I discovered Malaga last year and just LOVE the city. I've been 5 times now since Christmas and I'm coming back for first two weeks in September. I'm 64 and hope to retire to the city centro (NOT the general area) in a few months - I will rent, not buy.
Thanks especially to Benny but also others, I've "done" most things as such and know my way about fairly well - by foot, bus and train. I've so far stayed in hotels in the Centro area so most places were walkable and buses very convenient.
However, I'm pleased to say I've made some friends over these visits and this time I've been invited to stay with a lovely couple whose home is on Calle Capuchinos. I can walk from there OK to the Old Town in the evening but want to spend days on Playa de la Malagueta. I have used the 14 right to the beach if I felt lazy but now I will not be near that route.
Is there a bus from Capuchinos area to perhaps the terminus at Plaza General Torrijos please? The beach is only 10 minutes walk from there. I can not wait to come back to this lovely and very lively city!
