With springtime fast approaching and temperatures set to increase in the next few weeks, the Costa del Sol water parks will once again be opening their doors.
Popular with small kids, teenagers and big kids, Aqua Mijas and Aqua Land, Torremolinos welcome thousands of visitors every summer, and regularly add new rides and attractions to keep everyone entertained.
The Mijas-Costa Park, from direction Marbella, is situated just off the N-340, near Fuengirola. Exit the road where you see the big Mcdonalds sign and turn immediately right at the roundabout. The Torremolinos Water Park is also easy to get to. From the N-340, direction Marbella to Malaga, pass all signs for Benalmadena. Exit the motorway at the first sign for Torremolinos, and follow the road down to the right. At the first main junction turn right and you will come to the Park.
Look out for early bird tickets, deals and family discounts at both parks.
Attractions and rides at Mijas include: Rio Bravo, Labyrinth Slides, Body Ski, Wild River, Kamikaze, Wave Pool, Kiddie Slides, Lizard Island, Blue Lake and Jacuzzi.
Holiday homes and properties for sale in Mijas, La Cala de Mijas, Marbella, Mijas-Costa and El Higueron are all within easy reach of both water parks.
There is also mini-golf, a climbing wall and a recreation area within the park, plus a self-service bar and restaurant and a picnic area. The park also boasts a gift and photo shop where you can buy souvenirs and a security and lifesaving service. The first aid centre is permanently manned. Sun loungers can be hired, and there are plenty of shaded areas to relax away from the busier attractions. Disabled parking is also available right outside the gates.
In 2018 Aqua Mijas opens on 23 April until late September (close dates to be confirmed).
