Frigiliana is roughly 58 kilometres from Málaga city and 68 kilometres from Málaga airport and getting to Frigiliana is fairly straightforward.

Car/Taxi

The vast majority of the journey is on the highway, the A-7.

Leaving the airport by car or taxi, the left lane over the flyover takes you to Málaga, Granada, Motril, Nerja and the Eastern Costa del Sol, and the right lane takes you to Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Marbella, Estepona, Sotogrande, Gibraltar, Cadiz, and the Western Costa del Sol.

To get to Frigiliana, follow the (only) exit road from the airport. After the roundabout you will see the ‘San Miguel’ brewery on the right. Resist the temptation and take the left lane over the flyover, heading for Málaga. Take the exit Ronda de Málaga (Málaga Ring Road), direction ‘Motril’, connecting back to the N340. From here it’s the A7/E15 until you reach Nerja. Take exit 292 for Nerja, Costa, Frigiliana.

At the roundabout, take the third exit and follow the MA-5105 for the last few kilometres, winding your way up into the hills and to the town itself. Driving time +/- 50 minutes depending upon traffic.

Booking a transfer taxi in advance is a lot cheaper than hiring one at the airport, well worth considering. There are several companies offering the service including www.nerjataxis.net. Check out their tripadvisor transfer reviews.

If you are coming from Granada it is also highways pretty much all the way and once again you get off at exit 292 and follow the MA-5105.
