    • 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

    I enjoyed this much more than I believe I would have! So much to see and it was not crowded so we could really take our time enjoying all the aquariums and displays. I learned so much!! Don't worry if you don't speak or read French, you can read the English translations. And bonus, there's plenty to see right outside the aquarium!

    Good location, but the inside was just sad. Animals did not have enough space.

    Really enjoyable visit. The new control’s for entry we’re in place which perhaps reduced the number of visitors but maybe this was an advantage. The numerous tanks were very well presented and...
