Easy Driving Directions From Málaga Airport to The Axarquía

After arriving on your flight to Málaga airport and collecting your hire car, you may have a lot on your mind, not least of which could be driving on the opposite side of the road than you are normally used to.   You will also be faced with a bewildering array of road direction signs bearing unfamiliar names, as well as road works to improve road access to the airport and to build a new underground train station.

The following easy driving directions will soon have you on your way to your accommodation in the Axarquía, with no fuss!

As you drive away from the airport terminal and car hire premises, you will see a large roundabout.   Follow the road signs for Málaga, keeping the large San Miguel brewery building on your right.


At this point, the road has two lanes and you need to be in the left-hand lane.  As you pass the brewery, this left lane will take you up and over a dual-carriageway road (the N 340) and will loop around to the right. As you follow this road around, you will be brought back down to join the N 340 that you have just driven over.


Despite the many directional road-signs you will now see, after approx. 2 kms, be in the right-hand lane and follow the signs for Motril or Almeria.  Sometimes you will see only one of these names and sometimes both.  Motril and Almeria are both situated to the east, beyond the Axarquía, so either will do.

Bear right to loop over the bridge and swing left to join the aptly named Autovía del Mediterraneo – E 15/ A7. Keep following signs for Motril or Almeria until you reach your chosen destination in the Axarquía.
