not really impressed. there is a bigger aquarium in gouves that has much more things to see. but this one is comfortably located at the center of herosnissos. so we could actually walk there from our hotel.

We went at midday on a Monday too as we were leaving that evening. It was fairly busy but not uncomfortably so. I had a lovely cuddle with a big snake.

Just about 4 km - straight through the main street of Hersonissos and then turn left at the supermarket Halkiadakis. Then we are just 50 m or so up the side street.
