There are no direct bus services from Nerja to the west of Malaga.

Take a bus the Malaga, then the train to Torremolinos.

I do the reverse regularly to visit friends who live in Nerja. Get the bus into Malaga, stay on it until the bus station (the end). Walk across to the station and get the local train (direccíon Fuengirola) to Torremolinos. The train journey takes 20 mins.

Torremolinos has five stations, Los Álamos is closest to beaches, Torremolinos for the town centre, Montemar for the Parque de la Bateria and a walk down to La Carihuela.

I think you will have to get the fast bus in to the main bus station in Málaga when you then have two options.

walk through the Vialia shopping centre to the cercanias (suburban train) part of the station, on the far side, across the concourse, next to Media Markt, and get the train or continue straight ahead when you get to Media Markt and there is the 110 bus stop. If you want the centre of Torremolinos or the Bajondillo beach area I would go for the train, if you want Carihuela then the bus would be better.

we made the trip the other way last month as we spent a few nights in nerja for the San isidro festival whilst staying in Torremolinos for 3 weeks.

What are you looking for in Torremolinos, the main tapas areas and areas not blighted by the tourist expansion of the 70/80 is up by the town hall and bull ring, well away from the central retail and beach area.

I used to live in nerja so aware it has suffered like Torremolinos and lost in areas, its Spanish heritage.

Whilst some parts of the centre are recovering, many parts still have the tourist tat shops and international bars. Fortunately the Brit type bar whilst not totally gone is disappearing at a rapid rate

I would get the 110 bus from malaga station and get off at the stop after the las palomas hotel, you will see on the left as you drop down the hill out of Torremolinos centre, cross the road and walk down to the paseo, your in the heart of the Carihuela district, full of spanish restaurants, tapas bars and beach bars, walk to your right in 25 minutes you will be at Benalmadena marina. (you can get the same bus 110 back from here)

Walk to your left and you can walk for 2 miles along the front to the los Alamos area of Torremolinos, above you as you walk is the main area of torremolinos, the whole walk covered in bars, restaurants and beach bars.

The centre of Torremolinos has a very limited retail area, for shopping you need to stop in Malaga.

Hi could anybody advise on day trips from Nerja as we would like to explore further. We have been to Nerja before so we know it quite well. Would it be worthwhile visiting the west side of the costa del sol on a day trip. we would really appreciate any comments thanks

The Croc Park is a must if you've got youngsters, they love it.

That was going to be my main question, who is "we"? Is it a family, kids etc? If so, then there's no end of things to do on the western side.
