Malaga Airport to Nerja Airport taxi transfers & local Nerja municipal taxis

Nerja Taxis are an easy and relatively inexpensive way of getting around the local area. The local Airport taxi service is very professional when compared with typical UK standards.

TIP: The local pre-bookable airport service (called Solhop) is highly praised on both TripAdvisor (rated no.1) and the local forums. They are not the local white cabs, but rather a licensed provider of quality low-cost private vehicles.

The price for an airport transfer to Nerja with the local company Solhop is €65 for 1-4 passengers in a car. The local municipal Nerja cabs charge €70 for airport runs and Malaga airport taxis charge €80+ depending on the time of day/week. With Solhop you can book online and then pay later when you get to your accommodation. Check out 1000’s of their positive TripAdvisor reviews here.

A note on taxis from Malaga Airport: because the taxis at the taxi stand often add various supplements, such as extra baggage, night service etc, it is generally prudent to clarify the price in advance as unscrupulous taxi drivers have been known to overcharge unsuspecting tourists. Better still, book pre-books online here.

Taxis in Nerja are now metered (since 2015) and the run costs are quite fair. There are several Taxi Stands in Nerja. The two main stands are 1) Parallel to the Bus Station on Nerja’s main road and 2) In Calle San Miguel on the Plaza de la Ermita. At all times of the day, you can find Taxis here. Later in the evening Taxis will line up in a small rank next to Plaza Tutti Frutti where there is plenty of nightlife. Official rates should be displayed at airports and inside any licensed taxi. There are taxi ranks in most city centres and it is also possible to hail a taxi in the street. A green ‘libre’ (free) notice on the windscreen or green light on the car roof at night indicates a taxi that is available for hire. Most bars and restaurants will call a taxi for you should you so desire. The main taxi rank is located in Plaza de la Ermita, Calle San Miguel.
During the evenings, from around 20:00, the taxis migrate to Avenida Castilla Perez, outside the pharmacy about halfway down the street.
