Visiting the aquarium is a must when you are in Malta, it is beautifully layed out and a lot of interesting information. I liked in particular the information and video about how sharks are born and bred and put back into their natural habitat.

It's only down the road from our hotel. Loads of different fish to see. See through tunnel to watch all kinds swim over you. So you can get real close without getting wet.

This is reasonably good, or as good as an aquarium really can be. Probably better than I expected for Malta to be honest. My little boy enjoyed it anyway. Tip- you can get €3 vouchers off in most hotels and from people dotted around near...More

Good price for what it is, lots of fishies. It’s not big and can be completed in an hour but for the price well worth it.
