Brigitte wrote in to me to ask:
"How much are the train fares from Malaga airport to Fuengirola train station please?"
I wrote back, "Brigitte the one way train fare from Malaga airport train station to Fuengirola train station is €1.25 and a return ticket for the same day is €1.80.
If you are travelling from the Maria Zambrano train station in Malaga to Fuengirola a one way ticket is €2.60 and a return ticket for the same day is €1.80.
The Malaga airport train station is still only an open air platform but by the summer of 2010 it will be a modern underground station. You buy your tickets from a ticket machine on the platform. (See below)
Best wishes for your journey Brigitte and thanks for checking in to http://www.gomarbella.com/
Update June 2011: There's a super new train station at Malaga airport, not more than 200m from Arrivals. The train fares are still incredibly low, less than €5.00 to travel to Fuengirola. (2011) You can buy your ticket from the platform ticket dispenser machine or from the ticket office on the ground level concourse before taking the elevator steps down to the train platform.
