    • In the very centre of Biarritz, facing the Rocher de la Vierge, the Aquarium de Biarritz opens its doors to you for an original discovery of the sea bed. About fifty aquariums are waiting for you!

      You start the visit in front of the aquariums of the Bay of Biscay : jellyfish, octopus, seahorses... discover the species that inhabit our Atlantic coast ! After a plunge into the past through collections (gallery of cetaceans and history of fishing in the Basque Country), you enter the turtle and ray cave for a surprising face-to-face encounter…

      Highlight of the visit : at 10:30 am or 5 pm, on the panoramic terrace, attend the entertainment around the seal meal !

      Then find the mangrove swamp and its mangroves as well as an 11m long coral reef! Fish with original colours and improbable shapes fly before your eyes !

      The giant aquarium of 1.5 million litres of water where 7 species of sharks, rays, barracudas, Napoleon fish evolve, is a breathtaking spectacle !
      To restore you, a snack bar is at your disposal from April to October !

      Open all year round

    Interesting mixture of aquarium and maritime museum. History of fishing and whaling is important to show the impact these have had. Spread across 5 levels. Good for families with kids. A few documentaries where screened during our visit. Amazing views from the rooftop and upper levels. Restaurant and cafe were closed when we visited though. Museum shop on site with branded products for kids and gifts for adults.

    Got to see sea lions and many other fish and mammals. They do feed the sea lions at certain times per schedule. There is a giant tank with sharks, sea turtles and so so much more. Tons to see, very similar to Shedd Aquarium in Chicago but smaller. Place to eat and drink also. Highly recommended!

    Very friendly staff at reception - the woman who served us was very gentil and kind, by far the kindest person I have met in the Basque Country so far. The aquarium was clean - they had a good display of the sea life and local history within their museum. I would say, that it is very similar to the Atlantis in Dubai. Although you can’t touch any of the sea life and the animation wasn’t great… Though I do recommend it.

  • "Great for a rainy day. Better than London Aquarium and half the price!"

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by AnaOrchid (London) on 11/11/2022

    Really well looked after and displays/tanks particularly impressive. The sharks and rays were in the most amazing tank that can be viewed from all angles.
