Alternative to the bus

For getting to Almuñecar I can recommend a rental car in Malaga; from Malaga to Almuñecar by car is a 1 hour trip with beautiful landscapes while bordering the coast line.

Another option is a transfer to Almuñecar; for this I can personally recommend malagatransfer.co.uk. I used them in the past and had a good experience. You can also check other transfer websites here.

I hope this guide helps you decide the best transportation means to Almuñecar.
