Aquarium La Rochelle

Located at Quai Louis Prunier in the marina of La Rochelle, the aquarium is 5 km barely from Campsite de Beaulieu. It only takes about ten minutes to reach it by car, and about twenty minutes by bike.

Discover the Aquarium

With more than 600 species and 10 distinct universes, the La Rochelle aquarium is one of the largest private aquariums in Europe. Ideally located on the city’s marina, it deserves a visit even on a sunny day! The aquarium route begins with species specific to the temperate waters of the Atlantic, and continues with the more colourful species of the Mediterranean Sea. This is followed by a space dedicated to jellyfish and their elegant diaphanous ballet, a dive into the Caribbean seas, then an immersion in the heart of the corals of the Indian and Western Pacific oceans. The encounter with sharks is a highlight of the course, as is that of sea turtles.
