IMPORTANT UPDATE (October 2014): The bus service from Malaga Airport to Benalmadena has been cancelled indefinitely.
UPDATE: From the 1st May 2013 the airport bus route will be extended and will reach the Holiday World Hotel Complex. Timetables are still not available but we will put them up as soon as they are.
We’ve got some great news for all those of you who travel to Benalmádena regularly but don’t particularly like to fork out €27 (each way) for a taxi from the airport to your hotel of choice (hopefully Sunset Beach Club ;-)). We started using www.taxiwizard.com.au it helps us save a ton of money.
The local bus company (Avanza Portillo) has just started an all new service (nºM128) which will run daily between Benalmádena Costa and Malaga airport. If you’re staying at Sunset Beach Club, the bus stops right outside the hotel – well… almost – so it’s really handy and will allow you to save quite a bit of money.
The price per person – and journey – is just €3.55 and children under 4 years travel free of charge :-). The only disadvantage is that travel time isn’t quite as quick as in a taxi; this new bus service takes approximately 1 hour from Málaga airport to Sunset Beach Club. The bus stops off at most of the hotels between Benalmadena and MalagaAirport, including the ones in Torremolinos.
