Theme Parks and Zoos
There are at least ten Theme Parks and Zoo within easy reach, great days out for all the family, especially children. When you get here look in the many English Language papers for details, prices, opening times, etc.
A selection are:
Tivoli World - between Malaga and Fuengirola: A large theme park with rides, shows and theatres - children happily spend all day here.
Aqualand Torremolinas: Another large theme park with up-to-date rides with an aquatic theme.
Parc Aquatico de Mijas: Family friendly waterpark (May to September only)
Crocodile Park - Torremolinos: Over 300 crocodiles (and other animals) at close but safe quarters.
Selwo - a bit further, on the road between Estepona and San Pedro but worth the trip: The site originally planned for Euro Disney, more than 100 hectares of semi-wild environment with animals from 5 continents. A great day out for all ages.
Selwo Marina - Benalmadena: Aquarium with performances by dolphins and sea-lions.
Lobopark - good for children and a pleasant drive a few km along the road to Antequare: Howling wolves, dingoes and other animals in a semi-natural environment - horse riding, petting zoo, tours.
Fuengirola Zoo: "One of the World's Finest Zoos" - and only 5 minutes from the train station.
Sea Life Benalmedina: Claims the largest collection of sharks in Europe.
