Are you looking for ways to entertain your kids during the summer months? Whether you live here, or are visiting for the summer holidays, Marbella has numerous kids playgrounds, theme parks, play centres and leisure activities to keep youngsters entertained. Marbella’s climate means that outdoor entertainment is more or less accessible all year, but for those days when it does actually rain, it is remarkably easy to find fun indoors as well.
Situated in Elviria, east of Marbella, this open-air adventure park has five adventure circuits designed for different age groups, from six-years-old to adults and includes the longest treetop zipline in Andalucia. It’s the perfect day out for all the family where you can enjoy hours of excitement and adrenaline. On site refreshments are available, and you’ll feel as if you have left the coast for the Amazonian rainforest, even though you’re only a 10-minute drive from the centre of Marbella.
QQ Bikes Marbella
This company hires out bicycles, electric scooters, buggies, trikkes, mini segways and surf boards. The trikke, if you haven’t come across one is an innovative vehicle that is seen as green, agile, fun and has health benefits due to the physical effort employed in controlling it. Enjoy a guided tour around Marbella or simply hire one of their bikes by the hour or for the day! It’s the perfect way to explore all that Marbella has to offer without wearing out your feet!
Bioparc Fuengirola Zoo Marbella
A visit to the zoo is a treat that all children and adults enjoy. The Bioparc Zoo in Fuengirola is a “full immersion zoo” that recreates the tropical forests of Madagascar, Equatorial Africa and Southeast Asia. There are 140 species and over 1,300 animals here, kept and cared for in an environment that is setting a new standard for other zoos in Europe to follow. This is a great day out, where kids can not only enjoy seeing the animals but also learn about their habitats and social behaviours.
CableSki in San Pedro de Alcántara is fun for all the family and a place where you can improve your water-ski-ing and wakeboard technique in safety. The cable system allows children and learners to find their feet on the water, and for those who wish to simply relax and watch the kids having fun, there’s the Redwood Music Bar that serves snacks, drinks and cocktails! In addition to the cable ski, you can also enjoy other activities including paddle surf and trampolines.
Mundo Mania Marbella
And of course, Mundo Mania, the largest indoor and outdoor play centre on the Costa del Sol is only a few minutes drive from Marbella in Cancelada, Estepona. It has a soft play zone for babies and toddlers, and one for older children. The outdoor water play zone is a sure favourite with all ages, and there are other outdoor activities including trampolines and multi-sports pitches.
