Mediterraneo Marine Park promotes marine life conservation against the stunning backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea. Offering entertainment alongside a learning experience unique in its kind. As Malta's only marine park, The ‘Mediterraneo’ is a leading island attraction with tourists and locals alike. Boasting an enviable coastal location, the park promotes interactive participation with a varied selection of marine mammals including dolphins and sea lions; parrots and reptiles.


Enjoying Malta's sunny climate, The Mediterraneo Marine Park remains open all year round. The park is conveniently located just off the main coast road, enabling good transport links from most hotels and tourist accommodation. Part of the Costa Edutainment group (since July 2012), The Mediterraneo Marine Park advocates animal welfare through an interactive learning environment inspired by their motto "Education, Emotion and FUN". Visitors may participate in various animal interaction programmes which provide superb entertainment whilst increasing awareness and conservation responsibilities.

The park has three main programmes which are held daily: The Dolphin Presentation, The Sea Lion Presentation and the Parrot Presentation. All of these presentations offer an amazing experience to aid a better understanding of the animals and an appreciation of their individual characteristics. The highlight of any visit to The Mediterraneo Marine Park has to be the Dolphin SWIM programme – a truly unique and once in a lifetime experience that is not to be missed!

Some of the other species that visitors can also expect to see include: a Coati, Green wing Macaw, Amazons, Snakes, Tortoises, Iguanas, Turtles, Frogs, Toads, Spiders, Scorpions and Lizards.
