This was first in our to-visit list because our 4 year old daughter loves butterflies. Entry fee is €10 for adults and €7.5 for child , I initially thought it was bit steep for such a small place but I was in for surprise. They give you A3 size poster to mark the butterflies and other wild life you see... More

You might think it's expensive but you can come and go all day long. Very interesting not just butterflies there's other animals to see but not touch. You might get luck and view a butterfly hatching ( we did ). Please don't dismiss it it's worth a visit and could even go see the Buddhist temple next door ( it's... More

Small but beautiful butterfly park. We got to see the birth of one and many colourful others flying around. Great opening hours too.

good one, bit expensive for the size, unless you have little ones who insist you to them take there you can avoid it, nice specimens of butterflies, has very good bus access from Benalmadena.

I visited with my partner and our daughter who is nearly three years old. The butterfly park is in an indoor venue with many different plants and so many butterflies with so many amazing colours. It is not a big area so we were only there for about an hour. The butterflies fly all around the plants and you can... More

We visited this centre amd were most impressed by the species of butterfly and knowledge of staff. The atmosphere is so relaxing - I enjoyed sitting on a bench watching the butterflies flying around and listening to the waterfall and soothing music. Watch out for the adorable wallaby which wonders around in the bushes. You can also enjoy coffee, ice... More

We go to the butterfly park most days whilst in Benalmedina. It is so tranquil and calming. Beautiful butterflies, plants, music and waterfall not forgetting wallaby, tortoise, birds and iguana to find in the undergrowth. Lovely coffee shop and gift area and wonderful staff

Butterfly World is easily accessible by bus. It stands beside the Buddhist Stupa so you can get 2 visits for one bus fare. The butterflies are flying free and are large and very colourful.There are many different varieties and they are living in an appropriate habitat.An ideal visit for children in particular.

This was a day I will never forget. The museum was laid out so that you could walk at ease and see everything. It was warm and humid and amidst all the greenery, flowers and butterflies the world outside faded out of mind. This beautiful place has a peace of its own and the information given also added to the... More
