Airport Car Hire
Located right in the centre of Costa del Sol, one of the most beautiful coastal areas in Europe, Malaga should be on the must-visit list of anyone who loves an idyllic beach holiday. From Marbella to Nerja, there are plenty of famous Mediterranean resort towns that can be easily reached if you hire a car. And as if that weren’t enough, the city of Malaga and surrounding Andalusia has a wealth of history, art, and nature for any curious to enjoy. Here is the pick of its attractions:
- Alcazaba. The most famous of its kind, Malaga’s Alcazaba is an unmistakable symbol of the city. Built almost 1,000 years ago by the Muslim Moors, the city’s then-rulers, this impressive and ornate mountaintop fortress is not to be missed.
- Interactive Museum of Music. The domains of Roman, Moor, and Spanish kings who have ruled Malaga over the centuries weren’t only powerful in war and trade — they were also great centres of culture. Some of that legacy can be seen and heard in this fun modern museum made up of the White, Red, and Black rooms. Visit the museum’s official website to find out about opening hours and to purchase tickets.
- Lobo Park. The grey wolf is usually associated with the north and east of Europe, so it might come as a surprise that Spain is home to one of the largest populations of these majestic carnivores. Located in nearby Antequera less than an hour’s drive north of Malaga, this park is dedicated to the conversation of the often feared but intelligent creature. Visit the park’s website to find out how to book a tour.
- Tarifa. The southernmost point of Europe, cosy Tarifa is only 14 km (8.1 miles) north of Africa. Located at the point where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic, this town was known to the Phoenicians and Romans who left behind some impressive ruins. On a more recent note, Tarifa is also one of the best places in Spain for surfing and kitesurfing. The trip from Malaga takes about two hours.
- The Sierra Nevada. Perhaps not as famous as its namesake in California, the Sierra Nevada is nonetheless one of the most impressive scenic areas in Spain. A mountain range and a national park, it is home to Mulhacén, the country’s highest mainland peak and offers walking, climbing, paragliding, skiing, and snowkiting. Sierra Nevada National Park is located about a two-hour drive northeast from Malaga, meaning it can easily be visited as a day trip.

Services and facilities
Nearest petrol station
Another BP station can be found at the airport. This is only convenient for those returning hired cars to companies located in the terminal.
If returning a car to OK, then you will need to use MA-20 instead of MA-21 (coming from Malaga). A block north of OK is a MADESE station.
If returning a car to Centauro, then you will also need to use MA-20 instead of MA-21 (when coming from Malaga). You can use the same station as OK renters, though it requires a circle. An alternative is to fill up closer to the city.
