Aquarium de Biarritz showcases more than 500 forms of sea life, many from the nearby Bay of Biscay. Since the 1930s, visitors have been coming here to learn about underwater ecology, exploring 50 aquariums that also feature species from the Caribbean and the Pacific and Indian oceans. Be sure to check out the shark tank--the largest of its kind in Europe--offering striking views of these predators alongside rays and barracudas. Ask about times for the seal feedings, where you can see the animals in action.

  • Nice art deco building but the aquarium itself isn't very large. Still nice but we went there just to shelter from cold :) And to get our children interested in something ;) I mean the place is good but there are other aquariums in the world that are much more interesting. Must see for all art deco lovers
  • This is one of the most beautiful buildings in Biarritz and one of the best aquariums in the world. It was inaugurated in 1935 and it is an Art Déco piece of art. Its main aim is to show the ocean in all its forms. Your visit begins in the aquariums where you can appreciate conger eels, octopuses, seahorses and a multitude of other species, all in a magical atmosphere. There is a beautiful gallery o skeletons and reconstructed models of cetaceans,whales, killer whales and dolphins. You also have the underwater seal observatory as well as the terrace where you can see them resting or being feed at specific hours. The variety is huge, so take your time or go one night..it is the perfect hour to visit this fantastic place.
  • Nice little aquarium. Very high standard of displays. Big shark tank etc
  • Great place to visit. There are also several photos of the place/Biarritz from old times. Very interesting.
  • Wonderful aquarium. very nicely architected with a large history section too. Ideal for the odd rainy day in Biarritz
