Family Fun in Marbella

Most people planning a family holiday to Spain will jump in taxis from M laga airport straight to the big resorts, but Marbella has just as much to offer.

If you thought of Marbella as being exclusively a glitzy, ‘grown up’ destination, then think again. From the public beaches with entertaining ‘elephant showers’ to theme parks and adventure playgrounds, the city has a range of family-friendly activities to keep everyone happy.

Family Beaches

Marbella has more than 23 beaches along its 17-mile coastline, 12 of which have been awarded the Blue Flag in recognition of their high quality.

The Spanish love children so don’t be afraid to let them loose to play and enjoy the beach. There are also plenty of umbrellas, bars and restaurants offering cooling shade during the hottest part of the day.

The sea is a natural playground so relax as the kids splash around and when they’re finally tired of paddling they can play in the elephant shaped showers available on the public beaches along the Paseo Maritimo.

Amusement Parks

From Tivoli World, with its thrilling fairground rides in Torremolinos, to the 19-hole miniature golf course at Fuengirola Adventure Golf and Funny Beach in Marbella, there’s loads of family fun to be found along the Costa del Sol.

Funny Beach, in Marbella, is set on the beachfront with its own pool and restaurant and a range of family activities from go-karting and trampolines on land to banana boats and jet skis on the water.

Water Parks

A half hour drive from Marbella is the Parque Acuatico Mijas waterpark with its range of slides and rides for all ages. If the children ever agree to come out of the water there are also rock-climbing walls, mini golf and live stage shows.

Natural Adventures

Just 15 minutes from Marbella is the Selwo Aventura wildlife adventure park. Spanning an amazing million square meters, a fascinating selection of wildlife from around the world are able to roam free in large, natural enclosures.

Along the coast in Benalm dena is the stunning Teleferico cable car which will whisk you and your family up a breath-taking 800 metres in 15 minutes with a variety of hiking and cycle routes waiting for you at the top.

City Tours

Sightseeing doesn’t have to be boring for the kids. In Marbella you can choose to explore the beautiful city by a fun city train, a horse and carriage ride or even cycle along the famous Golden Mile.

The city has plenty of parks, many of which have children’s playgrounds. The Sierra Blanca Urbanisation, close to the Golden Mile, has barbecues, picnic tables and a fun adventure playground for the kids, making it a great place for families to spend the day.

1. Look for coupons before purchasing a product online. Most online stores always have some promotional offers taking place. If you do not find any information about current offers on the site from the online store, look on other sites. Customers sometimes share their coupon codes on discussion boards or couponning blogs.

2. In order to buy a used product online, learn more about the owner first. You need to visit their profile and search for reviews written by other shoppers who bought products out of this seller. Usually do not hesitate get in touch with the seller to ask a few questions about the product you are interested in.

3. If you want to save cash on the products you purchase online and would like to make shopping online more fun, consider auction sites.

And they'll continue to provide great deals to those that have shown big desire for the brand, and so the signup can lead to some phenomenal savings.

5. If you are shopping online, never give out your Social Security number. There is not any website that needs this number for you to buy something. If you are being asked for your Social Security number during checkout, you may be on a scam website. Leave this site and find one which has a better reputation.
