To drive to the aquarium, take the Mediterranean motorway to exit 222, then follow the signs to Puerto deportivo de Benalmádena and onto the Avenue Antonio Machado; head toward Torremolinos, and you will find the Marina roundabout access. SEA LIFE is at the end of Alay Avenue.

Benalmádena, on the Costa del Sol, is a very family-friendly destination. After a day exploring SEA LIFE Benalmádena, stop by the Butterfly Park of Benalmádena or lounge on Carvajal Beach. Alternatively, you can visit Fuengirola’s Bioparc or take a ride on the Magic Vision Boat for a chance to see dolphins in the wild; combo tickets offer entry to SEA LIFE and either of these attractions.
