Sea life centre Benalmadena
Benalmádena's Sea Life Centre is a walk-through underwater park in Benalmadena on the Costa del Sol, which takes you on an stroll along the seabed in a glass tunnel. You pass aquatic species from the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans and the Red Sea. It is an interesting and entertaining voyage of discovery for the whole family. From starfish to stingrays and sharks, and many more exotic species, you can study this fascinating marine life close up. There are 30 tanks in nine different rooms, you see creatures living in a reproduced natural habitat, from above, below and alongside. The journey includes turtles, sharks and moray eels, as well as colourful tropical fish and seahorses. There are also jellyfish and octopuses and a rockpool experience where you can hold a crab and touch a starfish.
Sick and injured sea creatures are nursed back to health here and an exhibition features marine lifeforms dangerous to humans in their undersea habitats.
