Funny Beach Marbella closed over Karting Violation

It’s the dream. Sun, Sea and Karting

Funny Beach in Marbella has been shut down by police.

25 years after first opening, the gates to the iconic venue were locked following a go-karting licence violation, having to turn away more than 100 disappointed karters. This follows Marbella town hall claim owner Horacio Helmann violated the terms of his planning permission by operating a go-karting track on the land.

Helmann is ‘outraged’ at the decision and claims that the karting arena was always part of the agreed planning permit. He then went onto say

“My business has always been to include a karting track, it is also certified by the Federation Karts and has always been part of the agreed deal.”

“In the height of summer this is very harsh, they have treated me like a criminal which is totally unfair,”
