It’s good to have visitors on the island because that’s how I get to see also”touristy” places. A few days ago, I entered the Protaras Aquarium for the first time.
I paid 15 euros for the visitation fee and entered with high expectations. I found a clean space, several aquariums with larger and smaller fish, many moray eels (of which I also saw in the water at the shore in Ayia Napa) a small crocodile, and a turtle that I understood had been rescued, that doesn’t see and would not have managed in the natural environment.
We also came across two larger crocodiles, three monkeys, peacocks and parrots and, 2 penguins.
There is plastic lawn, big shade trees, and a place to eat if you’re hungry. There is also a children’s playground.
I won’t tell you to go, and I won’t tell you not to go either, but I leave some photos below, and you decide for yourself.
