  • Went in the day when it was raining. came to the opening, and passed without a queue. But when left turn observed hours on 2. The Aquarium itself is something outstanding. But generally interesting. There are audio guides. Something unusual in principle was not in the Aquarium. Sharks, octopuses, rays, large and small fish.

  • Compared to Barcelona's Moscow-nonsense, 3 times less. But overall not bad. An hour and a half more than enough. During this time, the children manage to all obbegat))

  • Really liked the undersea walk, loads of creatures to see. The sharks were my favourite, but beware because you can only see them once in the walk! The cafe in the building had a good selection, but didn't reheat food thoroughly enough and we had to leave some behind.
  • Great place to visit and right by the beach. Some lovely clean tanks and lots of different species. Only downside was the sineage could be better. It was very dark and hard to read the information. 9€ for adult and 6€ for under 17. I think under 5's were free. There's a cafe here too. If you are looking to do something on a non beach day, it's a good place to visit.
  • If you have the time then this is a place worth visiting. It is well laid out with a fantastic array of fish and other sea creatures. My favourite was watching the turtle. Great place for all the family.
  • Decent day out, in the middle of nowhere but kind of makes it more unique. Loads of tanks and you can probably spend about 2 hours there. Nice way to spend some time out of the heat!
  • A great place to visit with your children. Nice variety of marine life forms in a well maintained facility. You can buy discounted tickets at the nearest buss stop (which is 10 minutes of walking away).
