The bus stops are on the busy A-7 dual carriageway (Autovía del Mediterraneo). To catch buses in the direction of Estepona and San Pedro, you need to be on the side Nueva Andalucia side rather than the Puerto Banus. To reach this bus stop from Puerto Banus you need to go under the road (follow the road with signs pointing to 'Supersol'), come up the hill a little on the otherside and cross over at the first pedestrian crossing. Walk up the steps and you will see the bus stop about 50m in front of you. There are no timetables at the bus stop so make sure you check before you travel! See below for a map.

If you want to travel towards Marbella it is recommended that you catch one of the local buses as it is easier and cheaper, however, if you'd rather not, this bus stop can be found if you follow the 'Walk of Fame' up Avenida Julio Iglesias and go straight on up the path ahead to the busy road.

Hire a car is another alternative way to get around! Consult our general Car Hire page here.
