A place where you can celebrate events and where they hold a street market every weekend. Funny Beach has an amusement park, mini-karts, a nautical area and a beach club.
It’s an ideal place for the whole family although maybe not for all pockets, the price of the mini-karts is rather dear (20€ for 8 minutes), and the jet skis cost 50€ for 15 minutes for one or two people; it has other attractions like a Zodiac ride (150€ for 1 hour), F1 simulator, pedalos (20€ for 1 hour)...and many more.

In the Guadalmina and San Pedro de Alcantara natural lake, 5 minutes away from Puerto Banus, we’ll find this attraction known as “Cable Ski Marbella”, where the instructors help out both experts and beginners of water-skiing or wakeboarding while they’re dragged along by a system of cables all around the lake. If you fall you only have to wait for the next cable...it’s as easy as it is fun, and at a good price.
The price of this attraction is 11€ for 4 laps and 21€ for 10 laps, and it’s open from mid March till mid November, from 11am to 2pm, although the opening hours may vary.
This place is also recommended to celebrate birthday parties, a perfect spot to spend a day with the whole family and do a bit of exercise.
