Places To Visit In The Algarve – Aquashow

"aquashow algarve"The Algarve is all about fun in the sun and a great place to make the most of the fantastic weather while enjoying a family day out is the Aquashow water park near Quarteira.

There are a number of water parks in the Algarve each offering something a little different from their rivals and all really good fun for children and adults of all ages but the Aquashow park is possibly the largest in the region and is known for not only having the water park but for also having a hotel on the site also.

Getting to the Aquashow park in the Algarve is easy if you travel along the EN125 from wither direction heading for Quarteira and Vilamoura you will soon find large signposts leading you to the park.  There is a large car park for the site but in the summer months this can become very full so it can be a good idea to book transport to take you and bring you back for the day.

If you buy your ticket before you go to the park then you will often get a discount whether you buy your ticket online or from a ticket shop located in any of the resort towns in the Algarve or even directly from hotels and resorts.  At this point you can also book transport to and from the park at an additional cost but to be honest it is well worth paying this to save any stress of either finding the park if you are unsure about where it is exactly and not having to worry about parking when you arrive.

When you get to the park it becomes clear very quickly that this is much more than just a simple water park with some slides, it is actually a combination of a water park and a theme park and because of this it is also open out of season for those who want to ride on the attractions without doing the swimming part of the day.

There are several different slides at the park as well as a swimming pool, jacuzzi and what is known as the “lazy river” some of the slides involve inflatables and others don’t but all are great fun!

On the theme park side of the park there is a space centre, museum, mini train, water coaster and also shows involving reptiles, birds of prey and parrots.

In the winter time the park also has an ice rink for entertainment which is quite an attraction with children and adults alike who are not used to doing a spot of skating in the sunny Algarve!

You can even book a session of swimming with sea lions at the park which is similar to the dolphin experience at Zoomarine but costs much less.

For a great family day out throughout the year Aquashow has to be one high on the list for adults and children of all ages!
