Does the bus from Granada to the coast go along the highway?

After visiting Granada, my girlfriend and I are going to Nerja (next to Malaga). I've seen that the bus of http://www.alsa.es/ go from Granada to the coast but I don't know whether it goes by the highway A44 or throught the old N323. This might be important for me, 'cause my girlfriend has bus sickness if there are too many curves coming from the mountains of Granada, so it would be important for me knowing whether the bus goes along the highway or not.

Thanks!

I think there are several different routes.

All I can offer is - when you have the schedules in front of you click on show under itinerary against any journey time and a pop up appears showing where the bus visits on the route.

Ok, but from the map of the schedule you can't understand whether the bus goes along the highway for a while or never

Depends on which bus you take as stopping places are different. The road is also varied once you reach near the coast for example look at the route of the 1pm bus . I think you will need to ask your g/f if she can take any car sickness medication? Has she thought about this?

Ok. The 1pm bus goes directly from Granada to Salobreña so I do suppose it's going along the highway...

It goes on the highway / motorway

It does NOT take the windy mountain road.

We caught the alsa bus from Granada to Malaga last week. 2 hours and the only stops were Malaga bus Station and then the airport. Smooth highway all the way that was not along the coast.There were many buses throughout the day. Hope this helps.

Our trip by bus from Granada to Nerja (departure time 17.30) took the route through the mountains . A hairy and scary trip , stopping at Almuncar (?) on the way to Nerja . A good guide to the routé would be travel time , in excess of 2 hours probably means not the highway route .

I suffer from vertigo and being on the massive bridges on the highway could make my legs tingle

It is not possible to go from from Granada to Nerja without going through mountains.

Granada is 675 metres Nerja is 0.

If you went on the old mountain road called "carretera de la cabra" (the goat road) you would have passed through Jete and Otivar. However hardly any buses go that way unless you actually want to go to Jete and Otivar.

Spain is a very mountainous country.

If you hate mountains try Castilla de la Mancha.

Cuenca is very pleasant.
