Marbella water sports are abound for families and kids of all ages who love to get into the sea and have fun. Although the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Marbella is not as warm as the coast of Florida or Hawaii, it is warm enough to enjoy some fantastic fun in the Spring and Summer seasons. During the Fall and Winter, it can also be great but the faint hearted should be prepared with a wet suit - just in case!
This page highlights some of the numerous Marbella water sports available along the Costa del Sol. You will also find expert guides who are experienced in working with families, including children of all ages. Many of them operate only during the summer seasons so be sure to contact them if you plan to use their services during other times of the year.
