Travelling to the Nerja / Torrox area is easy. If you are coming from Malaga Airport via the N-340 coastal highway, you only have roughly 65 kilometres between you and Nerja. Malaga itself is about 55 kilometres away from the town. Time-wise, the journey only takes about 50 minutes.
To get from Malaga Airport to Nerja, you can board a taxi, bus or minibus, or rent a car. It all depends on your personal preferences, budget, time, and alsoaeroplane arrival time.
Some of the common transfer companies include Nerja Taxis, Transfers Sol, Malaga Shuttle, Holiday Taxis and Hoppa. All are locally based. You can request from them a Taxi, Minivan, or Minibus and alsopay in cash. But out of these three options, Taxi transfer has always been a favourite of many because it’s comfortable and more convenient. The average price for a taxi around the time of writing is usually €65 each way. Prices are generally cheaper if you book before travelling rather than finding a taxi at the airport.
If you come as a group, a minivan would be great or a private car that fits all of you. If you book early enough, all arrangements will be made for you to be picked from the airport. A driver will hold a placard bearing your details at the airport and he/she will help you take care of everything from there.
