Blue Reef Aquarium is situated only a few minutes walk from the centre of Newquay and sits directly on Towan Beach.

This is one of those fantastic places to visit in Newquay when it’s raining.

There is lots to do and see here at Blue Reef Newquay and they have around 40 natural habitats to look at whilst here.

You really get the taste of what it would be like under water and they even have an underwater tunnel guiding you past sharks, sea turtles and lots of colourful fish from all over the world.

The biggest fish of them all is of course the black tip reef sharks.

Coral reef is one of the main places this particular shark likes to hunt, hence the name, Reef Shark!

The Blue Reef Aquarium also offers some great advice on how to protect the marine environment including reducing your carbon footprint among other things you can do to help.

You can sometimes see a trained member of staff carrying out tutorials on the beach in front of the aquarium too.

You can arrange a birthday party at the Blue reef aquarium and is a hassle free idea to keep your child and their friends happy for a few hours.

They will each get a party bag and food after your visit in the cafe.

Daily feeds and talks are always being shown including being able to feed Octopus and seeing a one of the trained staff talking about the sharks.

Feed times here.

So, if you are struggling for places to visit in Newquay then why not check out the blue reef aquarium.

Come rain or shine you can be sure to be entertained.

Open for most of the year apart from a few dates, check them out here.
