Handpicked by a Marbella Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'Top Things To Do with Kids in Marbella'.

Keeping the children happy on holiday is often the deciding factor between what makes for a successful week away or one that finishes needing you to take another holiday to recover! 

Marbella offers many an adventure for youngsters to complement those essential days on the beach with a bucket and spade in hand.  The My Guide Marbella team are all parents so we know exactly what it takes to make for the best experiences for the whole family.  Age is obviously one of the considerations but here we highlight a few activities that we have all found to be all-round family favourites.  Certain suggestions we make here do need you to travel a little from Marbella centre so if you are here on holiday and don't have a hire car then contact our Concierge Partners to organise a lovely driver to take you there and back :)

If you head over to the Kids Stuff section in the Things to do section of the website you will see even more inspiration.
