  • Well it's a clean, quiet place to spend an afternoon at. Not a lottttt to see here but all the Marine life here is kept in clean, easy to view setups. It's really a very small collection of Marine life but it's a nice place to visit for sure, if you have half a day to spare on your holiday. It's really just the aquarium, no restaurants or other add on facilities as far as I recall. Best part, they let you carry cameras and shoot your experience. Something that some might enjoy.
  • One of we'll maintained government aquariums I have seen. It's open on all days from 10 am to 7 pm. Entry fee is 30 Rs per person for adults. Although it does not house a vast collection, it still has a decent display of sea animals ranging from jellyfish, crabs, lobsters and other fresh water fishes. Some of the displays have information regarding behaviour, origin etc. Its a nice place to visit with family / kids. One can easily spend 1hr here. The Aquarium is located adjacent to beach
