First visited as part of a 6 island boat trip, the view from Rock Bar was incredible, felt like a film set. We returned later and stayed the night in a tent, where breakfast and dinner was included in a very reasonable price. The valley itself was gorgeous with many butterflies and a small waterfall. The valley is also home to tortoises, geese, and chickens. At night we saw shooting stars and drank with the locals. It has a very relaxed vibe, far from the neon nightmare of the Oludeniz strip. As the only English people there that night it was magical, if I returned to the area I would stay at Butterfly Valley again, a must see.

“No waterfall”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

The waterfall is dry at this time of year so don't bother with the walk in the heat. The beach is very stony so rake waterproof shoes.

Nothing to do with Olu Deniz, without fancy hotels and restaurants and tourism driven water sports. Just a marvelous beach, a camp, a

“What a beautiful place to visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

After reading some previous reviews im thinking that some strays from the seedy drunken streets of Magaluf visited thinking it was maybe a strip joint. Its a valley, and a beautiful one at that.
Anyone with the ability to read basic English should have perhaps looked at what Butterfly Valley was all about before making such halfwitted reviews. The campsite is available for should anyone want to stay in this wonderful area. Shame there's not a 10 story All Inclusive for the Magalufians.
Saw many butterflies and lizards, and birds. Very peaceful.
I did manage to get to the higher of the waterfalls by climbing up the rock with the rope.
Incredible views from there.
I read an intelligent blog about Butterfly Valley before i went and he said it reminded him of Jurassic Park. I couldn't agree more. The sea is beautiful and warm too.
Well worth the staggeringly outrageous fee of 5TL (£1.80) LOL

“Cute but few butterflies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

I can on a boat tour (definitely recommend that). I assumed it was free but there were 2 men at the 'entrance' of a dirt path charging 5 lira and marking down what boat you came from.
Be sure to be quiet and you may see a butterfly or 2. Or a turtle :)
