A country located on islands needs an aquarium, for sure. If you don’t want to go diving in the sea you can still have a look at the animals living underwater: the Malta National Aquarium is located at San Pawl il-Baħar in the north of the main island. The building looks like a sea star and is home to around 175 distinct species of fish.
When visiting the aquarium, you’re guided on a route through the building including a glass tunnel giving good views on sharks, tuna, and sunfishes. If you get hungry while exploring the site: the restaurant on the ground floor is excellent.
