Hi , we are staying in Malaga City Center in the petit palace hotel in June for two nights , what is the best way to get from there to Benalmadena , where we will be spending the next 10 mights. :D We will get the bus from the airport to the hotel but I have read the bus out to Benalmadena isn't a great option! Any help would be great thanks!

Hello and welcome!
Well, the bus is not a great option indeed , but...the journey from Malaga to Benalmadena by bus is not that large, it can takes up to 20 minutes, and the waiting time at the bus station is short as it is the first bus stop.

Another option is to use a taxi from Malaga to Benalmadena, or the train if your destination is at Arroyo de la Miel (where the train stop is)

Hope to be of help! ;)

Thank you for the quick reply! Where would we get the bus from in Malaga? The train might be a good option as well! Would a taxi be expensive as we are on a budget , thank you! :D

You are welcome ;)
If the train is a good option (you are heading to Arroyo de la Miel), then take the train...it is more comfortable and faster than the bus....also the bus will not stop at Arroyo de la Miel but at Benalmadena Costa.

The bus station is next to the Malaga port (Manuel Agustin Heredia Avenue - http://g.co/maps/zrux7) or next to the train station Maria Zambrano, and the bus line is the 110.
