Right in the center of Benalmádena's port, Puerto Marina, there's a unique aquarium, the Sea Life Aquarium. Who'd have thought that it could hide so much treasure. Take a look for yourself.
What to expect at the Sea Life Aquarium
A visit to the Sea Life Aquarium is an unforgettable experience for the whole family, stimulating the interest of children and adults alike. You will encounter almost every type of sea creature imaginable, and be amazed at how much has been packed into this modest-looking building.
This unique interactive aquarium takes visitors on a journey through the world of colorful fish, darting seahorses, frozen in stillness, proud Moray eels and sea turtles.
Children will recognize the orange-and-white Nauti, with his blue-and-yellow companion, both of them known to us from the film Finding Nemo.
