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.

Visited the butterfly park whilst on holiday in Malaga. It is quite small but an amazing experience. The butterflies and moths were flying around and it was such a special feeling to be that close to them. One landed on my daughter's top. All species, colours and varieties. It is very tropical so the temperature is warm. We didn't hear the talk but we were able to read about the butterflies. It was well worth the visit. We travelled on the train from Malaga but was slightly confused about the bus route so took a taxi from the train station.

Great place. Very interesting to hear all about the butterflies. Not scarey as I thought it may have been. Also reptiles.

This a lovely place to spend an hour or two if you like to admire beauty and think conservation. However be warned as it is quite warm in there about 30 degrees and 80% humidity but well worth it. With over a thousand butterflies and some moths (which are just resting in the day) there is an amazing diversity of size and colour. All this is set in what you might call a tropical jungle of plants, with waterfall and koi carp pool. Every so often one of the employees gives a short take in English and Spanish about the life cycle of these beautiful butterflies. As well as the usual gift shop there is a small cafe attached which does reasonable priced snacks and drinks. A small eating area outside provides a welcome cooling off area to enjoy lunch before returning inside for a further visit if that is what you want to do. Very easy to get to on the bus up from Benalmádena which costs about €1.55 per adult. After all that there is a large open area outside the park which gives extensive views of the Mediterranean coast and towns. Well worth a visit.

Having been caught out by a spell of heavy rain whilst exploring Benalmadena Pueblo, we went into the Butterfly Park and spent an hour and a half totally enthralled with the place. The variety and colours of the butterflies was wonderful with plenty of information about their life cycle. This is well worth a visit.
