Bioparc Fuengirola is a small wildlife park located in the “concrete jungle” of sunny Fuengirola. It was inaugurated in 1978 and reformed in 1999, changing its classic denomination of Zoo of Fuengirola for “Bioparc Fuengirola” in 2010.
The park is dedicated entirely to the conservation of tropical species and adapted to jungle environments, mainly in Asia, Africa and the Indian Islands.
In 2014, the park inaugurated a new habitat called Indo-Pacific, where we can contemplate 15 new species, such as the Komodo Dragon, the largest and poisonous lizard in the world.
We visited in Spring 2017 and it was a big surprise for us because the main entrance is located in a busy Fuengirola Avenue (right in the middle of town) and the wall keep the visitors to fully understand the beautiful environments that you encounter inside. The park is very clean and well kept. All the animals appear healthy, are well looked after and seem very comfortable in their small but rich enclosures.
Like other Bioparcs that we visited (in Valencia and Duoé de La Fontaine) the philosophy is to let you interact with the animals so was a very pleasant to spend 4 hours walking and photographing some very interesting animals. One of the attractions that blow our mind was the walked in the Lemur enclosure with a keeper. We even record it on film and it was an instant hit on your You Tube page.
Only downside.. the park is quite expensive if you visit with the whole family (19,90€ Adults – 14,90 children from 3 to 9) and food prices at the cafe are also prohibitive (€6.50 for a box of 4 nuggets and chips, kids box). Carry a packed lunch if possible. The parking lot is subterranean next to the park but only carry a limited number of cars so also be prepared to struggle for space. The park is handicap friendly but it is constructed on a small hill so be prepared with some rough climbs.
This is a great little zoo, brilliantly designed and well worth a visit!
