Visit Tenerife Aqua Parks

Tenerife's Aqua Parks make a fabulous day out for families. In the south of Tenerife are two water theme parks with lots of water rides. Siam Park and Aqualand are both close to the popular Playa de las Americas resort.

Siam Park, Tenerife

Siam Park claims to be the best water park in the world and they are probably right. Travelling round the park the buildings and rides as well as the lush tropical planting all have a Siamese theme and the attractions are quite spectacular. Siam Park was opened in 2008 by Her Royal Highness the Princess of Thailand.

There is a pool with waves which are the largest man made waves in the world. The picture above is of the dizzying 'Tower of Power' where you 'drop' 28 meters before plunging into the pool below. For the less adventurous meander slowly around the 'Mai Tai River' in a water tyre. There are lots of attractions so you are certain to find something to suit you. There is also a Sea-Lion island where you can watch sea-lions playing in the water.

Siam Park

Continuing the Thai theme there is a Thai floating market and Thai food as well as the more usual theme park fare available in the restaurants.

There is a free bus service to Siam Park from the large resorts at Playa de las Americas, Los Cristianos and Costa Adeje.

Siam Park Address: Autopista del Sur, 38660 Adeje (Tenerife), Spain

See our Siam Park guide for more information.

Aqualand, Tenerife

Aqualand is older than Siam Park and its water rides are considerably less impressive. However it is cheaper to enter and has an extremely good dolphin show.

Dolphin land at Aqualand has been designed so that you can see the dolphins underwater as well as from the surface and there is a dolphin show every afternoon.

Aqualand

Like Siam Park there are lots of sunbeds, restaurants and cafes and also like Siam Park there is a free bus service from the resorts at Los Cristianos, Playa de las Americas and Costa Adeje.

Aqualand Address: Avenida de Austria, 15 - 38660 Costa Adeje (Tenerife)

More attractions to visit

Siam Park and Aqualand are near to the Playa de las Americas which is the largest resort in Tenerife. The beautiful Park Teide is nearby and is well worth a day trip to explore the rugged beauty and explore Mount Teide up close.

If you wish to find a water park in the north of the island then visit the Parque Maritimo Cesar Manrique which is in the harbour of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the capital of Tenerife. This is not a theme park but is an attractive area of salt water pools and fountains and plenty of sun beds. This was designed by Canaries architect Cesar Manrique.

Also designed by Cesar Manrique is the Costa Martianez water park at Puerto de la Cruz. This too is a landscaped area of salt water pools and fountains as well as sculptures and sea views.

Also in the north is the excellent Loro Park near to La Orotava. Loro Park is a large zoo with dolphins, penquins, tigers and much more.
