Go snorkeling with sea lions and attend a school for mermaids in this waterpark and zoo resort that includes Balinese lodges.
Magic Natura is a vast hotel, zoo and water complex with slides, pools and animal enclosures. It is split into several parts, including Terra Natura, Aqua Natura and Theme Lodges. Join a guided tour of the complex to learn about the welfare of animals and watch the daily training techniques.
Let your children play dress-up in the School of Fairies and Elves, where they’ll also learn about care and conservation of the animals in the park. Bring your toddlers to swim in one of the baby pools, set against the thatched roofs of huts and cabins. Beyond the Polynesian structures rise the red-brown mountains that enclose Benidorm.
Don a snorkel and mask and play games with the sea lions in the pool. In Terra Natura, learn about the innovative zoo immersion concept that allows you to get close to elephants and other majestic animals. Aqua Natura offers all-day waterpark fun.
Relax in the spa area, where you can have an aromatic massage, peel and hydration services or facial treatments. Several restaurants provide international cuisine in the park. Purchase refreshments in La Palapa bar and the Tuvalu 1 and 2 restaurants.
Stay at the upscale lodges in the complex, so you can be first to the pools in the morning. Consider some of the items on sale in the gift shop and get up-to-date information from the 24-hour reception area.
The Terra Natura section is open year round from morning until early evening, every day during warm months and Friday through Sunday during the winter. The Aqua Natura water complex runs from May through October. Receive free entry for the first and second child of large families.
Find Magic Natura in the northern outskirts of Benidorm, a 15-minute drive inland from the beach. Among the neighboring attractions are the Terra Mítica amusement park and the Villaitana golf course.
