How do I get to Costa del Sol?
Malaga airport is the third largest in Spain and is only 8 Km from the city centre. From the terminal there is a train that connects to Malaga centre all the way to Fuengirola. On the western part of the coast, Gibraltar’s airport might be more convenient. Either way, any point of the Costa del Sol is no more than 1 hour drive from any airport.
Apart from the airport, is there any other way?
The fast train line (AVE) connects Malaga centre with every other major city in Spain. Madrid for example is less than 3 hours away. Also the port in Malaga brings 9 millions visitors a year since refurbished in 2011.
Not to forget the roads, you can drive virtually everywhere.
