‘Mediterraneo’ is Malta’s only Marine Park.
It is one of Malta’s leading family attractions, both for tourists and locals alike. The park is located just off the main coast road which connects to most of the hotels and tourist accommodation in Malta. Public transport service is available and bus stops are situated right outside the park’s entrance.
Situated in a tranquil setting, offset by an authentic background of the beautiful Mediterranean Sea and adjacent to rare historic Roman salt pans, the ‘Mediterraneo’ Marine Park offers a pleasant and safe environment for all its visitors. Facilities include the ‘Mare Nostrum’ restaurant, serving ‘a la carte’ menu meals and light snacks.
The park offers three main programs which are held daily: The Dolphin Presentation; The Sea Lions Presentation; and the Parrot Presentation. But the highlight of all is the interactive programs and in particular the SWIM program with the Dolphins, this is a unique experience which must not be missed.
Besides the bottlenose dolphins , the park presently cares for other different animal species including Sea Lions, Parrots, Green Wing Amazons, snakes, tortoises, turtles, frogs, toads, spiders, scorpions and lizards. The latter are displayed in an appropriate reptilarium and is accessible to all visitors.
In June 2012 the park was acquired by Costa Edutainment of Italy, who also own five Aquariums in Italy, including the largest one in Europe which is located in Genova. It is the aim and objectives of Costa Edutainment to update its ‘Mediterraneo’ marine park and use marine life to educate first.
The Park is open 7 days a week all year round.
The Park is only closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
Reservation for the swimming with the dolphins programme and all interaction programmes is highly recommended.
