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.

Didn't really know what to expect but it exceeded the expectations in the end. Not too much to do but kids were happy and if you use hop on hop off bus to get there it's worth to visit for sure.

Loved it here. Big butterflies flying all around you, landing on you. It is very much like a rain forest in here, warm & humid. They also have some animals there, which makes it more interesting. It's all just so relaxing, and very interesting.

Loved it as did my 15 year old son. Beautiful and actually educational for me as well as my son. Buddhist Stupa across the road should also be visited.

We were really looking forward to this visit while in Benalmadena so we're disappointed with our visit. The park itself is a little out of the way but we got the bus up. The area itself was smaller than we expected and there didn't seem...More

It´s quite expensive (10E/person), but it´s very nice to see those wonderful butterflies around us. Besides butterflies, we can also see 2 turtles, fishes and one iguana.

Well, where are you traveling from? But the taxi is not too expensive. Any taxi driver knows the location and therefore can give you a rough idea of the cost, just ask .... Hope I’ve been helpful?

Nearest bus stop is at the Buddhist Temple which can be viewed from all around. (It's also well worth a visit at the same time as you go to Butterfly World). Alternatively, just ask the bus driver to give you a shout... More
