Marbella Family holidays
Families can enjoy plenty of sun, sea and sand in Marbella. This beautiful Costa del Sol municipality may be a magnet for by A-listers, but there is so much more to this city than just glitz and glamour. Peel back the layers and you may be surprised to see just how much there is for children to do on a family holiday in Marbella.
Marbella has 23 golden beaches which hug the glamorous Andalusian coastline. Some of the best beaches – recognised by their Blue Flag accreditation - can be found in San Pedro de Alcantara and Puerto Banús. Crystal-clear waters and smooth sands provide the ideal setting for families looking to get away from it all.
And don’t worry about any nasty thunderstorms ruining your time away; Marbella has year-round sunshine. July and August see the hottest periods – perfect for when the school holidays kick in!
For exciting outdoor daytime activities, why not take your children to Funny Beach? Dry-land activities, such as go-karting, are on offer for adults and children alike, as well as water sports like banana boat rides, hover-boarding and paddle surfing. Alternatively, make a day out at Aqualand, Costa del Sol’s biggest waterpark. Here you can dash down thrilling water slides, float around in the park’s tropical lagoons, or kick back in the park’s Jacuzzis – ideal for parents looking to relax.
When the sun is at its peak, the littlest travellers can enjoy time indoors at Marbella’s enthralling Kidz Kingdom. This indoor play area is well-equipped for Marbella family holidays, so the youngest in the bunch are free to run around without travelling too far afield. CostaJump is another indoor attraction to take advantage of on family holidays in Marbella. This is the first indoor trampoline park in southern Spain, and offers everything from trampoline-style dodgeball to fitness classes!
