Best for Families - Expert review of Palma Aquarium
I’ve always been a bit sceptical of the eco-credentials of aquariums, but this is one exception. Designed to be 100 per cent sustainable a rooftop ‘jungle’ controls much of the delicate manmade eco-system, while the underwater features are split into various oceanic zones: Mediterranean, Oceania, Asia and America. It’s easy to loose a whole morning here mooching about the tanks, watching the antics of strange submarine creatures: my favourites being a pair of canoodling sea dragons. A touch tank allows you to pet starfish, and the like. What the starfish thinks of this I’m not sure, so do urge your little ones to handle with care.
Pricey. Adults 19.50 euros, Ages 4 – 12 15 euros. Under 3s free. Part of this fee goes to various conservation projects so I think it’s worth it. At the moment it’s Save the Bluefin Tuna.
