An impressive aquarium. The sharks are the highlight, as usual. You get close to them and can walk underneath them in a glass tunnel. The aquarium is not over-priced. Other exhibits are interesting and attractive.

I had a nice time viewing the fish and ocean life but if you don't speak or read French, you won't understand or know what you're looking at since there is no English or any other language being displayed.

Biarritz is a real gem of France, and everyone wants to be outside here every minute. However, the aquarium is one of the nicest in the world and perfect for that rare rainy day in Biarritz, enjoy!

It's a nice aquarium with a range of sea animals. Perfect for kids, adults, families and couples alike. The price is good value for money and it's a great location. We personally loved watching the sea lions basking in the sun.

The aquarium is not overall big but is ok for young children. There are lifts so you can bring a buggy. There is a lot of information in it and museum like which is not great if you don't speak French and not very interesting...More

Not best in the market, but at least a good visit for a rainy day. Just a little overpriced but quite good. A lot of species and good selection of different zones. Building is also a good visit itself and good design of space.
