“Reunion Aquarium”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

It is a very nice aquarium that shows all the types of fish of the area. Unfortunately there is no English names. All is in French and the scientific names. So, not very helpful in identifying any fish if you don't understand French.

“Very colorful, a great aquarium”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

This aquarium may be a bit small, but it boasts a large selection of reef fish, even shark. The exhibits are organized in a series of smaller tanks, which subtly encourages people to keep moving, so it doesn't feel too crowded. There are also educational section which explain the reef's ecosystem, fish reproduction, etc, and some parts are very kid friendly.
Perhaps not a "must do", but if you're in the area, and a place to grab a break from the scorching heat of high summer (the place has an efficient AC), this is a nice place to visit.
