Tips from locals
If you are into a day trip to Valencia, this will be definitely a good option. The high speed train will bring you from Alicante to Valencia in about one and a half hour.
One of the great places that animal lovers should visit when in Valencia is the L'Oceanogràfic aquarium. Called El Oceanográfico in Spanish, this is actually an oceanarium located in the city’s eastern fringes. Designed by ace architect Félix Candela, it is located within the famous cultural complex…
They do a dolphin display and it has the largest glass water tunnel in Europe to walk through, directly underneath the massive fish tank, with sharks swimming a few metres from your face!

“Very easy to find and to access. If you are driving there is a large underground car park on site with lifts direct to the entry level. The zoo is fairly compact and very well laid out and maintained. The onsite restaurant is ok although prices could be a little better - our advice is to eat at around 1330 as by 1400 there is always a queue.”
