Getting Malaga from Cadiz
Save

We are staying in Cadiz for 3 nights in April before flying back home from Malaga. We check out of our hotel on Wednesday morning and do not fly until 2pm on Thursday.

Can anybody suggest the best way to make our way back to Malaga by public transport please? Is there anywhere worth stopping at overnight on the Wednesday?

Thank you for any assistance

I think there is a train from Cadiz to Malaga. Search in Renfe.com

And if you go to Malaga, why not sleep in this city?

Thank you. We are happy to stay in this city but thought if the journey would be very long (4hrs) it may be better to break it up and make the most of the day by seeing somewhere else. Our full trip so far is Malaga-Granada-Cordoba-Seville-Cadiz

Thanks

Take the train from Cadiz to Seville and another train to Malaga.

It would be nice to stay over in Ronda if your timing is right. I would take the Ronda bus leaving at 9am and it would arrive into Ronda by noon. It passes and stops at some interesting places. Including Arcos de la Frontera and you will see the hills mainly Sierra de Grazalema. This is a regular bus leaving from the bus station close to the train station in Cadiz. Times can be found on here.

Ronda has a wide selection of places to stay. My favourite is the Catalonia Reina Victoria which is just a few minutes walk from the bus station. This hotel was possibly the first one to be built and has commanding views over the countryside. In the morning you have the Los Amarillos bus service down to Malaga bus station from where its easy to get either an airport bus or the very good 3 times an hour Cercanias train. The times of Los Amarillos can be seen on this

.

If you go by train I often use the Media Distancia ones for cost and change at Dos Hermanas station instead of going into Seville. The RENFE train web site actually points you in this direction when booking a through ticket. They do not suggest going first to Seville.

.

Of course there are other options for stopping over on way from Cadiz to Malaga. For example at Marbella as you can go direct from Marbella bus station to the airport. For example the 11.30 airport bus arrives at 12.15 thus not requiring any change at Malaga city. See Portillo bus
