Paloma Park – covering some 200,000 sq.m and only 300m from the coast – has numerous walkways, two large children’s playground and a large lake with turtles, ducks, swans etc. It has a variety of animals that are very tame wandering about including rabbits, peacocks, goats, ostriches and guinea pigs. It’s a great place for a picnic as you can use all the grassy areas available or there are three cafes offering snacks and drinks. If coming from the coast it is 200m uphill from the ‘windmill’ roundabout on the old coast road (Avenida Machado), there is also an entrance opposite Selwo Marina. Free entry and plenty of parking around the perimeter of the park.

LOCATION: Avenida Federico Garcia Lorco, Benalmadena (about 200m uphill from the ‘windmill’ roundabout on Avenida Machado)
