Malaga Airport, is the airport for the famous Costa del Sol or Costa del Crime as many people like to call it. People use Aeropuerto Costa Del Sol to travel all along the Coastline, up to Gibraltar through Fuengirola, Marbella, Estepona, or left along to Nerja and also Inland to Alhuarin, Coin and Antequera. Malaga Airport is the airport most people would search first of all to fly into, however, there is also Granada, Jerez, Seville and Gibraltar all within a couple of hours drive.

Depending on whereabouts you are staying it maybe worth looking at flights from these other airports too. We once flew out of Jerez as the flights were so cheap and time wise, well it was quite a bit further, but with the airport being so small we were in and out of it a lot quicker than say at Malaga and with the difference in ticket prices, at the time it was well worth it.

Travel Tips

The City of Malaga is just a few kilometres from the airport, which makes weekends away to Malaga easy to do. Malaga City is a great city. From the airport you can cross over to the Train Station which will take you into the city and as far right as Fuengirola.

You can also go to Maria Zambrano which is the main station where you can then take the AVE to Madrid, Cordoba, Antequera and further afield.

There are also airport buses which can take you as far as Algeciras on the bus passing through Marbella and also Estepona plus buses to take you into Malaga City. Then if public transport isn't for you there are lots of taxis and or private transfers to choose from and also car hire.

The Costa del Sol is a great place for a holiday all year round really. Generally from May through to October its sunshine all the way maybe with a few bad days, but take this year for example, we had sunshine everyday throughout Christmas 2012. Its also a very popular location for golfers, so much so that you can now hire your golf clubs directly from the airport when you land in arrivals.
