Roquetas de Mar Aquarium

Address: Avenida Reino de España, s/n.

One of the principal tourist attractions of Roquetas de Mar is its Aquarium. There is a very large tank where one can see many different types of fish swimming, together with two large sharks. Apparently the fish in the tank are not to the tastes of the sharks, so they do not eat the fish. There is a large tank of piranha and the story is that they are not voracious killer beasts like in the movies, dreamed up by Hollywood. The hit of the aquarium is the tank where there are many rays, who swim past the spectators and like to be caressed.
