Malta National Aquarium

The Malta National Aquarium in Qawra, which has been in the offing for years, is now a must visit attraction for locals and visitors.
Malta National Aquarium

The project is spread over approximately 20,000 square meters and comprises a public aquarium, a public landscaped belvedere at promenade level, a multi storey car park, facilities for local dive schools, catering facilities including a popular beach club (Café del Mare), a merchandise outlet and a tourist information kiosk.

The public aquarium includes 26 display tanks with, amongst others, Mediterranean fish, including fish commonly found in Maltese waters together with replicas of historical artefacts that one can find  in the seas around the Maltese islands. The main tank of the aquarium houses species from the Indian Ocean, including eight black tip sharks, horn sharks, rays, eels and other exotic species.
The main tank is approximately 12 meters in diameter and has a walk-through tunnel that allows visitors to experience the fish at a much closer range. All tanks are expertly themed to replicate the underwater environment.

The National Aquarium is in an iconic curved shell structure in the form of a starfish. The adjacent promenade provides additional recreation facilities including a children’s play area.The Aquarium is situated in the northeast of the island, in Qawra, which forms part of St. Pauls Bay.
