We enjoyed the aquarium, despite the size. Yes it is small but the fish were interesting and our daughter enjoyed watching them especially in the big tank. There was also a nice collection of shells on display. Some really pretty ones there. The big tank...More

I visited this place to kill some time whilst my husband did a walk,it's really nice to visit but way too small,for a family it's just wouldn't entertain them for long enough.

Not quite what we expected! It's limited, you start and make it to the end faster than you think unfortunately but the big tank with the sharks and rays in is spectacular. We paid €7 each and it took about 20 minutes. I'm afraid that...More

A very small aquarium. We visisted the natural pools and checked out the aquarium just because it was there. Too pricey for such a small attraction.

Nice enough setting. Good stock of fish and sea creatures by with the expected behaviours seen in captivity.....pricey as you can't really stretch it to more than 20 minutes.

The aquarium is small and not worth the 7 Eur entrance fee. It only takes about 10 min. to do a tour of it.

Small sea aquarium. Very nice for a short visit or a little longer if you want to sit and observe the fish in front and above you and picture yourself admits the fish under water ;)

I recommend this small well stocked aquarium. Lovely seating area if you'd like to sit back and watch the fish. Great family attraction. It doesn't take long to walk through and can easily be done within an hour if you're rushed.

Being a tourist aswell as having a interest in nature & wildlife the aquarium was on my to do list. Fair enough, what is there is good but there isn't much at all! If you've been to one aquarium you've been to better. Unless you...More

Small but ok, for a little island is a good stop to see around 50 species and is clear and clean the water. Not bad
