Heading to Majorca next year with the kids and looking for something to do that will give a little bit of variety to your Balearic trip? Look no further than the island’s waterparks! While Majorca holidays are all about fun in the sun, on the beach and by the pool, its waterparks are full of splashing good fun that will wear out the little ones (and the adults) for a day.
Whether it’s a waterpark or an aquarium that you’re looking for, the island has something for you. Here are the options to help inspire you. If possible, book tickets in advance, so that you can take advantage of any online offers!
Located in the heart of the popular resort of Alcudia, Hidropark is a big hit with families and groups alike. As the only waterpark in the north of the island, you can imagine how busy it gets during peak times, but that doesn’t detract from the fun that can be had here.
Ideal for families with small children, there’s a range of rip-roaring chutes and slides to choose from, including 2 kamikazes, 4 foam slides, 6 multislides and ‘the Spiral’. You can also choose to clamber inside floating balls as you try to run on water, or enjoy a round of golf if you’d prefer to stay on dry land.
Western Waterpark, Magaluf
If you’re staying on the west coast of Majorca, a visit to the Western Waterpark is a must. With an abundance of thrilling rides for the daredevils, a designated waterpark for the little ones and diving exhibitions running daily, there’s something for everyone here.
Meanwhile, just north of Palma Nova (so accessible from Magaluf), Marineland is a fabulous place if you’re looking for dolphin and sealion shows as well as a handful of other beautiful creatures.
Situated just a short ride from Majorca’s capital, Aqualand is a splashing adventure playground that would make a perfect day out. As well as the chutes, flumes, slides and wave pools, there’s also a mini-zoo, children’s farm and parrot shows to keep you entertained.
A little closer to the capital, you will also find the Palma Aquarium, one of the finest in Europe and home to various underwater creatures including sharks, turtles and jellyfish.
Do any of these take your fancy? Incorporate one or two into your Majorca holiday for a fun-filled change of scenery.
