Train from Malaga airport to Torremolinos

Post by abaxter » Wed Apr 29, 2009 2:08 pm

Hi there,

We are arriving at Malaga next Friday for a few days and are looking for the best form of transport to Torremolinos. We were thinking of taking the train as its not too far and have been told Taxis are expensive if your not going far.

Can you help to let us know where to get off and also if you know how far the train stop would be from our Hotel. We are staying at the Torremolinos Beach Club.

Thank You :)

Hello and welcome to our forum,
Im sorry I could not answer before you come. I will try to answer so maybe it can help to anyone else.

If you are going to take a train, the train stop is outside the Malaga airport; there is a very complete explanation in other forum post, check it out here -> how to get to the train station from Malaga airport arrivals hall.

Once you are in the train, take attention to the text screen over the doors, you should stop at Torremolinos center station, just after "La Colina". The hotel is not far from Torremolinos center train station, about 0.7 km – 10 mins

Are there any stairs to climb at Malaga train station please?

Hello and welcome to our Forum!

I have asked about this, and there are elevators both in Malaga and Fuengirola (but Fuengirola last train stop, not los Boliches where there is a very big ramp, and is not recommended). You would need also help to get into the train.

Let me know if I can be of help in anything else :)

The train station at Malaga airport has at least 10 steep concrete steps, there is no help at the station.

UPDATE Re: Train from Malaga airport to Torremolinos

UPDATE,
Well the airport now has 3 terminals and is looking much nicer.

The train station is now covered over and much easier to access.

You used to walk out the terminal go through a car park, over a foot bridge and then climb some concreate stairs.

Now much better. Leave the terminal building, looking for TREN, walk over the road, and you will see the train station ticket office.

Buy your ticket in the ticket machine, go through the automatic barrier and escalator or lift down to the station platform.

SO MUCH BETTER than it used to be.

Getting on the train is a big step up but at least the station has improved so much. Thank you.
