Water parks in Majorca: find the right one for you

There are two main water parks on Majorca's west coast: The Western Water Park in Magaluf and Aqualand Waterpark at Platja de Palma, S'Arenal - both easily accessible from the capital, Palma - plus a further park on the north coast of the island, Hidropark at the Port d'Alcudia. Here, you'll find the low down on each of the water parks in Majorca, as well as some alternative options for family days out, including a visit to the Palma Aquarium.

The park, which is divided into three western-themed zones - Indian Town, El Paso and Western Land - has some real adrenaline pumping rides from the likes Cola del Diablo to Tornado and the 15 metre high half pipe slide, Boomerang.

Hidropark is right behind the beach and has a good selection of group water slides so you can race your friends and family, and as with the other water parks in Majorca there is a dedicated children's area for smaller kids to splash about in. A number of hotels include free entry to Hidropark when you book your stay, including Club Mac, which is next door to the waterpark.

Ok, so it's not quite a water park - but it is water based. Located in Playa de Palma, this may not be a way of getting into the water for the day but it is one of the highest rated options in the Balearic Islands for learning what lurks beneath it, and combines some watery fun with some real hands-on education about the world under the sea.

Allow a few hours if not a whole day for your visit as there are plenty of different zones within this marine park, and the chance to see and interact with creatures from starfish and jellyfish to sharks and rays, and turtles and octopuses. If you feel like splashing out, quite literally, you can arrange to dive in the deepest shark tank in Europe or even have a sleepover.

Water parks in Majorca: our top tips

Booking tickets to water parks in Majorca can be an expensive business, so it's worth looking out for discount vouchers and online promotions. In many cases you can also buy group tickets, such as family or couple passes, but do look closely at the offers and read the small print. As for avoiding the queues, go early in the day, not to mention at the very start or end of the season.

As the weather in Majorca is consistently hot and sunny, especially during the summer months, always bring sunscreen, and remember that even the most water-resistant brand will require frequent reapplication. Water shoes or jelly shoes are the perfect thing to bring to water parks in Majorca as the scorching heat of the day can make the ground hot, some parks sell them on site too. Water parks will usually allow you to bring your own picnic lunch, and this can be more cost-effective as well as more more varied than the often underwhelming fast food options available at most water parks in Majorca.
