We visited with two small kids, we all loved it. It happened that we were there practically by ourselves the whole time and enjoyed exploring it in peace, at our own leisure. Calming, mesmerizing and educational. The place is clean, spacious and the animals do seem to be looked after well (though I do understand the difficulty with enclosures of these kind). All in all, we thought it was very much worth visiting. Thank you!
Had a wonderful moment, everything well organized. By the sharks aquarium, audio to guide the visitors explaining all kinds of fishes and characteristics... I surely advise, magnific place to visit. Thank you aquarium de Biarritz Best regards
Nice aquarium, with local and exotic fish. We spent about 2,5 hours here on a very busy day. While there were crowded areas we could still see everything and there were plenty of wider spaces and spots to sit down and look at the larger tanks. Information is mainly in French, but in most places also in English and Spanish (though smaller and not always easy to read with people in front of it)
Too crowded for the small spaces in the place, half the peoples would be enough. The aquariums are nice, especially the shark tank. Sadly most descriptions are only in French, We went by bike, so no stress with parking. Would recommend, but only in less busy hours, we went at 1300.
An excellent experience for kids and adults. Good value for money. All explanations in English and Spanish too. Highly recommended.
