Anyone who wants to visit the Alhambra can easily do so, thanks to the wide range of buses from Malaga to Granada. Every day, passengers can choose from 39-44 direct services, which take as little as 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach the historic Andalusian city. They can also choose between premium and low-cost buses, allowing passengers to save money as they travel.
Only Alsa runs buses to Granada from Malaga, and operate at least one service every hour from both the Aeropuerto and downtown Malaga. However, it's worth noting that Alsa divide their services into standard and Supra, with Supra buses offering a little more leg room, TVs, VIP waiting areas and onboard WiFi.
The journey from Malaga to Granada is fairly short, but there are some variations, with the trip taking between 1 hour and 30 minutes and 2 hours and 30 minutes. The longest journeys are the ones that start at Malaga Airport.
The Malaga to Granada route is extremely well served by Alsa, who offer 39-44 direct buses on any given day. Expect slightly fewer options on Saturdays, but there should still be a couple of options every hour. Buses leave from 7:00 a.m., until 9:30 p.m.
Departure bus stations: There are two departure points for those traveling from Malaga. Alsa runs 10-12 buses from Málaga's airport. Buses stop outside the arrivals terminal. The other departure point is the Estación de Autobuses on Paseo de Los Tilos, which is less than a mile west of the city center and right next to Maria Zambrano train station.
Arrival bus station: All buses arrive at the same location - Granada's bus station on the Avenida de Juan Pablo II. The bus station is almost 2 miles north of the historic center, so walking into town isn't advised. Instead, travelers can take the SN1 or SN2 buses, before changing onto the La Línea de Alta Capacidad (LAC) bus service into the Old Town. Taxis are also available from outside the bus terminal.
