This is a regular question on the Nerja Forums so thought i would help out by including all the options available in one place so that other forum members can point to this and make it easier for people with queries.
Here is the timetable from Malaga Bus Station to Nerja:
As you can see, there are a couple of options depending which bus you get - there is the express service and the multi stop service.
If you click on the "show" link on the right hand side, it will show the route, stops and also maps of where the stops are - very handy.
It also shows the prices for single and return journeys.
As i say, this is from Malaga Bus Station, to get from the Airport to the Bus Station, the easiest way is by jumping on the train and getting off at Maria Zambrano.
Here is the link providing train times: benalmadena-arroyo.com/train-timetable.php
This option whilst convenient (many outside the Terminal building) is expensive - anywhere between €70 and €90 - i know people that have paid both prices at roughly the same time.
Travel Republic are very reasonable at around €20 for shuttle and €69 for private - depending on the time of year the shuttle is definately the way to go :)
There is unfortunately no train service to Nerja.
I hope this provides some good information and will be of use to some, please feel free to add or amend any information to improve the sharing of correct information to our members.
