While on holiday in Fuerteventura last month we visited Acua Water Park. We had such a great time there that I thought I would share our experience with you all in this post.
Acua is located in Corralejo in the north of the island. It’s actually the only water park in Fuerteventura so understandably it is very popular. Our hotel was in Corralejo so it was very convenient for us to get to. But, if you are staying elsewhere on the island there is a bus service for those who have booked their tickets in advance from Jandia (south) or Caleta de Fuste (centre).
The park is great for children of all ages, as well as adults. Water parks really aren’t my thing but even I enjoyed it there! We started off in the children’s area which is suitable for toddlers and younger children. My kids are five and seven and both enjoyed playing in there before heading on to the bigger attractions.
My daughter was a little weary of some of the bigger slides so we spent some time on the sun loungers, which are dotted around the park and are free to use. While my son and husband went and had some fun on the big slides.
There’s over 14 attractions at Acua, so plenty to do and you can easily spend a whole day there. My sons favourite was The Rapids, which is the tallest slide at the park and over 100m long. He also really enjoyed the curved slides.
The family slides were my favourite as it was something that we could all get involved in and enjoy together. There’s six slides side by side so you can race against each other and see who gets to the bottom first.
Other attractions include the jacuzzi, mini slides, wave pool, slow river, castle jump, splash lagoon and the dark cave.
As well as the main attractions you’ll find a shop (this is where you can hire inflatable rings), children’s club and pool bar at the 25,000 m2 water park. You’ll also find lockers and changing facilities close to the park entrance.
A standard one day ticket is priced at €25.00 for adults, €19.00 for children and €19.00 for seniors. Acua Water Park is open 10am – 6pm in peak season, but opening times do vary out of season so do check the website for details.
In summary, we had a fantastic day at Acua Water Park and would highly recommend visiting if you are on holiday in Fuerteventura. Whatever age your children are there are lots of suitable attractions for them and for the whole family to enjoy together. A fantastic family day out.
