Discover the marine world’s best kept secrets by embarking on a wonderful adventure through our marine park featuring more than 8000 animals of 700 different species and more than 5 million litres of salt water.
This tour starts in front of the Auditorium of Palma de Mallorca and will take us to the Plma Aquarium situated in the resort of Arenal where you will have about 4 hours of free time to enjoy. If you are on a cruise to Mallorca, it's easy to go to the Auditorium on your own. You can walk there (about 3 kilometers) or take public bus nr.1
The Mediterranean area
The Mediterranean has been the cradle of thousand-year-old civilizations which have influenced, and continue to influence, the development of many societies and cultures. We pay tribute to this rich and diverse sea at the Palma Aquarium with 25 aquariums which are home to some of the most representative of its species. From the delicate star fishes, lobsters and slipper lobsters; to wrasses, groupers, prawns and shrimps; and from crabs, weaver fish, eels, and rays, to seahorses and octopuses; as well as many other creatures which all in all make up the largest Mediterranean exhibition in the world.
Have you ever been in a roof garden? Enjoy this new experience by visiting ours, which also happens to be the largest roof garden in Spain. We have used this wonderful area of the park to recreate a tropical rainforest of the Amazon basin. It is the perfect place to cool off on a hot summer’s day thanks to the high level of humidity in the air which can bring your body temperature down by a couple of degrees. You will feel especially refreshed when you reach our amazing waterfall, a spectacular cascade of water measuring 7 metres high, and a very popular spot for having your picture taken.
The tropical sea
Welcome to the greatest collection of live coral in Europe, a world full of colour. The tropical seas are justifiably famous for their diversity of species, bright coloured fish and beautiful coral landscapes. Visit the 24 aquariums which we have dedicated to the flora and fauna of the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific oceans and spot the world renowned clown fish. Be surprised by the uniqueness of the creatures, like the comet tail fish or the surgeon fish; and beware of the black widow tetra; but above all, be prepared to be awed by the coral. Palma Aquarium is a global leader in coral reproduction and not only are all the corals in our tanks real, some of them were born here.
The Big Blue
Spectacular, immense, vibrant, overwhelming; it’s difficult to put into words. Some of our visitors describe it quite simply as marvellous… Indeed all these words will come to mind when you find yourself faced with The Big Blue, the deepest shark tank in Europe, at 8.5 metres deep. Those lucky enough to have entered the tank, say that the dive is absolutely breathtaking. For those who stay on the other side of the glass, it is mesmerising to watch the ebb and flow of the water and the great imposing presence of the sharks as they swim across the tank, obviously much calmer than they are often made out to be.
The Mediterranean gardens
The Mediterranean has a lot more to offer than the sea, and the Palma Aquarium’s gardens, which span approximately 40,000 metres squared, reflect just that. Take some time to relax and have a wander through our gardens where you will be able to get to know some of the most beautiful examples of flora and fauna found on the coasts. Featuring aromatic plants, olive trees, vines, a stingray tank, Koi fish and much, much more!
Put your feet up while the little ones burn off some steam in the playground before continuing with your visit. Remember, Palma Aquarium is one of the largest aquariums in Europe.
