The Mediterranean has been the cradle of civilisations for thousands of years and its marine depths, at once so close and so mysterious, are home to many different types of marine species.
Our 25 aquariums bring you face to face with star fish, wrasses, groupers, elegant rays, peculiar and much-loved sea horses, provocative eels and intelligent octopuses.
These are just some of the species which make up one of the most diverse marine fauna in the world.
In the Mediterranean area you will come across our 'Touch Pool', a tank which allows you to interact with its inhabitants and learn about them first hand.
You will also find a wide variety of Mediterranean corals and anemones living alongside the rest of the inhabitants in what is definitely one of the most fascinating seas in the world.

At Palma Aquarium we honoured to have one of the most spectacular and deepest tanks in Europe: the majestic Big Blue.
At almost 9 metres deep it contains 3.5 million litres of salt water and is home to 11 sharks of two different species; the majestic sand tiger shark and the agile sandbar shark.
Both live peacefully together with other marine species such as the common stingray or the eagle ray, the greater amber jack or the stunning sea bream.
So many of our visitors, on seeing the incredible Big Blue from the outside, are left with an urge to see more. And this is why we have our Shark Vision Boat, a boat designed exclusively for Palma Aquarium, on wich you board and can explore all 33 meters wide of the Big Blue tank from above.

700 million years ago, or in other words, during the dinosaur era, one of the planet's most bizarre creatures was already to be found swimming in the seas: the jellyfish.
At Palma Aquarium we have dedicated a whole area exclusively to these magnificent creatures, so that visitors can admire their light, movement and magic.
There are over 4000 different species of jellyfish, all of which have no brain and are made up of 90% fresh water. Did you know they belong to the same family as corals and anemones?
They also happen to be one of a sea turtle's favourite food to eat. Download Palma Aquarium's map
