Selwo Marina - Benalmadena
Selwo Marina offers a new concept in family entertainment, bringing together sea life and the Amazon in an unusual but happy combination. The Marina is a complement to Selwo Adventure wildlife park in Estepona.
Visit the Dolphinarium and see the dolphins and sea lions; at Ice Island, the penguins live in a specially cooled environment, similar conditions to conditions in their native Antarctica.
At Amazonia you can see animals and plants from the tropical jungle in South America which plays host to half the flora and fauna species on the planet. The first room has birds and amphibians (including poisonous frogs), and the second more amphibians, as well as fish, reptiles (look out for piranhas and a three-metre anaconda) and insects, notably leaf-cutter ants. Both have lush vegetation, featuring 40 plant species including orchids and bromeliads. You can play multimedia games and learn about the ecosystems of South America and the dangers of climate change.
In La Hondonada you can see exotic birds such as cockatoos, macaws and parrots.
There is a range of restaurants and shops in the park.
