  • We came for the fish, so while the history part was good, we just kind of skimmed that part. The aquarium part is great. Really beautiful fish and presentation, and the tube is awesome. I do think...  more »

  • 360 viewing, amazing. Good for all mobilities as has lift and accessible toilets. 13€ good entry price, great to know history as well as see local fish and tropical too. Gift shop can do with a swerve as not a lot to choose from.
  • Great idea for families with kids It was a fun visit for myself and my boyfriend even though I'm pretty sure the younger visitors were much more excited than we were. Don't get me wrong the Aquarium is great, not massive (so not tiring) and very interesting. There is also a lovely giftshop for a few souvenirs on the way out. Just not my cup of tea... They have a beautifully set-up restaurant with great reviews and gorgeous views to the sea but we didn't stay for lunch.
