Holiday with Teenagers on the Costa del Sol
If you are considering taking a holiday to the Costa del Sol with your teenage children, think no further. The Marbella area in particular is the perfect place for you and you entire family to enjoy – teenagers included.
But what is there for teenagers to do on the Costa del Sol?
Villa La Sorpresa and Teenagers
Teens love their own space and Villa La Sorpresa is perfect for this. The games room is equipped with a smart TV, PS4, table tennis, Foosball as well as all the gym equipment. Everything a teenager could want is located below the main house in the Villa’s private wellness center come games room. Plus the best views of the valley can be enjoyed from this very spot. Take a look at our gallery to see for yourself.
Action Seeking Teenagers on Holiday
If you’re on holiday with your teenagers and they’re looking for an active day in Marbella, you can take them off-roading. You must be over 18 in order to drive the off-road buggies, so fun-seeking parents can get involved (whether out of choice or necessity) with the younger kids. Take a look at Marbella Buggys for more information on this.
Teenagers can get their adrenaline pumping after you drop them off at the wakeboard centre in San Pedro. There they can try their hand at water skiing and wake-boarding! Parents can grab a drink or a round of golf at Guadalmina golf course next door while waiting to collect them.
There are more water activities in the area. Perhaps the younger teenagers would enjoy expending their energy and making new friends on the Costa del Sol. Here are their options: Aqualand Torremolinos, AquaMijas or Costa Water Park in Fuengirola. Parking on site.
Amble through the countryside on horseback! Send the teenagers (or go all together!) on a hack through the olive groves, the perfect family activity to keep everyone happy. Try Ranch Siesta Los Rubios or the Escuela de Atre Ecuestre, both located in Estepona, just a 15-minute drive from Marbella.
Boats and Beaches for Teenagers
No holiday with teenagers is complete without a beach day. If you´re holidaying in the Costa del Sol, one thing is guaranteed; a vast amount of beaches. Try Puerto Banús Beach for fine golden sand and close proximity to the marina. This area offers high quality restaurants and shops. Or, leave the teenagers at Los Monteros Beach, which has beautiful sand dunes and is popular with young people. They´ll be entertained with all types of water sports. Of course lazing around in the sun is also an option.
Beaches are generally quieter before 11 a.m. so to book your spot in the sun by heading to the beach early. When the sun, sand and crowds become too much, head back up the hill to the peaceful relaxed environment of La Sorpresa and take a dip in your private infinity pool.
Want a boat ride on the Med? Try taking a Catamaran from Puerto Banús to Marbella. Get into that holiday mood as you enjoy the cool breeze on your face and the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean sea splash up around you. Have a look at Fly Blue Ferry for a fun 30 minute boat taxi between Puerto Banús and Marbella.
Clubs and Nightlife for Teenagers on Holiday
Taking a holiday with your teenager is a good opportunity for bonding. But it’s also nice to let them taste the local nightlife. There are beach clubs across the Costa del Sol that vary from very casual to very chic. While you are staying in Marbella, you can find all the up to date events and parties on My Guide Marbella. Remember that the drinking age in Spain is 18 so your teenager might be able to enjoy a responsible drink on this holiday.
