Sometimes when you live on a small island, it is easy to feel like there is not much you could do with young children. Yes there are beautiful beaches and the weather is, for the most part, wonderful.
However what if you are not up for the beach, but it is still a beautiful day for the outdoors? What options do you have?
Well, it took us almost three years to finally visit, but the Malta National Aquarium as actually the perfect family outing.
1) There is a wonderful playground right outside the building which means you don’t even have to step inside if you don’t want to.
2) The restaurant is very child friendly, the food is delicious and prices are reasonable too.
3.) The location is picturesque.
4) There is even a fountain outside which comes alive a number of times throughout the day which kids love (change of clothes and a towel are a must in summer).
5) The actual “Aquarium” experience is really a mesmerizing one. There is something to suit everyone – from a little tunnel for the very young ones to informative descriptions for even the most avid ocean lover.
So next time you are wondering what to do with your family on a hot summer day (apart from going to the beach) visit the aquarium. It is so much more than we could have ever imagined.
