  • Had a lovely day here. Room for improvement but still an enjoyable day. Some amazing birds there. A few more animals needed. Great break from the beach.
  • A nice way to spend a few hours if you're fed up with lying on the beach (I am after 5 minutes). It seems to be a well-run small zoo with lots of things to keep kids amused, and our grandson loved it. Only 4 stars because €10 seems very expensive to feed a few leaves to a giraffe.
  • Utterly amazing!! We got to feed a 15 week old tiger and the giraffes. Best day out and can't recommend enough!! Lots to see. Lots of birds though which became a bit boring. It's worth the visit just for the giraffe experience. Unfortunately they have retired the baby tiger as he's getting a bit too big now for bottle feeding.
  • It is a lovely place to walk around. Lots of animals to look at. Although some of the cages seem a bit on the small side. There is no picnic area and there is not many shaded areas to stand or sit.
  • Very nice zoo, you can feed giraffes and birds for extra payment. Parrot show is entertaining.
