The Ocean Aquarium is an exotic destination where adults and children alike can observe a variety of animals in a fascinating natural setting.
Protaras Ocean Aquarium is a research facility caring for over 1000 marine species. There’s a special underwater display themed Atlantis showing the life under the sea in the Mediterranean, but there are also tanks showing the fauna of the world oceans and freshwater habitats, like emperor angelfish native to the Indian and Pacific Oceans or jaguar cichlids from freshwater habitats in Central America.
The Penguin House with South American Humboldt penguins is one of the most fascinating attractions of the aquarium. An outdoor swamp with Nile Crocodiles is another area that will surprise and captivate your attention.
Other animals you can see at the Protaras Ocean Aquarium are North American racoons, Callithrix monkeys, Quarrion cockatoos, Budgerigar parakeets, Blue-and-Yellow Macaws, and laughing doves.
There’s also a wonderfully landscaped tropical garden, which is a favourite venue for weddings in Cyprus. The Ocean Aquarium is available as a party venue for other events, including kids’ birthday parties.
