Day trip to Ronda from Torremelinos

We will be staying in Torremelinos and want to take a day trip to Ronda. What is the best way to get there? Can we do it on our own or should we take a tour of some kind?

Hi Joycee,

The best way is to go on the local transport. There is a direct bus from the bus station on the Calle Hoyo. a return ticket should cost less than 10 euros and drops you off at the bus station in Ronda.

You can get a tourist guide at the shop in the station, have agood read at the earliest moment because there are so many wonderful things to see you wont want to miss one. Take good walking shoes as the cobbles can be hard going especially on the hills. There are several buses available so you can plan your trip as you please.

Hope you have a great trip, we did.

Hi, Joycee,

There are plenty of local travel agents who offer coach trips to Ronda, plus a guided tour. if required. It isn't as cheap as public transport and it will take all day (7.00 am to about 7.00 pm). They will also take you to a restaurant, if you require lunch.

The first 2 hours will be taken up collecting all the other passengers along the coast to Marbella, then it's about 45 mins to Ronda, if I remember.

Public transport leaves at 8.35 am, 10.20 am, 12.50 pm and 4.50 pm. Journey time is 2 hours 25 min and the cost is 8.26 Euros per person, one way.

Buses return from Ronda at 4.30 pm, 6.00 pm and 8.00 pm.

If you want more information about buses, look at http://www.andalucia.com/travel/bus/home.htm (but timetables are in Spanish, strangely enough!)

I have done this trip often, but I always have a rental car. From Torrie, I go to Mijas and then follow the road signs to Coin. From there, follow the road signs to Ronda over the mountains. A very thrilling drive. After touring Rondas, follow the road signs to Marbella. This is a very good road and another trilling drive. Once at the coast take the motorway back to Torrie
