  • So so so lovely here! Situated in a perfect place and it's huge! We had so much fun here, I recommend to anyone visiting Malta. Its great for families too. There is a restaurant next door albeit expensive. The guides are lovely too and the staff want to do nothing but help and inform.
  • Brilliant time here with a 10yr old whilst on holiday. Lots to see and we spent a good couple of hours here. Delighted by the jelly fish and the clown fish.. also a unicorn fish?? We had a discount voucher so it was even better value!
  • Beautiful aquarium. Lots of activities. Kids loved the mini sized tunnel. Nice play area outside and right next to the coast and can walk along the rocky beach. Excellent cafe inside as well.
  • A very decent aquarium at a decent price. All the fish, animals and creatures seemed well looked after and the whole aquarium and surrounding area and cafeteria was very clean. Lots of information about all the fish and mammals on an ipad computer system and very easy to understand.
  • Completely mobility friendly. Wide access doors and lifts to required levels. Good disabled parking. Only downside , local area pavements have very high curbs, but they can be conversed with a bit of will. My wife used a small pavement scooter, and had no issues at all.
