Aarti wrote in to ask. “Please could you tell me what buses go from Malaga Airport to Estepona? I will be arriving at Malaga airport in November, also what are the ticket rates?”
I wrote back to say: “Hi Aarti, the easiest way to get to Estepona from Malaga airport is to take the dedicated Malaga airport to Estepona bus. Fill in the details in the booking engine box and you’ll see the timetable immediately. During the 2018/2019 winter season from October to May a bus ticket from Malaga Airport to Estepona bus station costs €10.20. There is a taxi rank right next to the Estepona bus station which makes it easy to travel on comfortably from there.
To catch the Malaga airport bus to Estepona when you come out of arrivals look straight ahead and about 50 metres in front of you, you’ll see the airport bus stop. The direct bus to Estepona runs less frequently during the day than the shuttle bus to Marbella bus station so if you have a wait of a couple of hours I recommend that you catch the next shuttle bus to Marbella. This travels along the AP7 toll road to Marbella and does not stop anywhere. When you get to Marbella, get a ticket for the next service to Estepona. This bus travels along the coastal road with lots of intermediate stops and will take you right into the centre of Estepona.
If you don’t mind a wait for your bus then have a cup of coffee or a cold beer at Gambrinus outside Arrivals. You’ll see it in the picture above. The Malaga airport bus stop is just behind the cafeteria. If you sit outside over on the left you can keep an eye out for your bus to Estepona.
