Costa del Sol is famous for its fantastic weather and the great amount of tourist attractions available.
Many of you might already know that in Fuengirola we have one of the best zoos in Spain, though you might not be aware that very close in Benalmadena, right beside Parque de la Paloma, you can find the only dolphinarium and penguinarium in Andalusia. This attraction is called Selwo Marina and it is one of the most popular and visited on Costa del Sol.
Although its facilities are not massive there you will be able to see many interesting species like dolphins, sea lions, exotic birds, small monkeys or giant turtles.
The most popular exhibitions are the dolphin and sea lion one, and also the penguin feeding. The dolphin and sea lion exhibitions are at 12:00 P.M, 2:00 P.M and 5:00 P.M and the penguin feeding is at 1:00 P.M and 4:00 P.M.
If you fancy visiting this great place you might be interested in knowing that you can avoid queuing at the ticket office by getting your ticket easily at our reception.
Selwo Marina is open daily from 10:00 A.M to 6:00 P.M though during Easter (from the 14th to the 20th of April) as they receive more visitors it will be open from 10:00 A.M to 8:00 P.M.
Getting there it is quite simple thanks to the train line that goes along Costa del Sol. You only have to get on it at Los Boliches stop and get off at the Arroyo de la Miel (Benalmádena) station.
After what we just told you might be willing to visit Selwo Marina during your stay at Hotel Ángela …you will surely love it!
