Palma Aquarium

Palma Aquarium

The main aquarium of Majorca, Palma Aquarium, is a 10 minutes’ drive from Palma’s centre (or even less if you come from the airport). It is an amazing park which perfectly reproduces the different sea beds of our planet. How? With 8000 animals and more than 7000 species hosted in its more than 5 million litres of sea water. A true marvel more than recommendable for the whole family.

A tour around S’Albufera

The main wetland of Majorca is also one of the most special places of the island.

Apart from choosing between visiting the park on foot or by bike, visitors will be able to enjoy one of the most beautiful and authentic autochthonous flora and fauna of the island.
