The best fun activities for kids in and around Málaga on the Costa del Sol
Parents coming on holiday to Málaga province in the main head for the Costa del Sol. While Mum and Dad look forward to relaxing poolside or on the beach, children are also entertained for hours on end by being in the water and on the sand. However, that won’t keep them occupied all day, every day of the holiday.
And, when you are on holiday for just two weeks, and you are unfamiliar with what is available for kids of various ages, the only thing you can rely on is recommendations from other holidaymakers and locals, or the staff at a resort. The alternative method is to trawl through the Internet, where you will indeed, find some excellent information about the huge variety of activities on offer along the coast.
Theme parks are universally popular with the majority of children, and Spain Holiday has put together this great guide to Theme Parks in Malaga. It covers the water parks in Fuengirola and Torremolinos, as well as mini golf and more. Nearer to Marbella, Aventura Amazonia theme park is a brilliant outdoor experience with zipline rides and adventure circuits. There is also a Minikids course for 4-7 year olds.
The BioParc Zoo in Fuengirola is another winner with everyone and is open until late, making it possible to spend the whole day out here. It isn’t a massive zoo, but it is an important breeding centre for endangered animals and all the family can check out the Komodo dragons, the 100-year-old tortoises and the gorillas, tigers, crocodiles and more. Selwo Aventura in Estepona is a combination of zoo and theme park. It has developed an African Adventure with activities, demonstrations and interactions with animals that will delight all the family. It has a diverse range of animals including lions, tigers, elephants and giraffes, as well as many smaller animals. It also has an archery centre, a Kuruka, (the Swahili word for ‘jump’), which is a giant trampoline experience and a zipwire ride that is one of the longest in Europe.
Mundo Mania Play Centre
When you’re looking for a place to go that will please all age groups, our Mundo Mania Indoor and Outdoor play centre is just the ticket. Located in Estepona, (you will find directions and opening times at this link) the vast array of activities on offer ensures that everyone finds something to suit them, from toddlers to teenagers. The outdoor Wet Play area is always a big hit, and we’ll be reopening that at Easter, weather permitting. There are pitches for football and indoors we have a soft playframe for the youngest children, and a more adventurous version for those aged 4 to 12. The TeenZone has pool tables, table tennis, air hockey, table football and foot pool. And for adults we have a cafeteria and bar area with an extensive and healthy menu where the whole family can share a meal once the kids have had enough of playing. You can easily spend hours and hours at Mundo Mania, making it perfect for those days when the weather is not so good, or the kids have had enough of the swimming pool. And, it is one of the safest places to bring your kids, because out trained team are very hot on safety.
We hope you enjoy your holiday on the Costa del Sol and we’ll see you at Mundo Mania for a fun day out.
