From the Classic to the Exotic...

The Costa del Sol has a wide variety of distinctively themed parks – from animals and sea life to more traditional park attractions – providing entertainment for all members of the family.

Theme Parks - Bioparc Fuengirola

Bioparc Fuengirola

An urban jungle offering unexpectedly attractive surprises... This benchmark immersion zoo (and reproduction centre for endangered species) – with barriers virtually invisible to the naked eye and a careful recreation of the tropical forests of Madagascar, Equatorial Africa and Southeast Asia – is home to 1,300 animals representing around 140 different species. In July and August, Bioparc stays open until midnight.

Sea Life Benalmádena

Offering perhaps the widest range of sea species on the Costa del Sol, this marine park features a glass underwater tunnel that enables you get up close and personal with underwater creatures capable of moving you a little further down the food chain.

Theme Parks - Crocodile Park

Crocodile Park

Doing exactly as it says on the box, the park is home to more than 300 species of crocodile and other reptiles – next door to Aqualand Torremolinos. Fortunately, there are no plans to combine the two parks!

Theme Parks - Benalmádena Butterfly Park

Benalmádena Butterfly Park

This attraction offers a more sedate wildlife experience if you are a little tired of being close to fang-toothed beasts. Located near an imposing Buddhist temple, it provides visitors with the opportunity of walking among more than 1,500 exotic butterflies from all over the world as they fly freely around a tropical paradise featuring waterfalls and a profusion of colourful flowers.

Theme Parks - Teleférico Benalmádena

Teleférico Benalmádena

Another great family outing – as long as you don’t mind heights. The cable car takes you from the town, over the busy N340 highway and up to the peak of Mount Calamorro. Once at the top, in addition to the amazing vistas, there is a café serving cool drinks, hiking routes for the more adventurous, an open-air planetarium and a birds of prey exhibition.

Shopping Centres

More fun in the numerous shopping centres on the Costa del Sol. These offer more entertainment options beyond cinemas and games rooms.

This is the case of the La Cañada shopping centre (Marbella) or the Miramar shopping centre (Fuengirola), the last mentioned has a karting circuit on its terrace..
