The Aquarium in Almuñecar
The Almuñécar Aquarium is a 3000 square meter underground complex that exhibits Mediterranean Sea fauna on two levels. It is located below the Kuwait Square behind the central municipal market and near the Ayuntamiento
The Almuñécar Aquarium normally has up to 3000 fish, across more than 200 different species. The first floor shows the evolution of marine life, from the simple jellyfish to the more sophisticated seahorse. The second level shows the function of flora and fauna in the marine ecosystem. The highlight of a visit is a walk through the 17 meter long tunnel, allowing one to see sharks and stingrays swimming overhead. If you arrive around 2:00 pm, you might even get the chance to see them feeding and swimming with the giant fish dressed in full scuba gear.
This is a place the children will love!
