It is a big place to take a look at species you do not see usually. There is a 'touch touch' area where the kids (and adults) can touch with their hands sea stars and others animals.

Nice aquarium with a lot of fishes and lizards in a wonderful place, close to the city, one of the most beatiful cities in the North of Spain.

All types of beautiful exhibits, and you can even watch the feeding of the various animals (penguins, fish, etc.) located in the premises. Outstanding for all individuals, groups, and activities, but especially appealing to the "little ones". There is also a restaurant located in the...More

Great place for a family day out. Lots to see and tickets include lunch. Situation right on the coast, so easy access to the beach and water straight after. Pros - location, staff, price and animals Cons - parking not free

This is a lovely well kept aquarium in one of my favourite towns in Spain. I had only seen another aquarium (London's) before, and I very much preferred Gijon's one: less busy, not run down at all, and more interesting and beautiful. Also most of...More
