My least impressive review in Benalmadena. This is the 'Sea Life Centre' but could be more faily described as mainly fish in tanks. Waht did I expect ? , well the only interactive exhibit when we were there was watch the Otters being fed. This was through a glass wall whilst standing up jostling for position with two kids and...

Similar to other sealifes in England but alil pricey unless you look at travel shops which can give you a huge discount . the fish exhibitions are colourful and pretty and the staff are friendly and speak 4 languages.

Positive side: It wasn't too crowded, even mid-peak season, and the tunnel is great. Short walk to lots of great places to eat. Negatives: The place is tiny.

My kids, aged 11, 12 & 12 loved it. We were there for over 2.5 hours. They loved watching the feeding of the sharks and the otters. They fed the rays themselves, touched crabs, sea urchins, starfish and sea cucumbers. It's definitely worth the trip and a few hours out of the sun. The guides were super friendly, helpful and...
