3.3
#2 of 14 in Zoos & Aquariums in Andalucia
See marine animal shows and educational exhibits at Selwo Marina. Dolphins and sea lions are the main attractions here--either watch them in one of their daily performances or get up close through an arranged encounter. Head to the Penguinarium for penguin feedings. In the Amazon-themed exhibit, crane your neck to see tropical birds, such as macaws, cockatoos, and grey parrots, fly overhead. Monkeys, turtles, crocodiles, snakes, fish, and lizards also live throughout the park. A limited number of visitors can book the dolphin and sea lion encounters so sign up in advance.

  • A great day out to see all there animals. If you get too warm I recommend the penguin house. Dolphin shows and parrot shows throughout the day. Food is overpriced but if you want a decent meal there thats not fast food head back towards the doorway and into the cafe, go further in to the left and there is a large restaurant thats easily missable
  • Lovey place for kids. Dolphins are amazing. But very expensive in d shops in there. Only downside. but what zoo isn't!!
  • Wonderful getting in with the dolphins. Very clean. Lovely day out for the kids. Very expensive!!
  • Good park! Pricing is good how you can get a joint ticket with the cable car.
  • The dolphin show was great. That was the best thing about Selwo Marina. Its only done once every few hours so be sure to watch it if you visit. The rest of the animal displays where not soo good compared to any sealife centre in the UK

Where to stay in Benalmadena

The beautiful coastline of Benalmadena are lined with an array of all-inclusive resorts and hotels that offer doorstep access to the area's famous beaches. Leading down from the resorts, you will find the lively marina that offers a range of daily activities and restaurants. If you are looking for a more traditional experience, choose to stay in Benalmadena Pueblo, a white-washed village set on a hillside overlooking the coast. Here you will find an array of tapas bars and local shops that are not overrun with tourists and still only a short walk to the marina and surrounding beaches.
