Whether you’re looking for adventure, relaxation or to soak up the sun, visiting waterparks in Tenerife should be top of your bucket list this year. To get you started on your aqua adventure in paradise, we’ve come up with a few of our favourites.
Costa Martiánez – El Lago Martiánez
Enjoy outdoor seawater pools amid an open-air museum and beautiful sculptures. Close your eyes and unwind to the soothing sounds of the nearby sea. You’ll find no slides here, just complete peace and tranquility. Everywhere you look you’re met with stunning surrounding views at this waterpark, and there’s always lots of space to relax in and plenty of pools to choose from.
Parque Marítimo César Manrique
Of all the waterparks in Tenerife, you’ll find the Parque Marítimo César Manrique, in the capital of Santa Cruz, is one of the more laid back. Swim in outdoor saltwater pools, lounge in Jacuzzis or relax in a hammock with your favourite book before visiting the restaurant for a tasty bite or having a drink at one of the bars. For a bit of variety, escape to the gym or games room. If you’re bringing the whole family, take a dip with the kids in the dedicated children’s pool and play in the family-friendly children’s areas.
Out of all of Tenerife’s waterparks, you may be most impressed with Aqualand. Cool off while slipping down waterslides of all sizes and marvel at the beauty of magnificent waterfalls. Take the kids to swim in the wave pools and enjoy the dragon slides.
Siam Park Tenerife
If it’s adventure you’re after, Siam Park blows the other Tenerife waterparks out of the water. You’ll have 46 acres of the massive Thai-themed waterpark to choose from. Swim in the “largest man-made wave in the world” at about 3.3 metres high and ride the Mekong Rapids. After the adrenalin rush, you can catch your breath floating down Lazy River or lying in the sand on Siam Beach. The park even promises to accommodate non-swimmers, and lifeguards are always on duty.
