There is a wonderful ride on a modern air conditioned train between Malaga and Ronda on a through service leaving Malaga at 10.05. It goes through stunning scenery across the plain then up to the hills to Bobadilla. Here it reverses direction and you run through very pleasant higher countryside to Ronda, and the station is just 10 minutes walk to the centre. There is a return train at 16.55. The trip is well worthwhile as a scenic and relaxing train trip, let alone the delights of Ronda. You can get a very nice breakfast after booking tickets in a cafe close to the ticket office at Malaga, though there are self service drinks and food machines on the train as well.
