Aquarium Cap Blanc

The aquarium Cap Blanc was founded in 1989, and is located in Sant Antoni. It is also known as Sa Cova des Peix, Sa Cova de Vell Marí or Sa Cova de Ses Llagostes. Years ago, the fishermen used this cave as a fish and lobster hatchery. Later, they export fish to other cities, inside or outside the island.

It is a natural marine cave that can be crossed by a walkway. From it you can see lots of different species like lobsters, stripes, groupers, so on. There are also fish tanks where you can find the smallest species.
