Slide and Splash Water Park
A mere 10 minutes from the Rocha Brava Village Resort lies Slide and Splash, providing visitors and residents of the Algarve with watery fun for over 35 years. Home to Portugal’s only aquatic night club ride, complete with bright lights and loud music, “Disco River” is a one-of-a-kind ride, as is Big Wave, its zero-gravity effect perfect for enjoying with 3 other people. From water activities to rides of all kinds, not to mention the Wild Splash Show, exhibitions, and birds of prey, reptile, parrot, and macaw displays, this is certainly one of the best water parks in the Algarve.
Whether you’re hopping in the car or arranging a transfer, Aqualand is only 15 minutes away from the Rocha Brava Village Resort and promises a day out to remember. If you want to get your adrenaline pumping, check out the all-new attraction for 2023: King Cobra, a 5-story-high slide that will send you spinning into the mouth of a giant snake. But if that’s not your cup of tea, worry not, as Aqualand provides options for all tastes, including a surf beach and wave pool for more relaxed family fun and Rainbow Park for the little ones to get their fix of slides.
Zoomarine Water park, Algarve
Possibly the Algarve’s most famous water park, Zoomarine is only a half-hour drive from the resort and a must for lovers of sea life, water parks, and everything in between. Hundreds of attractions are sure to keep kids and grownups busy all day, from dolphin, sea lion, seal, and bird of prey shows to looking at tropical fish and reptile aquariums, a 4D cinema, and, of course, an entire range of pools and slides. The question here will be: is one day enough?
Krazy World, Algoz
Speaking of animals, Krazy World in Lagoa is a zoo that doubles as a water park, though meeting lemurs is only one of the many activities available here. Sure, you can cool off from the hot Algarve sun in a large swimming pool with slides, but you can also go paintballing, go for a pony ride, go-karting, tree climbing, or even sign yourselves up for a round of mini golf. Only half an hour away from the resort, Krazy World is an experience you won’t want to miss.
Aquashow, Quarteira, Algarve
Last but certainly not least – in fact, Aquashow has been dubbed the most comprehensive water park in Portugal – is Aquashow, a fun-filled day out for the whole family only 40 mins from the Rocha Brava Village Resort. Boasting both an outdoor and indoor park (for those few days a year the weather’s not water park worthy), visitors will find slides for all ages, a full list of spa experiences, and even a high rope course over all the attractions, giving you a bird’s eye view of all the fun. Heading to Aquashow? Then make sure you plan your day carefully to make the most of everything the water park has to offer!
