Menarik: Coral Wonderland

Coral Wonderland is the first coral park in Malaysia. It is located at 4th floor of Dataran Pahlawan Megamall, right in the heart of the historical city of Melaka, UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Malaysia.  A journey into the unseen wonders of the deep will allow visitors to discover many fascinating underwater animals from various depths and ocean regions around the world.

Visitors will be surprised and amazed by the brightly colored live coral garden waving in the ocean current at the Coral Wonderland.

Venture the longest touch pool in Asia where visitors can feel the skin of star fish, sea cucumber, sea urchin and even the bamboo shark, before continuing to the enchantment of the walking frogfish exhibit.
Coral Wonderland Melaka is pleased to present an exhibition of marine life creatures, whose ancestors first appeared on our planet millions of years ago. Their ancestors have defied the ravages of time and the environmental upheavals that drove other species to extinction. They have been aptly called  “Living Fossils”.
Some of these living fossils on display are:

Chambered Nautilus (Nautilus pompilius)

Mangrove Horseshoe Crab (Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda)

Visitors will also have the rare opportunity view on the breeding ground of sea horse and everyone’s favourite marine movie star, the clown fish or ‘Nemo’.


Sea Urchin

Bamboo Shark

Blacktip Reef Shark



Common Octopus



Coral Wonderland experienced guides will share with visitors about how the marine animals interact with their habitats.

As Melaka’s premier visitor destination and a major entertainment attraction, Coral Wonderland is undoubtedly the one not-to-be-missed spot on your itinerary. A few hours spent at the Coral Wonderland will be as educational as it is fun and memorable.
