Visit a water park
A day out at a water park can be one of the best forms of family entertainment if you like it. There are some to choose from in Algarve.
Aquashow is one of the largest water parks in the area and there is something for everyone. For younger children there are 2 separate play areas with a wide range of slides, shoots, fountains and lots of space to have fun. For adults and older kids who enjoy some adrenaline then the water rollercoaster and the Freefall slide (one of highest in Europe!) should be definitely be on your list! If you prefer things a little more relaxed then you’re sure to love the lazy river, jacuzzi or wave pool.
As well as the large range of slides and shoots there also some ‘dry’ theme park rides and at regular intervals throughout the day there are also some great shows including the always popular birds of prey show.
There are several restaurants and cafes on site, or if you prefer why not pack a picnic and enjoy it on the numerous grassy areas that are spaced throughout the park.
Aquashow water park is based in Quarteira is and within easy reach of Olive Valley.
Slide & Splash is located near Lagoa. Find a spot on the grass to lay your towel and then spend the rest of the day exploring the water park which is home to slides and to a large and entertaining children’s area, suitable for those who are not so confident in the water. Meanwhile, adrenalin fans will love the unknown of the Black Hole inflatable slide, the speed of the Kamikaze and the chance to race friends on the foam slide. Free parking and several food options.
Located in the central Algarve between Albufeira and Lagoa, Aqualand offers a variety of slides and features to keep you busy the entire day. If you are looking for some adrenalin filled fun then take to the speedy slides, while if you would rather relax and bob about then there are more gentle rides designed to appeal to anyone wanting to cool down in the water on a sunny day.
Children who are still not ready for the slides can splash about in the especially dedicated fun zone and when you are ready for a break there are food and drinks available on site.
