    • 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 !

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

    It’s nice that people have to wear mask and disinfect their hands but at the other hand there was a moments when we were packed like sardines in small spaces inside with people. And the animals there could have little bit bigger space for existing as well.

    Just wanted to see the external architecture, evocative of another age and time. Classic!
