Clean tidy and interesting.
Displays are in English as well as French.
Great for families or anyone who isn't in to snorkelling and wants to see some of the local up close.
Entry price was reasonable for the amount of displays

This was a shore tour from our P&O cruise. We only had 45 mins here. Seemed to be a good length of time for most people, but my 13 yr old photographer was in awe. I was fascinated with the flouro coral. The exhibits are small, but really well presented. They've done a great job. Plaques were in French & English. A small but well stocked souvenir store as you finish the aquarium. It was well worth the visit.

Even though the aquarium is smaller and less lavishing to Sydney's aquarium, I believe this aquarium can gives Sydney's a run for its money. They have amazing displays of fishes is big tanks. There's also a dark area where coral are seen I'm there natural light (deep under water where there's no natural light).

Well worth the visit, only costing 1000f for adults. Good place to go when it raining or cold outside.

We were stuck for a rainy day activity and this is a good one. For visitors from Sydney, manage your expectations as the aquarium is very small compared to the Sydney aquarium, but the exhibits are good and it's a great activity if you need to while away an hour or so for a morning or afternoon activity. It's a well priced attraction.

Aquarium des Lagoons should be a compulsory visit, especially if you have kids in tow. It is a small aquarium, but there are fascinating fish and corals on display. Lots of clownfish too!
