Costa del Sol waterparks

Make the most of the warm weather and warm seas in Costa del Sol with waterparks for all ages. Our rundown covers where to go for the fastest slides, for family fun or to challenge yourself on water obstacle courses – there are eight to try.

Aqualand Torremolinos, Torremolinos

Starting with the oldest and largest waterpark in the area, Aqualand Torremolinos is the place to go for the highest slides and biggest thrills.

Just five minutes’ drive out of the centre of Torremolinos, set in massive grounds are 19 adult water slides and 15 that kids can have a go on.

Aquamijas Park, Mijas

At the other end of the spectrum, Aquamijas Park is the smallest and least busy in the Costa del Sol so is ideal for smaller kids.

Situated in Mijas, just off the Fuengirola bypass, Lizard Island is the main kid zone, for shallow pools and mini islands with water tippers, plus there are various kids’ slides and a waterfall.

Among the five water slides that grown-ups and older kids will relish are the Kamikaze, Labyrinth Slides and a pair of river rides.

Although small, lots of extra activities are laid-on to keep everyone entertained like shows, dancing and water aerobics, plus the park has mini golf, a rock-climbing wall and hot tubs. A cafe, self-service restaurant and food and drink kiosks are dotted about to keep everyone’s energy up.
