Located in the North West of Mauritius in a small village, the aquarium houses over 200 species of fish, invertebrates, sponges and coral from the water off the shores of the island. Highlights include the Crown Squirrelfish and the Devil Firefish. Children will enjoy the touchpool where they can have direct contact with some of the marine life.
