Set in an interesting, historic building, this aquarium has something for everybody, from the smallest of fish to Cayman and pre historic horseshoe crabs, not forgetting the vital rescue work they do for local turtles. A trip here is a must - it's very reasonably...More

You can walk from the Park Plaza Verudela beach up the stony path to the aquarium (it is sign posted). Set in a fort the building itself is fascinating. A good way to spend a morning out of the sun.

A nice aquarium built inside an old fortress that it’s full of information at an affordable price. They have almost every type of fish and water creature that can be housed in an normal size aquarium. The sea horses and the sharks are my faves.

Simply , you have to take a local bus 2a or 3a and enjoy the ride to the last stop . At the last stop and get out of the bus and for 3-5 minutes walk you arrive to the Aquarium, just follow the signs
