The Mediterranean Sea, and specifically the Alborán Sea, on the coast of Málaga, is a destination that attracts all kinds of visitors, a great variety of marine fauna, including dolphins! The magnificent temperature of its waters and the richness of its seabed make this sea a wonderful habitat for many species, and the influx of the Atlantic Ocean makes it a good place for the passage of many cetaceans.
The presence of these cetaceans is so close to the coasts that dolphins can be spotted from a boat just a few kilometers deep, with the coast of Málaga being a very important place for dolphin watching in the wild.

The best time to spot dolphins in Benalmádena
It is important to note that dolphins cannot be spotted year-round in Benalmádena. The best time to see dolphins is in the summer months, between June and September, when weather conditions are more favorable and dolphins are more active. During this time of year, the waters are warmer and calmer, making dolphins more visible and active on the water’s surface.
However, it is important to note that since they are in their natural habitat, the presence of dolphins cannot be guaranteed 100%, although it is very likely that you will spot them.
