BY ROAD

Spain's modern system of national highways and Autopistas (motorways) make it easily accessible to the rest of Europe and car rentals are very competitive, especially out of season. From the UK and Ireland it is easy to take a ferry or the Eurotunnel to France and then drive down, or take a ferry from the UK to the north of Spain and then drive down. For more details, maps and routes see Getting_here_by_road.

BY RAIL

The nearest mainline rail stations are in Malaga and Algeciras, although there are plans to extend the Malaga-Fuengirola branchline to Estepona and ultimately to Manilva by the beginning of the next decade. Rail travel in Spain is comfortable and relatively inexpensive. For timetables and prices visit RENFE Spain's national rail operator.

BY BUS

Bus travel is a popular and cheap way to get around Spain. Most buses are run by private operators and are comfortable and air-conditioned. If you are flying into Malaga there is a direct coach which picks up outside arrivals and runs non-stop, direct to Marbella from where you can pick up a bus to Estepona and beyond.

FROM UK and IRELAND - There are several operators offering budget and regular flights to Malaga from airports all over the UK and Ireland.
