We are located in the heart of the Costa del Sol and only 20 minutes from Malaga. In this spectacular Thai temple, you can walk amongst more than 1,500 exotic butterflies from around the world, flying freely in a tropical paradise between waterfalls and flowers. You will be able to observe how they are born, how they reproduce and enjoy learning many things about these wonderful insects.

This place is absolutely beautiful - it's a little out of the way, but you won't regret going there. It's not huge, but it's landscaped to perfection - waterfalls, bridges, trees, plants - a smashing habitat for the butterflies. Several landed on us during our...More

Lovely place to visit. Not only do you get to see a lot of beautiful butterflies, you get to see how the metamorphosis works and there are also moths and other animals, like a wallaby, iguanas, turtels, birds and fish. I really recommend this place.

Hot and humid inside, but well worth visiting...especially if you're a butterfly fan like I am. Easy to find, and some lovely gifts in the shop.

We came here with our 8 year old daughter who loved it. Did not realise there were so many different types of butterflies! Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

We visited with three generations of our family & everyone enjoyed the visit. The quiz to find the species really helped to keep the children engaged. The talk was perfect; concise; informative and engaging. Parking is excellent. Well worth a visit.

Well, where are you traveling from? But the taxi is not too expensive. Any taxi driver knows the location and therefore can give you a rough idea of the cost, just ask .... Hope I’ve been helpful?

Nearest bus stop is at the Buddhist Temple which can be viewed from all around. (It's also well worth a visit at the same time as you go to Butterfly World). Alternatively, just ask the bus driver to give you a shout... More
