How To Get To Granada From Malaga

Malaga city is a popular tourists’ destination in the south of Spain (Andalusia region). It’s no wonder that Malaga has quite a big airport with many international flights. That is why people who want to travel around the Andalusia region often choose to fly to Malaga instead of Barcelona or Madrid. Same with us, on the way to Granada we chose to fly to Malaga and get to our final destination by land. Here is how to get to Granada from Malaga by land.
