Aqualandia, the largest water park in Europe and one of Benidorm’s most popular theme parks (there are 5 in total!), will be opening soon, on Saturday 18th May 2013 at 10am. The first 100 children to go on opening day will have free entrance!!

Slides-AqualandiaIt was the first water park to be opened in Spain, founded in 1985 on the Sierra Helada hill. It counts with different leisure areas surrounded by natural and landscaped areas. Apart from the typical vertiginous-heights-water slides, you will also find a pool area with a children’s playground, a waves pool, jacuzzis, aerobics classes, performances of acrobatic jumps…

It caters for all ages, and it is a fantastic activity for groups of teenagers and families with children.

Rápidos-AqualandiaIt is advisable to go early in the morning with own food and generous amounts of sunscreen. The application of sun block several times a day is essential (seriously!). And if you take picnics or even a container, they will not put any objections. The first thing you will need to do is to find ‘your spot’ on the leisure areas, where you may leave your belongings (non-valuable items only) and start the fun.

Otherwise, Aqualandia has a wide variety of self-service restaurants, snack bars, kiosks, cafeterias, ice-cream shops, and different foods like hamburgers, barbecues, pizzas, kebabs or crêpes.

Moreover, there are also spacious changing rooms, rental of lockers and safety deposit boxes, ATM service, rental of hammocks and floats, and souvenir and photography shops.

How to get there

From Alicante you may get on Tram train number 1 towards Benidorm and get off at the last stop. Then, at the station’s entrance, catch bus number 1 with destination Aqualandia-Mundomar. This bus goes along the Alfonso Puchades, Europa, Mediterráneo and Ametlla Aqualandia-water-parkde Mar avenues, so locals and holidaymakers may use it too.

By car from Alicante you may use the no. 332 National Road or the AP-7 Highway (toll road). The first one, CN-332, goes through the mountains and has quite a few curves, but it takes only 10-15 more than the other one and it is free. Map:
