I've been to a few aquariums ( london, Cape Town, Singapore) and I'm quite pleased with the one in reunion. For such a small country I must admit it is well done. It's an interesting visit to see tropical fish and learn about the oceans in such a warm climate. It's also interesting for kids and adults to learn. And... More

Well worth a visit with young children for an hour or so on a wet day or a very hot day for some welcome cool. Displays a bit limited but gives a good guide of the fish of the region

It's a good possibility to see all different fish if you don't want to go on diving on the sea, you can visit with children

Maybe, Ive seen the really big fancy aquariums everywhere else. So didnt think it was great. But having a toddler with me, was worth a visit. The little one enjoyed. Thou there isnt as much to see here. If you have kids, take them here. If you are just adults. skip it.

Very nice experience! Relaxing music and dimmed lights let you enjoy even more the atmosphere! The kids loved the big aquarium with plenty of fishes! When you are in the area, you should go there for a nice( short) visit and plenty information about marine life!

WE enjoyed the place although we thought it was bigger than what it really was. It is great for children and adults alike. Shame that you can't re-enter the premises when you leave the building (even if it's just to go and eat something and come back). For the price of the ticket, you should have the possibility to re-enter... More

It is a beautiful place, but for the price approximately 10 euros the visit is short lived. But as soon as we push the front door we are delighted. A place that children as well as adults will appreciate without problem. Note that there is a marina where you can go boat or catamaran rides. There is also an artificial... More

We walked to the aquarium from our hotel. The exhibits are well designed, properly lighted and well labelled. The only drawback is that it is in French only.
