Getting a taxi at Malaga airport is a good choice, but remember to pre-book it in advance to avoid waiting at the arrivals terminal. In most cases, you will get great discounts if you book the return journey as well.
Another way to move around is booking a private transfer to your holiday destination. This is specially recommended for people looking for a more exclusive transportation service.
You should also consider booking a shuttle bus to save money. They will take you to your hotel or destination on a shared bus, without having to wait for the public buses or trains, and prices are usually cheaper than taxis.
You can find the train station right outside the new Terminal 3. Trains run from the airport in two directions, towards Malaga centre to the east and towards Fuengirola to the west. They run in both directions every 20 minutes.
