The San Pedro de Alcántara bus stops  are situated on either side of the big and very popular Boulevard.  In the picture above you see the Marbella to Estepona bus stopped at the first of the two bus stop shelters.  If you look very closely at the pavement in front of the tall building on the right you will see the small ticket office which almost allows San Pedro bus stops to be called a bus station.

Buses running from Malaga, Estepona and Marbella through San Pedro and Estepona to Algeciras or to La Linea bus station on the frontier with Gibraltar will stop here on the inland side of the San Pedro boulevard.

Buses running in the opposite direction from Algeciras through Estepona, San Pedro on their way  to Malaga and Malaga airport will stop on the sea side of the boulevard, about 8 minutes walk from the ticket office.  Look at the picture below taken from the top of the  boulevard walkway and you will see the Estepona to Marbella bus at the other main San Pedro stop.  San Pedro Bus Stop on the sea side of the San Pedro boulevard for buses travelling from Algeciras towards Malaga

  1. Hi Amira, thank you for writing in. It is possible to travel from Granada via Malaga to Fuengirola just before Marbella by train but this particular journey is simplest by bus.

    You'll leave from the Granada bus station, stop at Malaga bus station to pick up and drop off passengers and then end your trip at the Marbella bus station.

    The journey takes between 2h 45m and 3h 45m depending on which of the four daily buses you catch. The cost varies from €15,78 and €16.19 (2012).

    You can book your seats online and bring the printout to show the driver. He may not even look at it! You usually get a choice of seats as well.

    The public transport system in Spain works very well. Just yesterday I came back from Cáceres to Seville by bus and then by train from Seville to Fuengirola where my wife picked me up. It was a very easy journey with minimum waiting around.

    Amira, you can book your ticket online here with the Gomarbella online booking system.

    Please let me know if can help with any other suggestions. Best wishes from Marbella for your journey. Mike

  2. Hello Mike,

    We will be traveling to Spain in July and were wondering what is the best way to get from Granada to Marbella. It looks like there are no train routes, so we are looking into bus options. Which bus company do you recommend and which bus stations would we leaving from and arriving to? Can we purchase our tickets online and in advance?

    Thank you very much!
    Amira

  3. Hi Candy, thank you very much for writing in. I am sorry to have taken so long but I've been on my bike doing the Camino de Santiago in the north of Spain and it took longer than I thought!

    The Gomarbella online booking engine is the best link to use. >
    Candy I'm away again for five days from today but when I get back, I will be more than happy to answer any questions. Plan your itinerary and then I'll be pleased to look at it and help you with any suggestions.

    Best wishes from Marbella Mike

  4. Hi Mike,

    My friend & I are planning a trip to Spain in mid-Jun. Since it's the 1st time for us visiting Spain,we need some expert like you to advise us. We'd like to visit the beautiful costal area & cities like Marbella. Looking at all your sharings in the Blog, it seems that taking a bus is a good way. So, we plan to visit Granada first & then take a bus to Marbella. But when I visited the bus company internet Avanzas, I can't find the bus tickets leaving from Granada to Marbella. I'm a bit lost with all those bus stops. Would you pls advise what'll be the bus stops I should book the bus ticket in order to leave from Granada to Marbella pls? Also, how long does it takes for such bus travel pls? Or it'll be easier to travel from Sevilla to other Costa Del Sol city?

    Millions of thanks for your help!

    Cheers,
    Candy

  5. Hi John

    Thanks very much for writing in. I've just tried the page again and it worked OK. I took the opportunity of linking to this blog from the San Pedro stop on the list of bus stops between Marbella and Estepona.

    Yes, the traffic is running very smoothly and there won't be any interruption to your bus service from Marbella all the way through to Bena Vista.

    What an epic trip to come all the way from the UK by train! After the trip when you have a spare moment would you please write in and tell us about it?

    Last tip, if you don't have to wait too long, try to get the Directo service from Malaga bus station to Marbella. It does not stop along the way and is quicker than the normal service stopping in Torremolinos and Fuengirola. You'll find those timings on the Gomarbella Costa del Sol bus timetables page.

    Best wishes for your trip John and let me know if I can help at all with those last 80kms!

  6. Hi Mike,
    Tried to open your link to the list of bus stops between Marbella bus station and Estepona bus station, but it wouldn't work. I did see your excellent earlier (?) list with the warnings about the change of bus and walk in San Pedro because of the tunneling.
    Is this still the case or is the tunnel suficiently finished to allow a bus trip from Marbella to Bena Vist without changing in San Pedro?
    We will have come from the UK on the train to Malaga, then bus to Marbella, and will want to be getting to our destination with as little hassle as pos!
    Many thanks and keep up the excellent work!
    John

  7. Hi Mary, you are welcome, thank you for visiting my blog!

    The Parc de Mercantou looks a great place to walk.

    Let me know if I can help you with your visit in any way and especially if you want to get into the mountains along the coast.

    Best wishes from Marbella.

    Mike
