Splash away the day at Aqua Tropic

If you are looking for a unique day out this summer then the spectacular Aqua Tropic water Park is exactly what you need.

Located on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean in the Costa Granadina area of Almuñecar, the 33,610 square metre park boasts unique views over the ocean and is located right in the centre of the bustling tourist resort.

Aqua Tropic has everything a holiday maker could ever need for a day in the water, with a wide range of water slides and attractions as well as restaurants and cafes, however their biggest attraction is something you wouldn’t expect.

Due to it’s vicinity to the Mediterranean the whole park is fed by sea water.

The water is perfectly purified and filtered and used in all the rides and bathing pools, making the park the largest salt water park on the Andalucían coast.

The use of salt water has a huge number of health benefits for the users, everything from respiratory and muscular to dermatological.

Salt water is very rich in mineral and trace elements which is perfect to maintain the condition of your skin. The minerals present in the water actively stimulate the skin and enrich the natural oils of the body, perfect for easing the symptoms of conditions such as psoriasis.

It also has a huge physical benefit. Salt water has much greater buoyancy which makes rehabilitation from injury or other muscular conditions much easier and effective.

Taking a dip in the 20m x 20m wave pool or a spending a relaxing afternoon in the Jacuzzi area will leave you refreshed for the rest of the holiday.

If you are feeling a little more active there are plenty of more high speed attractions for all the family.

With eight slides to choose from every base is covered. For the ultimate thrill seeker the Kaikaze slide is perfect to get the heart racing, whilst the Zig-Zag, water pipe and black hole all provide thrills and spills as they wind their way down into the pools below.

For the more competitive families, the soft roads multi piste lets you race to the bottom on a super soft surface. Last one to the bottom gets the ice cream!

Then for something a little different, the whirlwind adds a bit of suspense to the park, where after travelling through darkness you open up into a large whirl pool where you are then at the mercy of the water as you head for the drop at the bottom.

Once you are spent from a day in the water you can sit back and enjoy one of the many places to eat located in the park. The Pipote restaurant provides a wide range of meals for all appetites and the Havanna beach bar lets you enjoy an expertly made cocktail along with bar snacks and nibbles.
