How to get to Calahonda from
Malaga using public transport

The cheapest way to get to Calahonda from Malaga Airport is to use public transport.

A train direct goes from Malaga Airport to Fuengirola every half hour throughout the day, from where you can catch a bus to Calahonda.

Another option to cut costs is to take the train from Malaga Airport to Fuengirola and then grab a taxi to Calahonda for the short 10 minute journey.

Malaga Aiport to Fuengirola by train

The new train station at Malaga Airport opened in late September 2010 and takes out the previous hassle involved in trying to get a train.

Trains on the Malaga - Fuengirola line now stop at the new underground station which is just a 30 metre walk from the new Terminal 3.

You must get a ticket before boarding your train as the ticket inspector will give you a hefty fine.

The machine takes debit and credit cards.
