Malaga Airport

If you are flying in to Malaga Airport you will need to change bus at Algeciras. Consult the times from Malaga Airport to Algeciras and from Algeciras to Tarifa as above.  There are also a couple of direct buses from Malaga City Bus station to Tarifa.

If your plane arrives too late for the last bus to Algeciras, you would need to take the cercanias train or airport bus from the airport to the city bus station, stay overnight in a hotel near the Malaga City Bus Station and then catch the direct bus in the morning. It may be better to hire a car or take a airport transfer service than this overnight option.
