A very nice aquarium. Convenient parking, correct Corona protocols. People who appreciate well-preserved, REAL coral riffs will absolutely love this place. Don't just run through it, sit down, lean back, read the signs and enjoy. Some things can be done a little bit better. But all in all a great experience, highly recommend.
We visited today and the aquarium is really impressive. It's huge and has many exhibits and a lot of sea animals to discover. It was not busy when we visited (on a Friday). They really took good measurements against covid-19. There is disinfectant gel everywhere and we saw people cleaning all the time. Note though the restaurants are currently closed so bring your own picnic. We spent approx 5 hours here.
