Here are some activities that your family can do while in Marbella:
Enjoy a day out with the kids at the Crocodile Park, Fuengirola Biroparc, Sea Life, Aqualand, Funny Beach and the Tivoli World amongst others. Almost all of these places have bilingual staff and do give out offers and discounts especially during the Summer Season.

Things to do
From whale watching to skiing, families have endless options when it comes to activities on the Costa Del Sol. The Tivoli Park offers cable car rides, taking guests onto the top of the mountain where they can have a meal overlooking the beautiful coast. They also do eagle and birds show here which is a favourite amongst children.
Funny Beach offers kart driving and many other outdoor activities for kids. It is situated on the beach so everyone can have a dip on the water after a full pack adventure day.
Scuba diving, sailing and other kinds of watersports are also readily available for families. Tour operators can be found everywhere in the city of Marbella so you can easily arrange a trip to Gibraltar, Morocco, Seville, Sierra Nevada (Andalucia’s ski resort) and other places.
Take the kids out dining al fresco! Marbella and the Costa Del Sol have hundreds of chiringuitos (beach bars) to choose from. Enjoy authentic tapas with your loved ones in many restaurants in the centre of Marbella or near the beaches. Most places offer kids menu and are child friendly. Some of them also offer gluten-free food, if you wish. Of course, McDonalds and other fast food chains can also be found in Marbella in case you miss your usual burger and fries.
Where to stay
Villas in Spain and apartments are usually the most popular option for family holidays in Marbella. They are exclusive and private, with your own pool and staff if you wish. Staying at villas in Spain can be as affordable as staying in a hotel especially if you come in a group. Most hotels in Marbella are packed and expensive especially during the Summer and Easter seasons so the best option is to stay somewhere away from the massive crowd and impersonal hotels. Best of all, with renting a villa or apartment, you can have peace of mind and security for your whole family.
