|About these ratings|
Located approximately nine miles east of Heraklion, the Cretaquarium is the largest of its kind in the Eastern Mediterranean. If you're traveling with kids, the Cretaquarium should be on your list; thousands of species are on display, plus there's an on-site café and a gift shop for those in need of munchies or souvenirs. Still, some aren't impressed with the aquarium and say you should be able to breeze through it in less than two hours.
Getting to the Cretaquarium is easy enough, with frequent buses connecting from Heraklion. The bus ride takes about 30 minutes. For more information, click here. The aquarium is open every day but has seasonal hours. Admission varies by age, somewhere between $8 and $10 USD.
