Aqualava Splash Park
Based in the South of the Island in Playa Blanca, this water park may be on the small side but it offers a large amount of fun for the whole family.
The water park is relatively new and was created with respect towards the local, volcanic environment. They even use the volcanic, geothermal energy to heat the pools all year round!
The park is perfect for families who don’t like your normal busy, crowded water parks. This park is smaller and therefore ideal for people with small children that aren’t fond of busy and overcrowded environments.
There are areas within the splash park to suit all ages and desires.
There is a nice beach area with the island’s one and only wave machine. The waves break out every hour!
This area is perfect for small children with a large splash zone, fun slides, games and a giant Octopus splash bucket. There are sun loungers close by so you can keep a close eye on the little ones as they splash and play.
The height restrictions in this area are 120cm and above. This is quite low compared to a lot of water parks in the world which means that a lot of small kids can enjoy the bigger slides. There are 5 main slides in this area offering different thrills and experiences. You can ride in either double or single tubes. There’s the Aqua Slide, Aqua Hole, Aqua Tube, Aqua Bowl and Aqua River. Which will you dare to try first?
Aqualava Magma River
The lazy river can be enjoyed by the whole family. You can cruise around at a leisurely pace in either a single or double tube.
Sun loungers and parasols are included in the price at Aqualava. There is also free WIFI. Lockers can be hired for 4 euros a day with a 2 euro deposit. There are changing rooms, toilets and baby changing facilities inside. There is a restaurant onsite offering snacks, drinks, ice creams and small meals. (Vegetarian meals are also served). You cannot bring your own food into the park but it is reasonably priced inside, or, as the park is small, you could just spend half a day there.
Travel 4 Baby’s Top Tips:
- Heating the pools using geothermal energy does not mean that the pools will be very hot. The pools are not freezing but on colder days, they may not feel the warmest. We would recommend that you take thick towels and warm clothes for small children to change into after swimming especially on colder days.
- Children over 120cm can go on the bigger slides. It is worth noting that the water at the bottom of the slides is at a depth of 110cm so even if they are 120cm, make sure they won’t be out of there depth at the bottom.
- You can get free transport to the park every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca and Puerto Del Carmen. (This must be booked directly with the park)
- There is free parking at Aqualava and local busses stop nearby.
- TOP TIP- it will be quieter on days when the free bus doesn’t operate!
