A nice butterfly sanctuary, with lots of different species, don't miss the talk about the work which is every hour on the hour. They also have a nice coffee shop and gift shop. You can go in and out all day for €10

My husband and I visited the Butterfly Park of Benalmadena in the week of 14th November 2016 with our aunt and uncle who live in Spain. Our family had been there before and liked it. We think it was a bit expensive overall and unless you are into butterflies you can get around in a short time. The beautiful colours... More

I really wasn't excited about paying 13 euros to see butterflies. My wife convinced me to go in with our four year old son. Once inside after being briefed by a caring staff member, I was amazed at the amount and different species flying around. Next thing I knew, there were four butterflies on me. There also were some small... More

Beautiful butterfly museum with a fantastic amount of species to see up close. Nice way to pass an hour or so and lovely views over the sea and next to a Buddhist temple which is also nice. Recommended for kids and adults.

We booked tickets through our hotel. Got a taxi there and then a service bus back, no problems at all. The butterfly park is lovely. An enclosed space where the butterflies fly freely around you as you wander the paths. Lots of flowers and foliage. It is very humid. Nice little gift shop.
