We were in Benalmadena last week during unseasonably bad weather. We had two young children with us, so needed something to do indoors to entertain them. The Butterfly Farm is a terrific afternoon of entertainment that will keep the young ones busy. Give them the treasure hunt sheet and they will thoroughly enjoy finding the tortoises, bush babies and iguanas.... More

Very nice place with many large and beatiful butterflies. You may see all the life cycle of a butterfly, including live hatching of a young butterfly. You will get a lot of very beatiful close-ups of butterflies.

many butterflies but you can't realise this because they seem fewer because of not flying around, they have also birds but I didn't see them, explicit information every hour, there is also a small kangoroo inside and turtles.

After a spell of poor Easter weather this was a holiday saver for a 5 year old and a 2 year old! Knowledgeable staff and interesting enough to fill a 1/2 day.

This is a wonderful place to visit and spend a couple of hours amongst the butterflies. It is just so peaceful and tranquil to walk around and look at the insects, birds, animals and lizards.

It is placed near the buddhist temple with fantastic views. The building is nice, inside is hot and humid, but you forget that when the dirst big butterfly is landing on your shoulder, there are countless varieties, and you can learn a lot about them in an authentic atmosphere.
