We've lived in town for years and finally we visited the Aquarium. I think the price was a little high, but we were really pleasantly surprised at how big it was. You would never guess as you pass by above ground. It really is great for younger kids and there is quite a bit to see.

Visited the Aquarium together with one of our grand sons (3 years old). Both of us left very satisfied and happy. Its is an exciting place with many different species and with good visibility. The 'top catch' is of course when you walk through a tunnel of glass surrounded by fish - including several sharks of considerable size. Ticket price maybe a bit on the high side - but it was well worth it.

The info printed on the walls in Spanish and English was very informative. It seem a bit sparse at first but got better the further on I went.
The real surprise was the bottom level. Wow.

We were quite surprised to find out there is an aquarium in Almuñécar. I visited the aquarium with my two daughters in October 2018. Some positives: no queues, information in both Spanish and English, not expensive. However it is not really well maintained, it’s relatively small and with not many species of sea creatures. Everything seems grayish. Fish seems to be frustrated and move unwillingly. We spent maybe 20 minutes inside as it was rather depressing. Not worth visiting.

Very disappointing at first as tanks are mostly empty and not enough information given. Fossils worth looking at. Keep going you will really enjoy the last section

This is a small aquarium, good for about a 45-minute visit. There was almost no one there on the weekend morning when we went. The exhibits are a little sparse, but what is there is interesting. There is more of a focus on historical development of ocean life than at most aquariums, and It is interesting that the exhibits are focused mainly on local Mediterranean sea life, rather than exotic species that are not found close by. Nonetheless, there are plenty of interesting species like seahorses, rays, sharks and turtles to make the visit interesting.

Now I'm the kind of guy who spends a lot of time the night before going somewhere reading about it on trip adviser.
And our plan to visit Almunecar included a trip to the bird park, getting lunch and finishing off a the aquarium.

I checked the websites and googled the places for opening times and saw very clearly that the bird park has a siesta from 2 - 5 but according to the internet this isn't the case for the aquarium.

However when we arrived there at around 3.30 it turned out the internet was wrong.
How could that be?
How could something written on the internet not be true?

I made my partner and children sit in the cafe outside for around an hour just to make sure that it wasn't some kind of prank.
Turns out they close from 2-6.
If you are planning to go then don't get caught out.

All in all bad planning and misleading information on the internet made for a strange experience.

2 out of 4.

I wasn't expecting much from such a small town but this was really nice. A great activity for a rainy day or to escape the heat.
