We are located in the heart of the Costa del Sol and only 20 minutes from Malaga. In this spectacular Thai temple, you can walk amongst more than 1,500 exotic butterflies from around the world, flying freely in a tropical paradise between waterfalls and flowers. You will be able to observe how they are born, how they reproduce and enjoy learning many things about these wonderful insects.

It's €10 a person and although not exactly massive, was well worth an hour. There were actually many butterflies and other animals. If you have children and it's raining/cloudy it's well worth a trip. It's also next to the Thai stupa and also worth a...More

I have seen many butterfly parks in Asia, Australia and New Zealand so I have a good basis of comparison. The Benalmadena Butterfly Park is by far the best I have visited. Firstly the range of species flying is large and varied - there are...More

We stopped off here on our way to Mijas, I love butterflies so this was perfect! There isn't much to see except the butterflies and the guide gives a 5 minute speech every hour. You aren't in very long so €10 is a bit much....More

The park itself is quite small but don't be alert - it is still worth every cent of €10 you will pay. If you are there at the right time you can hear a member of staff telling you a stories and facts about butterflies...More
