El Aquarium of Cap Blanc de San Antonio, Ibiza, is within a Natural cave of about 370 m2, with different water inlets so that they are renewed and clean. It is a small aquarium of about 300m2 that is divided into two parts, and also contains six fish tanks distributed throughout the cave in different places. As an aquarium it is therefore quite modest, but with the explanations of the friendly guides, it is a visit that you will surely enjoy!
Besides seeing live animals, turtles and fish, in the aquarium, you can see a collection of samples that includes sea sponges, gastropods, shark eggs and other types of marine invertebrates.
The Cap Blanc aquarium is known among Ibizans as "Sa cova de ses llagostes", Because it used to be a lobster farm that was exported to Barcelona and other cities, it was in 1989 when it became what it is today, an aquarium cave that has been remodeled over the years and where you can see the main species that inhabit the Mediterranean Sea Ibizan.
Nowadays the aquarium is also used by the Center for Marine Species Recovery (CREM), so you may encounter some animal they are recovering, usually sea turtles.
