What Should I Know When Booking my Flight?

Visiting Marbella requires some planning ahead when it comes to travel times, especially in the high season when flights, hotels and car rentals will book up fast.

The closest airport is located in Malaga City. Spain's fourth busiest airport, Malaga Airport is a modern, spacious airport tailoring to the needs of its visitors. There are three terminals, with Terminal Three being the newest and most used.
