A Christmas Full of Surprises at all Three of Selwo’s Costa del Sol Parks & Attractions

Christmas at Selwo Parks & AttractionsAll three of Selwo’s Costa del Sol parks and attractions (Selwo Marina, Selwo Aventura and the Benalmádena Cable Car) have put together a magical events and entertainment programme for this Christmas.

Until the 6th January, each of the parks and attractions will offer themed events, magical characters and exhibitions for kids.

Apparently, all children (aged 3 to 9 years) who visit any of the 3 parks over the Christmas period will receive a special gift: A kid’s season ticket which grants them unlimited free access to all the Selwo parks during 2015. So what’s the catch? Well, they need to be accompanied by an adult paying the full entrance price.

Here’s a quick summary of the surprises you can expect at each of the parks over Christmas: Continue Reading →

A Summer Night’s Dream at Selwo Marina Dolphinarium

Selwo Marina Nights

Music under the stars...

The warm summer evenings on the Costa del Sol become a little more bearable with the fantastic evening exhibition which our friends at Selwo Marina have prepared for this summer.

As from last Saturday 16th July – and until the 31st August – visitors to this magical park will be able to enjoy a spectacular dolphin exhibition accompanied by a selection of classic and contemporary melodies. A violin and saxophone duet will play tunes that’ll have the spectators and the stars of the show – Zeus, Tonet, Rumbo, Astro, Romeo and Bravo (Selwo’s dolphin family) dancing under the stars!

The music and dolphin acrobatics will be accompanied by a specially designed show of light and colour which will fill the night sky.

The show starts at 10:30pm every evening and is priced at €20 per adult and €15 per child (aged 3 to 9 years); however, we recommend you take advantage of the great special offer available which allows you to enjoy access to the dolphin show and a meal at one of the parks fast food outlets for just €2 more per person; that’s a total of €22 for adults and €17 for children. 🙂

If you’d like more information, please ask at the Sunset Beach Club leisure desk located on the 6th floor of the hotel.

Selwo Marina and Selwo Aventura Open for the New Season

Selwo AventuraTwo of our favourite attractions on the Costa del Sol, Selwo Marina Dolphinarium and Selwo Aventura will be opening for the new season today (Friday 24th February 2012).

After a well earned winter break, these popular parks are ready to delight visitors with their unique facilities.

Selwo Marina Dolphinarium, located just minutes away from Sunset Beach Club, will be celebrating their 10th anniversary this year. Special activities will be planned throughout the season to celebrate, so visiting the park is a must if you are visiting theCosta del Sol 🙂

Selwo Aventura, the wildlife adventure park located near Estepona (Approx. 1 hour drive from Sunset Beach Club) also opens to the public today. In a constant effort to reinvent the visitor experience, Selwo Aventura will be introducing new species and animals to their, already impressive, wildlife family. Here’s a quick list of the new attractions:

  • Two new Hippos – Margarita and Manolito (can’t get more Spanish than that!! ) – have been brought to the park in the hope that they’ll be able to add to the parks population with a little Manolito Hippo! The Masai Mara area of the park has been especially prepared to welcome the two Hippos and to make sure they feel at home.
  • HyenaTerritoryis one of the new installations which will be introduced this season. This is perfect opportunity to learn more about this roaming carnivore, vital for the African ecosystem.
  • The newLionTerritory. Located in the main village area of Selwo Aventura, this new feature will allow visitors to see the King of the Jungle up close!
  • The “Reserva de losLagos” area of the park will be the new home of the Sitatunga (don’t worry, I had to look it up too 😉 it’s a type of antelope) another African species.

If you are planning on visiting Sunset Beach Club for a holiday – and especially if you have kids –  make sure you include Selwo Marina Dolphinarium and Selwo Aventura on your list of ‘Places to see’, you’ll have a blast!
