Waterparks in Crete

There are so many reasons to take a holiday to Crete, and as far as island breaks go, it’s a firm favourite.

Whether you’ve a clan of little ones in tow or are just looking for a wet and wild day out with your nearest and dearest, both kids and big kids at heart will love Crete’s waterparks. We’ve listed the pick of the bunch below to help get you up to speed.

WaterCity

Tucked up in the Anopolis Mountains, you’ll need a coach ride, a cab ride or a transfer from your hotel to make it to Crete’s biggest waterpark.

It’s definitely worth doing, as Watercity blends both thrills and spills with some opportunities for rest and relaxation.

Wide open lawns and lazy river drifting rides mean that more laid-back visitors are able to catch some rays and explore the waterpark at their leisure, while daredevils can make a beeline for the kamikaze slide or the turbo cyclone chute.

Lockers and changing rooms ensure that you can alter outfits as required when making a splash.

StarBeach

To find this waterpark, which is free to enter, look no further than sunny and sensational Hersonissos. What makes this waterpark distinctive from others in Crete is its approach, as well as its amenities.

It’s smaller than most, but popular nonetheless, thanks to its free entry and trio of swimming pools. While there are plenty of slides to enjoy, StarBeach also gets plenty of attention for its themed days, grand clubbing nights and even a spot of go karting.

If you’re looking for a waterpark with a difference, this could well be the one for you.
