How to get to La Herradura from Malaga Airport
Malaga International Airport is one of the gateways to Andalusia, but as a good International Airport there is a great cosmopolitan and multicultural atmosphere, with a hustle and bustle and an overwhelming supply of transport that can be a bit chaotic if not planned well in advance.
But Descubre Almuñecar is here to help all visitors, who land at Malaga International Airport, get to the little tropical paradise that is La Herradura.
La Herradura is only 80 kilometres, or less than an hour’s drive from Malaga Airport, thanks to Andalusia’s excellent road network.
Therefore, there are several ways to get from Malaga Airport to the little paradise that is La Herradura. From the classic public transport such as bus and taxi, to car hire with or without driver. In this post Discover Almuñecar we will show you the advantages and disadvantages of each possibility.
1. Public bus service from Malaga Airport to La Herradura
The traditional bus transfer from the airport is always the cheapest option, however, it has its drawbacks such as infrequency and few seats, the journey is longer as it takes about an hour and forty minutes. And depending on the time of year there are only one or two journeys a day.
And once in La Herradura you have to walk to your final destination, laden with luggage.
2. Renting a car at Malaga Airport
The second option is to rent a car without a driver, there are many companies that offer the option of renting a car at the airport.
But from Descubre Almuñecar we recommend Bahía Sexi Rent a Car, because it is a company that stands out especially for its personalized customer service, recognized by TripAdvisor.
And it is also a company from Almuñecar with headquarters also in La Herradura, so if your destination is to visit La Herradura, it will always be better to have an office where they will give you a personalised service. You can find all the information you need in your language about this company on their website.
The journey time by car is approximately one hour.
3. Hire a car with driver or taxi
The traditional taxi is probably the most expensive way to travel from the airport to La Herradura, and fares can vary depending on the time of day, the amount of luggage you are carrying, and you may have to wait in a queue for a taxi to become available.
On the plus side, they almost always have availability and will be waiting at your stop at the airport itself.
But you also have the possibility to pre-book a taxi at a fixed price from Almuñécar or La Herradura. This way you will know from the first moment the cost of the service.
If you come in a group Descubre Almuñécar recommends the company Taxis Rodríguez, which is a local company, given that it has an office in La Herradura on Avenida Prieto Moreno. For 75 years it has been offering a quality service and taking care of its clients’ journeys to make their holidays an unforgettable experience.
4. Private transfer service from Malaga Airport to La Herradura
If what you really want is to enjoy your visit to La Herradura from the very first moment, it is worth opting for a private transfer from Malaga Airport to La Herradura. For this reason, we recommend that you travel by private transport, which is the most comfortable way to travel, as a professional and uniformed chauffeur will be waiting for you in the arrivals hall of the airport, and will help you with your luggage to a top of the range vehicle.
In addition, the car will be reserved in advance and will be just for the seats you need and for the luggage you carry, a suitcase is not the same as a few golf clubs for example, and all this without extra charges.
In Discover Almuñecar we also show you some of the options you have to choose your private transfer.
Companies like Suntransfers or HolidayTaxis, which offer luxury routes at a high price, a quality service, but not affordable for all budgets.
That’s why we also introduce you to the company Autosexi, private taxis from Almuñecar that also work in La Herradura because Autosexi is the company of transfers and taxis hired in advance native of the area, with delegation at Malaga airport and throughout the Costa del Sol and Costa Tropical. It is a company that scrupulously complies with all the regulatory measures of prevention established by law, with prices within your reach and with a team of professionals who will answer any questions you may have.
