Kids holidays in France: Aquarium, Le Grau-du-Roi

aquariumIf you want to entertain the kids on your holidays in France this summer and you want an alternative to the beach, then the aquarium at Le Grau du Roi, France, is perfect. This small aquarium complete with Shark tunnel, seal and sea-lion observatory and beautiful varietes of jelly fish, focuses very much on educating children of all ages. We especially liked the collection of tropical fish and the sea museum. The children really liked the Garden area with its hands-on pond. It was worth the day out. It wasn't too expensive and afterwards we had a walk around the marina at Port Camargue and then drove to Aigues Mortes for something to eat.
