Discover the wonders of the Mediterranean Sea in the Almuñécar Aquarium. Situated beneath Kuwait Square in the centre of Almuñécar is a 3000 square metre complex that explores the flora and fauna of the Mediterranean.
With up to 3,000 fish and over 200 species, including sharks and stingrays, the aquarium is on two levels. The first floor looks at the evolution of life in the sea, from the simple jellyfish to the exotic seahorse. The second level illustrates the marine eco system, how the flora and fauna work together to create a sustainable environment.
The highlight of the visit, particularly for children, will be the walk through the 17 metre long underwater tunnel with sharks and stingrays swimming overhead.
