Interesting visit which is basically the same as many other aquaria, but always nice to see different fish. Always a good place if the weather isn't too good. Price reasonable, good route round.

We didn't have high expectations of this aquarium based partly on TA reviews and the fact that it's situated in a small town in Malta, and not a major town in a much bigger country, with the resources this would bring. We found the tanks...More

The place is really beautiful and you can see a lot of sea creatures. All tanks have separate displays with fish descriptions. A must visit if you come to Malta!

Some very interesting fish and well laid out. The tunnel of fish was particularly good as I really liked the fish swimming above me. The restaurant seemed a little bit expensive.

Although a good choice if the weather does get bad, this is a lovely way to while away some time. Good for all ages and with a lovely restaurant on site.

It's open all year round from 10:00am sharp till 8:00pm. If you're planning to take a trip on one of the Open-Top bus's, do that first as they have tokens on their tickets that give you €3.00 off the entrance fee at the... More
