  • Beautiful aquarium presenting sea life from all over the planet. You can easily spend several hours here. It's possible to touch different fish in the 'touching' pools. Relax in front of the big aquarium. Would advise to come on a week day outside school vacations. And come at 10 when they open. Plenty of parking available nearby at fair price. The restaurant Tang there is also nice with a great view of the sea and nice food.
  • A very interesting place with a lot of pretty and unique fish. Options to pet both local and tropical fishes. Very good place to go with children, as they also have a great playground and dedicated indoor area for people bringing boxed lunches. Tends to be overcrowded.
