It is a beautiful place, but for the price approximately 10 euros the visit is short lived. But as soon as we push the front door we are delighted.

Remember this is just a small island! There is nothing wrong with this aquarium. It is very nicely laid out and although it is small, you can... More

Way afmaker than I expected but has probably all the fishes from around here ... some huge ones that really surprised me. Very informative and well organized. One hour is more than enough to spend there. I'm not sure though how happy are three fishes there ... they seamed cramped, would be much better to increase by a lot the... More

Went as we found it by chance while stopping for lunch. A little expensive but well done if not that large. Good overall selection of sea life as well as fish and a good hours visit.

Located amid the marinas this is a surprisingly good aquarium. Well laid out and well displayed. The marine collection is impressive and appesrs to be a family favorite. If you are padding by this way set yourself at least 1 hour to just immerse yourself in an underwater wonderland
