Playa, beach bars and activities at sea

If you were one of the lucky ones who made family trips to the beach, you can remember that as children we always wanted to be on the beach with the family for hours. This is why one of the main activities you can't miss in Marbella with children is to tour most of the beaches, and perform games such as:

  • Walks along the coastal paths from which to enjoy wonderful views and the sea breeze.
  • Beach sports such as volleyball, beach football..
  • Activities with on-site guides for excursions or boat trips.

Of course, all this should be accompanied by a lunch at some good beach bar in the area and eat just meters from the sand and the sea. Because if there's one thing we can always remember from a place, are the flavors of its gastronomy.
