A great morning spent here. 25 different species of butterflies and they also have a wallaby, chameleon, iguana and several birds. Plenty for kids to do - my 8 year old daughter loved it

Visited along with my daughter and she loved it! The place is a tropical paradise with colourful butterflies fluttering about beautiful flowers. There's also a kangaroo hopping around (cute but it seemed a bit lonely), a large iguana and a tortoise that was hiding between the bushes. They provide a checklist for the children listing all the butterflies they have... More

This the second time we have visited and it's still a great visit. You cannot touch the Butterfly's, but the keepers are there to ask any questions and give an hourly talk on the 1500 Butterfly's currently there. You can take pictures while the butterfly's fly all around you. We really enjoyed this visit.

Entry is a little on the expnsive side at 10 euros and the talk was a little short but we were able to ask some questions and got to watch a butterfly coming out of its chrysalis which was very interesting. There are other animals in... More

My husband visited this and said it was well managed and beautifully laid out. The butterflies were flying everywhere and there were lots of them. There were beautiful exotic plants with flowers and it would have been helpful if they could have been identified. Well worth the visit.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Butterfly Park using the free admission offered with the City Tour bus. (See my separate review) This beautiful attraction was one of the highlights of our holiday in Benalmadina. Many exquisite Butterflies and moths and more. Iguanas, tortoise, wallaby and all the wonderful plants. Especially Phalaenopis looking so healthy in... More
