A great alternative to the beach, Palma Aquarium is a truly astonishing affair. With more than 8,000 animals; five million litres of salt water and the deepest shark tank in Europe, it’s sure to keep kids entranced. Summer months see an extensive activities range, including the chance to dive with rays (eight years and up) or cool off with a water fight on the pirate’s ship (pack their bathers). There’s decent food on site, beautiful gardens and a kids’ play area, too.
Cost: Adults, €23.50; 4-12 years, €16.50; 0-3 years, free.
