Selwo Marina is a park dedicated mainly to marine fauna. It is located in the centre of Benalmadena, next to the Parque de la Paloma and 500 metres from the seafront promenade.

Therefore, due to its location, it is ideal for a family visit, as it can be easily reached on foot.

We also recommend a visit to the Parque de la Paloma. It´s a leafy and charming park with a pond and several children’s areas, which invites you to take a walk or have a picnic. The park is notable for its many animals in semi-freedom that can be seen from close, ideal for children. There is also a bar for refreshments.
