Tips from locals

A great, extensive display of marine life. The sharks are a firm favourite. You can also witness the seals being fed every day at 5pm. Kids love this place, which is a perfect activity for a rainy day!

A nice little aquarium in the heart of Biarritz, have tapas at Bar Jean while you're there :)

Rainy day option, or general plan for kids. Check feeding times for the seals (usually around 4-5pm)

Great place to take the kids or something to do if the rain clouds have rolled in. Its open late into the evening in the summer and the display is fantastic - including a shark tank!
