It is lovely to have butterflies flying all around you. they have all exotic types and the different stages of metamorphosis. They also have some small exotic animals and reptiles. It is a very tranquil experience. Worth a visit

Nice place to bring your family or actually quite romantic if you bring your date. The largest butterfly that exists is exposed in this little butterfly arena.

The Butterfly’s garden of Benalmadena with 2,000 square meters is the largest space dedicated to the butterflies in Europe. The area comprises a butterfly’s tropical garden with over 900 square meters. In the garden area fly about 1,500 butterflies from tropical areas worldwide. As their average life length is only 2-3 weeks, in the garden you can always find new species. Throughout the year there are more than 150 different species.
Because many species breed in the park itself, in addition to the butterflies you may see other phases of their life cycle as eggs and caterpillars, or behaviors such as delicate bridal dances and mating.

Entrance fee ranges between 5 and 8.50 €. Photographs are permitted. Disabled accessible.

How to get there:
By Bus: L2 (Benalmádena), M 112 (Malaga-Mijas) and M121 (Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Mijas)
By train: RER Malaga, Benalmádena station-Arroyo de la Miel. At the door of the station is the bus that takes you to butterfly, L 2, stop “Tibetan Stupa”
