave”

Mike: “Hi Dave, Thank you very much for kind words, much appreciated. I have just phoned the Fuengirola taxi company Tel: + 34 952 47 10 00. The girl on duty said that by day the fare from Fuengirola centre (I said the Fuengirola bus station) to Malaga airport is €60. At night after 10pm and at weekends it is €65. The reciprocal fares as charged by the Malaga taxi drivers will be the same. All taxis have meters and are spotlessly clean.

If your parents are feeling a bit tired after the trip then a taxi from Malaga airport would be the way to go. On the way back and feeling refreshed, then the train from Fuengirola train station would be an alternative. You pick up the taxis right outside Arrivals. Best wishes from Marbella Mike”

Dave: “Mike, Thanks for looking into this for us. Because we will probably  be tired when we get there,  I think we’ll take the taxi from the airport. Dave”

In the picture above you’ll see the taxis lined up outside Arrivals. To the right of the taxis on the ground floor is the Malaga Airport Arrivals Hall in T3. The sliding Arrivals exit and entry doors are just out of the picture to the right. You can see the Departures level is on the first floor in the picture. . Check in takes place from inside the  T2 building on the left all the way from left to right into the T3 terminal on the right. Just ahead of the taxis to the left is ‘The Tunnel’ where  courtesy shuttle cars pickup their rental car clients and limos shuttle limos meet their VIP  clients. 

The Malaga Airport bus stop is almost below when I am standing, straight out from the Arrivals Hall across the open forecourt.

  1. Hello Mike:

    This is Patricia here (friend and associate of your neighbour TL), and I no longer have your email. You possibly still have my mobile so maybe you could let me have your email. Best wishes to you and Angela.

  2. Paulina you are a star, thank you very much. Closer the time please feel free to ask me any questions that come up. The weather will be good in September. Very best wishes Mike

  3. Hi Jacint

    I'm really sorry I can't help you with your search for an apartment during August. It's specialist work and I just don't have the contacts. I hope you find somewhere though. Best wishes and thanks for writing in. Mike

  4. Hi Mike,

    We are going to Marbella for four weeks at the end of August. We are looking for a cheap apartment preferably in marbella. I know that the prices are still high in that period, but we are hoping that maybe you can suggest a place where we can look for one for resonable price.

    Thanks in advance

    Jacint

  5. Hello 🙂 I'm from Poland and in September i'm going to Citio de Calahonda. I've been there a year ago and I got there by train form Malaga to Fuengirola and then from Fuengirola to Calahonda by bus. I wonder if this year I can get there the same way as the year ago?
    Regards, Paulina!
