Marbella bus station is up at the back of the town just off the A7 coastal highway.  A taxi down to any of the hotels or hostels in Marbella town centre is a minimum fare. If you are not pulling a suitcase it’s an easy walk straight down to the beach.   There’s a taxi rank right in front of the bus station. There are left luggage compartments although they may be full at peak travel periods.

The shuttle bus from Malaga airport to Marbella bus station takes the inland AP7 toll road and takes you from the airport to Marbella in exactly 43 minutes with no stops. Remember you can always conveniently book your airport to Marbella bus ticket in advance on the Gomarbella online bus booking engine.  Sit back and relax because it’s a red carpet ride all the way to and from Marbella bus station operating 365 days of the year.

The inter-urban buses coastal buses for example from Fuengirola to Marbella will travel along the coastal road stopping at all the bus stops and then travel through the centre of the town where you can get off at the Farmacia Berdaguer stop and then curve back up to Marbella bus station. Take a leisurely bus trip and join the holiday makers and workers getting on and off at all the bus stops between Marbella and Fuengirola.

Travelling from Estepona to Marbella again the bus travels right through the centre of the town where you can get off at the Marbel Center stop before curving back up to the bus station. The same M220 service will take you all the way to Malaga bus station, stopping all the way along. If you want to get to Malaga bus station with minimum stops ask for the Directo service.

Gibraltar for the day? You’ll be catching the bus from Marbella bus station heading west and getting off at La Linea bus station just five minutes’ walk from the frontier with Spain. Book your return ticket in Marbella and if you can’t, get it at La Linea bus station as soon as you arrive.

A great day’s outing to Ronda? Sit on the left off the bus as you go up to enjoy the scenic views and if you don’t do heights, sit on the right and read a magazine.

Marbella bus station to Sevilla via Ronda is my favourite bus trip.

Here’s a tip if you are buying your ticket from the Taquilla (ticket office). Get to the bus station a good 15 minutes before you travel at a peak time because there is often a queue.  Reliability of Timetable: Marbella bus schedules and times may change without warning but are usually sufficiently reliable. Double check if catching your plane depends on your flight connection.  Start your journey to anywhere in the world from Marbella Bus Station!
