What to do in Mallorca: Palma Aquarium as a Family


Are you thinking about travelling to Mallorca with children during the holidays? If that’s the case, or you’re just looking for a plan for the family this weekend, Palma Aquarium is something everyone can enjoy together.

Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and thousands of tourists visit every year in search of its beaches, festivals and other leisure activities to do with friends or as a family. In fact, there are dozens of activities for children in Mallorca, but none like Palma Aquarium, a unique experience in Palma de Mallorca.

A world to discover as a family

If you’re looking for ideas of what to do in Mallorca, you can’t miss out on a visit to our aquarium. Located in Playa de Palma and with more than 55 tanks, at Palma Aquarium you’ll discover a faithful recreation of marine habitats, which will submerge you into an exciting underwater journey through the seas and oceans of the world, where you’ll be able to see more than 8000 sea specimens belonging to 700 different species.

As part of the visit, which lasts approximately 3 hours, you’ll find out about the marine inhabitants in the Petting Zoo or ‘Toca Toca’, where you will be able to pet the starfish, urchins or sea cucumbers, as well as learn a lot of interesting facts about them.

At Palma Aquarium, you’ll find the largest collection of living corals in Europe, with famous fish such as clownfish or surgeonfish that you’ll find swimming amongst the coral in any tropical sea.

The tank which attracts the most attention is our Big Blue. It’s the deepest shark tank in Europe, with more than 3 million litres of water and is almost 9 metres deep. Don’t miss the opportunity to see the sand tiger sharks swimming above your head or next to you from the panoramic viewing tunnel. And, if you’re left wanting more, try a Shark Vision Boat, glass-bottomed boat which runs along the surface of the Big Blue, and from where you’ll be able to see the sharks swimming under your feet. It’s a truly unique experience!


Activities and experiences
for the whole family

At Palma Aquarium, you’ll find many experiences next to these sharks and other activities you cannot miss, such as spending the night sleeping next to the shark tank or diving next to them. It will be an unforgettable experience!

A family day at Palma Aquarium, wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Mediterranean gardens, where you’ll be able to find the installations of sea turtles and the children’s play area with pirate ship, bouncy castles or the water fountain, as well as other outdoor activities. 

The youngest members of the family can also end the day playing in Nautilus Park, Palma Aquarium's kids’ park, where they will find a volcano to climb, slides and ball pool. All next to a cafe area so that the whole family can enjoy an unforgettable day.

To enjoy Mallorca's largest aquarium to the full, we offer you special offers such as those created especially for Balearic residents or family visits, such as the Family Pack, or the family offer with meal included in one of the restaurants at Palma Aquarium.

On our website, you’ll always find exclusive offers and the best price guaranteed, so that your visit to Palma Aquarium is a wonderful experience.
