There are two options when driving to Marbella, the toll free road or the paid one. We have chosen the free toll road because of the beautiful views.

The main road structure, the Mediterranean motorway or A-7, runs along the 161 kilometers of coastline from Malaga, in parallel to the old N-340, linking the coastal towns from Guadiaro to Maro. Another important infrastructure is the toll highway AP-7 or Mediterranean Highway, which runs from Guadiaro to Fuengirola parallel to the A-7, joining it on some stretches around the towns of Estepona and Marbella.
