Does anyone have any information on how I can get to Nerja from Grenada airport. Is there a bus or train i could take? I know it would be easier to fly into Malaga but its too expensive for me.

Any help would be great thanks.

First of all it is Granada not Grenada.

It is not an easy journey from Granada Airport to Nerja although it can be down by bus - there is no rail connection.

First of all you need to get a bus from the Airport into Granada city - some 16km away. Buses run from the Airport to Granada at 09.05, 10.00, 12.00, 13.50, 16.00, 18.20, 19.50, 21.00 and 23.00. Journey takes about 45 minutes. Taxi fare around Euro 20.

You then need to get a bus from Granada to Nerja - approx 2 hour journey and costing Euro 8.37 per person. Buses leave Granada at
07.00 arriving Nerja 09.15
09.00 arriving Nerja 11.05
13.00 arriving Nerja 14.50
16.00 arriving Nerja 18.00
17.30 arriving Nerja 20.05
20.00 arriving Nerja 21.45

It would be much quicker/easier/cheaper to get a bus from malaga Airport. Half hourly service from Airport into Malaga Bus Station - fare 1 Euro. Then hourly service to Nerja taking 1-1.5 hours with a fare of Euro 3.48 per person. Time table available at

Hope this helps.

Brenda/Casaianda is right, it would be easier from Malaga but anyway:

1. Granada Airport-Granada Bus Station: 3 Euros (20 minutes)

Buses from the airport are scheduled according to flights, so you don't have to worry about them. When your plane (Ryanair or Monarch, right?) lands there will be a bus waiting outside the terminal.

Sometimes, if the bus brings only a few passengers, the driver asks if anyone is going to get off at the bus station (which is the first stop in Granada). If nobody wants to he skips that stop. He asks in spanish () but don't worry, just remember telling him you want to stop at the "Estacion de Autobuses"

2. Granada Bus Station-Nerja. 8,37 Euros (2 hours)

The bus company is Alsina-Graells. You already know the timetable and price.

The first part of the trip (Granada-coast of Almuñecar) is nice. The second part (along the coast to Nerja) not so nice...1000+ curves. It will remain so until the motorway is finally finished.

Enjoy Nerja. It a nice little coastal town. Too crowded in summer but ok in winter. Greetings.
