Algarve | Water Parks

Algarve is the favourite holiday destination for many tourists who choose this region during the summer. In addition to the beach, are several theme and water parks that can be visited and will certainly provide a spectacular day for children and adults.

This map shows the location of the existing water parks in the Algarve.

Zoomarine

Zoomarine is a water park located near Albufeira. It is an excellent tourist spot to spend a day or several with children. Zoomarine is one of the best water parks in Europe, according to TripAdvisor, and has a variety of attractions.

Zoomarine attractions

The main slogan of Zoomarine is the protection of biodiversity and the awareness of its visitors, the main attraction being the shows with the Dolphins.

The theme park is divided into several themed areas and has several exhibits. There is currently a butterfly garden with a magnificent display of huge butterflies. The Oceanarium is a large aquarium representing various marine environments. There are also two areas with shows of dolphins, sea lions, tropical birds and birds of prey.

In addition to the shows with the animals, there is also a very interesting representation of acrobatics in an environment where pirates live together and a 4D cinema with small films that delight everyone.

There is also an aquatic area and an entertainment area. At Zoomarine Beach we find several pools, slides and literally, a beach with white sand and a wave pool. There are also two attractions with float, the “Rio dos Cocos“, a calmer and more relaxing attraction. There is another one with rapids on a trip to the lost world where we cross paths with the universe of Jurassic Park.

Zoomarine Timetable

Zoomarine opens every year between spring and autumn. The months and days may vary and for this reason, the tip is to check the opening hours and hours on the website itself.

Zoomarine Tickets

Tickets for the park can be purchased on-site, but can also be purchased on the website. In addition, there is a special price for tickets for the second day, which must be purchased within the park itself. Currently, the park already has so many atractions that it will be difficult to watch everything and enjoy all in just one day.

What is the best water park in the Algarve

I think it is necessary to differentiate what you want and with that choose the one that best suits you. If you want a park that allows you to combine fun with contact with animals, without a doubt, Zoomarine is the best.

However, if you just want a park with a wide variety of slides of all types and even some fun, choose Aquashow.

In terms of prices, the park that usually offers the lowest rate is Aqualand, with Zoomarine and Aquashow being the most expensive.
