“Great Fun Go Karting”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The group I travelled with decided to do a spot of go-karting at Funny Beach. Great fun and we all had a laugh. It's outdoor and you are only provided with a head mit and hemet... so I would advise anyone interested to dress appropriately. They have a drinks machine which seemed to be lacking pretty much all the contents advertised so I would advise you to take some drinks with you as well.

The beach was lovely with nice soft sand. Drink/ food huts are not open on Sundays.

Good for some family fun and relaxation in one place.

“Wouldn't bother. Rip off and horrible”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

I came here because i wanted to visit all the beaches in Marbella and near my hotel. On arrival I was hounded by looky looky men who said come on fellow black man buy something. Uhh no I don't want your crappy fakes.
The prices of drinks at the bar were terrible and more expensive than Marbella's central beach in Marbella Town and the showers did not work and were dirty and un cleaned.

“Funny Beach ..... Mmm?”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Poor road acces to this beach, if you miss the turning it's a long drive around the block again, and when you leave the car park, it's a hairpin turn at the top of the steep hill - not ideal, if your in a mini bus !

A clean sandy beach with some sun beds and Unberellas available for hire at reasonable rates.
The beach has quite a steep incline going from 0-2 feet+ in a couple of steps ! - you need to watch little ones, as they could easily be out of their depth very quickly. Also the first 5-6 feet once in the water are stones and pebbles, but then it is mainly sandy on the feet.

This beach is mainly for water sports fans, jet ski's, jet bikes, boats, peddlos are the main attraction. Many were towed across the beach throughout the day from the car park, by a small jeep, which did get on our nerves a little. There is a marked off coridor in the sea, marked by a series of coloured bouys which all motorised boats to are to use, where swimmers should be safe to both sides, this was not adhered to when we visited, mainly by jet bikes, that seemed to think that everyone visiting the beach had gone there to watch them perform stunts - there noise and general foolishness made this a one and only visit for us !

There was, what seemed to be a well run go cart track - all ages and abilities were catered for, and this looked to be a good pastime with all that took part. There were also bungee Trapolines, and fresh water showers that didn't work!

For us..... a not so funny beach, but probably good for teenagers who could afford the expensive motorised sports available.

“Nice beach but a bit expensive.”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We visited Funny beach a few times on our holiday last month. Our boys 10 & 12 loved it. Nice beach and not too busy with lots of other attractions to try.
If you do try anything though it's not a cheap day out. You have to pay for parking 5 euros.
Jet ski's 50 euros for 15 minutes. Not cheap but average for in Marbella.
The inflatable trampoline was 10 euros i think for an hour.
There are also Pedalos and lots of watersports on offer so great if you have money to spare and want to do more than lay on the beach. There is also a small kiosk offering drinks and snacks.
No toilets and a shower to wash off your feet near the carpark.
