We were just at the coast and visited the aquarium which re-opened at the weekend after being closed for over a year. It's not on the same scale as the Cape Town Two Oceans Aquarium, but it's a really good way to spend an hour or so, and especially if you have children with you. It's also an interesting introduction to the Atlantic ocean environment.
Nothing much has changed, just a generally clean up and renovation, but they do now have around 6 kids computer screens upstairs with touch-interactive displays giving information about the aquarium as well as puzzles and quizzes.
Well worth a visit, especially if the coastal fog is taking some time to lift! It's open from 10am until 4pm, feeding time is at 3pm.
