Palma Aquarium is located on the coast of Palma de Mallorca, and is an excellent choice for a family day out. The Mediterranean Sea offers many treasures, which you can discover thanks to the 25 aquariums offered by the park, home to all kinds of species such as star-fish, sea horses, sea-bass and much more. You can even interact with some of the sea creatures. Through the Toca-toca activity, you can find out about the different animals, their texture, what they eat and where they live. Plus, you can also observe a large number of corals and anemones spread throughout the aquarium.
Moreover, the park has a large garden where you can enjoy a pleasant walk watching the sea turtles, while the little ones enjoy the playgrounds, with bouncy castles and water fountains. It also has a large jungle where you can find a 7-metre-high waterfall and exotic animals such as the Amazonian piranha or the alligator turtle. Finally, you can recharge your batteries at the different Mediterranean food outlets and summer bars, such as Mediterra and Oasis.
Palma Aquarium faithfully recreates the habitats and ecosystems of the world’s seas and oceans in order to contribute to the understanding and admiration for the beauty of the marine world and to encourage interaction with the various species.
The 55 pools hold 5 million litres of salt water, as well as more than 8,000 specimens of almost 700 species to be found among the fauna and flora of the Mediterranean Sea and the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
Palma Aquarium gives you the chance to discover both local and tropical marine fauna, to learn the history and curious facts about the aquatic world and to take part in various activities that are adapted to both adults and children. From diving with sharks and rays for big ones (for those 8 years and older) to snorkelling for smaller ones (from 3 years upwards). The park has facilities designed for everyone, and allows you to enjoy a break in the bar while the kids enjoy climbing and playing in the slides of the soft-play area (Nautilius Park). We can also organize school outings and events with entertainment, such as birthdays or even baptisms and communions.
Enjoy all the activities offered by the park, such as sleeping with sharks, one of the most outstanding experiences that will stay with you for the rest of your life. This original way to spend the night is a great way to lose any fear you might have of these predators, and helps to understand how they live and how they adapt to their habitat, observing how they behave through a huge glass case. This activity lasts from 7:30 p.m. until 11:00 a.m. the next day. Don’t miss the once in a lifetime opportunity to spend a night in this unique environment.
Another fantastic activity offer by the aquarium is the Shark Vision Boat, a glass floor boat that allows you to watch the life of the eleven sharks that inhabit the pools, and feel at one with them.
As well as spending the night with these animals, Palma Aquarium also gives you the chance to dive with them in the largest shark tank in Europe, filled with 3,5 million litres of saltwater. This experience, only suitable for the bravest, allows us to watch and learn about how 11 sharks, 6 sand tiger sharks and 4 sandbar sharks live. Discover the species considered the king of the ocean, and learn the fascinating characteristics of these animals.
