Places in Spain - The Sea Life Centre, Benalmadena (Costa del Sol)

 

One of the attractions that has to be visited in Benalmadena, is the Sea Life Centre which is located next to the marina. One of the first attractions on the agenda as you enter is the tank containing the stingrays. One of the startling things about this display is the closeness of the fish. It is also possible to obtain food which the fish will take from your fingers. As you wander round at a leisurely pace you come across various displays, all of which are accessible and of great interest, especially with the children. The laboratory marino is next with starfish, hermit crabs and many other strange creatures. There are members of staff available to allow closer examination.

 

 

 
As well as the common species of fish, to which we are all familiar, there are some very strange characters, some of which are quite rare. One of the most moving displays is the glass tunnel where you see sharks and stingrays swimming above you. You can feel the fish all around you.

A great deal of thought has gone into the layout of the centre and the emphasis is always on the young ones. One of the areas they will enjoy is the 'songs of the sea' which is a room in which they have to match various sound clips with pictures of sea creatures. The tour finishes in a well stocked shop, a cafe and restaurant that has a large, safe play zone for the youngsters to keep them busy whilst the parents relax. For the adventurous there is an underwater simulator.

Sea Life play a very active role in conservation and are undertaking a great deal of work behind the scenes. They have their own breeding programme for a wide range of species, some of which are released into the sea in order to secure their future.

The centre is very education orientated and has skilled staff who can assist groups of children with talks and feeding displays that evoke the desire to investigate and discover. To aid teachers they also arrange preliminary visits to discuss particular topics and plan study projects. Group discounts are available.
