On a summer holiday to Portugal's southern coast a trip to a waterpark is a must. Whether you’re going away as a big group or you’ll have little ones along for the trip, it’s the perfect way to spend a day in the sun.
The whole family can get in on the fun with an abundance of slides and rides suitable for all ages. If you prefer to watch from the comfort of your lounger, there’s always plenty of pools and gardens where you can relax and soak up the sunshine.
Alongside the excitement, you’ll find a great choice of cafés, bars and restaurants. Some of the parks even have a zoo on site where you can watch live animal demonstrations and get up close to tropical species!
- Aquashow Park
- Slide & Splash
- Krazy World
Located in Guia, approximately a 20-minute drive from the popular resort of Albufeira, this giant amusement park will be a hit with all the family. Known for its fascinating dolphin displays, Zoomarine is much more than just a water park.
Take on thrilling water slides, before marvelling at the animal shows and enjoying the graceful flight of birds of prey. Then, there’s everything from sea lions and tropical fish to crocodiles and manta rays to see!
2. Aquashow Park
With thrilling water slides, outdoor attractions and live animal shows, Aquashow Park is packed full of things to see and do. Found on the south coast near Faro, this colourful park has entertainment to suit all ages and interests.
Thrill seekers should head straight to Free Fall. This adrenaline-pumping ride towers 32m above the park and is the tallest free-falling water slide in Europe!
3. Slide & Splash
Close to Lagoa in the Algarve, Slide & Splash is seven hectares of pure fun! Face the unknown on the Black Hole, race your opponent on the Kamikaze and experience a real sliding nightclub on the park’s newest attraction, Disco River, with bright lights and music. Away from the water slides, there are animal shows featuring birds of prey, parrots, macaws and reptiles.
In the heart of the Algarve, Aqualand is a great option for all ages. Experience the Flying Carpets slide or simply kick back and enjoy the waves at Surf Beach. For the ultimate relaxation, jump in your rubber ring and let the 270m Congo River take you around the park. Little ones are catered for too with two separate splash parks and a whole host of slides, water cannons, shallow pools and fountains.
5. Krazy World
Much more than just a water park, Krazy World offers fun activities to keep you occupied all day long. There’s go karting, mini-golf, bouncy castles, zip-lines and much more. If you’ve got animal lovers in your group, they’ll be entertained with pony rides, reptile displays and a petting zoo!
