To get to Marbella from Malaga airport simply take the A7, heading towards Algeciras, and follow along until you come to the outskirts of Marbella.
Alternatively, as you reach Fuengirola (around 30 minutes from the airport on the same dual carriageway, you have the option of taking the toll road (AP7 - the P in the road name stands for Peaje which in Spain means a paid road or toll road) which will get you to Marbella quicker and with less traffic.
