Kevin wrote in a couple of days ago to ask me: "Hi, can I catch a train from the airport to Puerto Banus?"
I wrote back: "Hi Kevin, the train only runs from Malaga airport train station to Fuengirola train station and then the line stops there. The easiest way to get to Puerto Banus from Malaga airport is to take the special bus from Malaga airport to Marbella bus station The cost is only €4.30, the journey takes 45 minutes and it is a fantastic service.
From Marbella bus station I would take a taxi to Puerto Banus: To give you an idea of the Marbella taxi fares for that part of the journey, from the centre of Marbella to Puerto Banus, which is about the same distance as from Marbella bus station to Puerto Banus, a taxi costs €9.40 during the day and after 10pm and over the weekends and holidays it costs €11.70. Just out of interest from Malaga airport to Puerto Banus a taxi costs €64 during the day and €76 after 10pm and over weekends and holidays
The picture above shows the car parking side of El Corte Inglés in Puerto Banus where the buses stop. In the distance you can see the white buildings of Puerto Banus with all the boats, restaurants, fast cars and glamour you might be needing!
Hope that helps you Kevin, have a good trip and let me know if I can help you further.
Best wishes from Marbella and thanks for your contact. Mike
