Popular Day trips from Marbella

Other towns in the coast make for good day trips from Marbella. I have shortlisted a few and shared key highlights of the place and also tips on how to reach the destination.

  1. Nerja

    Spectacular beaches (Playa de Maro), Cuevas de Nerja and Ayo (paella place),
    3 hours by bus. Take a “Portillo bus” from the bus station in Marbella (Avenida del Trapiche)
  2. Malaga

    Muelle uno, La Alcazaba, beaches like Malagueta or Pedregalejo
    Two hours by bus.
  3. Mijas

    Aquamijas (water park)
    You’ll need to get a first bus to Fuengirola and then a second one (M-122 bus) from Fuengirola to Mijas.
  4. Fuengirola

    Beach of Carvajal, the Sohail Castle, Fuengirola zoo.
    Half an hour by bus.
  5. Gibraltar

    Main Street, monkeys in Queen’s Gate, boat rides to see the dolphins
    You’ll need to first reach La Línea de la Concepción, the town just outside Gibraltar. There, you’ll pass the border to get into Gibraltar.
  6. Frigiliana

    Handicraft shops, El Torreón (in the mudéjar neighborhood)
    You’ll need to take the bus to Nerja and another to Frigiliana.
