Why you should visit the Cap Blanc aquarium in Ibiza

Located in a natural cave, Cap Blanc offers a unique exhibition showcasing an interesting selection of the Ibizan and Mediterranean marine life.

The aquarium, also known as “Sa Cova De Ses Llagostes” since it was formerly used as a nursery of lobsters, is a natural cave of about 370 m2, with five water inlets distributed in different points, allowing a constant circulation of the oxygen and water renewal.

The surface of the lake is about 300 m2 divided into two parts. In them, you can find most of the animals that inhabit the centre, split according to their compatibility. Besides, there are six large fish tanks of between 150 and 5000 litres distributed by the cave, where other minor species live.

There is also a collection of samples, in which you will find specimens of shark eggs, sea sponges, gastropods, bivalves, and other marine invertebrates.

Thanks to the excellent conditions and quality of the water and its natural characteristics, the aquarium facilities are currently used by the Marine Species Recovery Centre (CREM), so it is possible to meet animals in recovery (mainly sea turtles), which are treated and once they’ve healed, they are returned to their natural habitat.

Throughout the year, the CREM offers a program of educational activities regarding the situations that are affecting marine species and their environment. They offer different workshops tailored to each group and age range, completely free of charge (with prior reservation).

The entrance fee is 5 € for adults, 3 € for kids, and they have a special discount for residents (remember to bring the ID card). After the visit, we recommend you to enjoy a cup of coffee or drink at the bar, which has beautiful sea views.

Let’s keep our culture alive!
