What to do in Marbella

What to do in Marbella

We have now been non-resident apartment owners for 3 years in Marbella. We have two kids and constantly try to find new events in Marballa and the local area that we can explore and recommend our guests to get the most out of their vacation stay.

Please add and recommend events that we are still lacking to explore.

A mountain walk to Ojén

Free activities in Marbella Posted on 03 Oct, 2017 23:40:58
  • A good nature experience, 1½-2 hours walk (7.1 km) in the mountains from the resort to the small town Ojén. Lots of sights on the way to Ojén.

  • Fantastic mountain views and as you get close to the town a small waterfall, beautiful flowers and orange trees.
  • Ojén has plenty of restaurants and sights such as the old church museum and just a walk in the city centre.
  • This is also perfect for an ATV drive – with many other potential routes.

Costa Jump – a good place for kids on a rainy day

Kids between 6-16 will love it. But one hour is enough. But batteries and energy are out after one hour. Adults can join or sit and watch from cafeteria above.

5 min from San Pedro exit.

Prices: 12 euros/hour

Kids horse riding in Marbella

Kids activities in Marballa Posted on 03 Oct, 2017 23:02:05

My girls love horse riding. They are 11 and 7 year old. Every time we are in Marbella we need to go for a horse riding lesson. It is now a tradition. We found a very good teacher (Francisco). A young guy who speaks very little English but has a great understanding of what my girls like and how experienced they are. First lesson was in a closed arena. Second time we went for riding in the mountains. Price is 30 euros/hour. They have English speaking teachers as well.
They also have a restaurant. But that should not be the reason for the visit 🙂

Name of place: Hacienda Montemaria
Less than 10 min from Marbella center. Exit to Altos de Marbella / Marbella Hospital
Call in advance for booking: 616 60 96 20. Normally best after 17.00
