Visit the large Aquarium of Saint Malo during your camping holiday

The Grand Aquarium de Saint Malo is one of the main aquariums in France. It offers nine thematic areas based on the cold and warm seas of the world. Jellyfish and giant Japanese crabs colour the cold and temperate seas aquarium in purple and orange. Rays, seahorses and Atlantic piranhas can be seen. The tropical room is also colourful, with clownfish, scorpionfish, anemones and surgeonfish. Each aquarium provides information about the species and their way of life. Among the attractions not to be missed is the aquarium with sharks - black tips, white tips, lemon sharks - moving gracefully alongside turtles and giant groupers. The circular shape of the aquarium sometimes makes visitors think they are surrounded by sharks... Shivers guaranteed! For total immersion, come aboard one of the eleven "Nautibus" mini submarines. A unique concept in France.
