It's home to more than 70,000 square metres of incredible attractions and rides, as well as beautiful natural gardens. Aqualava Waterpark is also the newest waterpark attraction in Playa Blanca and is fast becoming one of the most popular due to its impressive facilities such as waterslides, chill out zones, lazy rivers and splash zones.

Corsair Bay is home to two main waterslides; the AquaRamp and TimiSlide. It's also the perfect place for little ones to enjoy as the shallow water has been adapted to accommodate younger children.
There's also a giant octopus feature that resides in Corsair Bay so be aware of it dropping huge amounts of water on top of you at the most unexpected moments!

Each of these five slides have a minimum height requirement of 1.20m and all come with their own individual twists and turns. Each slide results in a mighty splash into the collective pool at the bottom, where you can jump straight out and head back up again!
While these areas aren't rides or attractions themselves, they do provide you with the opportunity to relax and unwind in the Spanish sun, all the while keeping an eye on the kids, without having to be in the middle of the slides, rides and attractions yourself!

Like many other waterparks in the Canary Islands, Aqualava Waterpark is mostly in open air with very little shelter and cover. As the summer sun can be incredibly harsh and temperatures soaring into the 30s, it's imperative that you stay safe and protected from the sun when visiting Aqualava Waterpark.
Make sure your kids are well protected with plenty of sun cream, sun hats and even swimming costumes that cover their shoulders, back and chest where possible to avoid them being exposed to direct contact with the sun rays.
Boys and men can opt whether to wear a swim shirt or not, but if you're visiting in the height of summer, it's often recommended that you keep yourself as protected from the sun as possible.
While Aqualava suggests you cover up when possible, you must only wear appropriate swimming materials and not just outside clothing.
It's also advisable to wear flip flops when walking around the Aqualava Waterpark complex as the sun can get unbearably hot on the floor. While you can't wear shoes of any kind on the rides themselves, you can leave them at the bottom of the waterslide for you to collect at the end.
Accessories and miscellaneous items such as sunglasses, hats, watches, bracelets, earrings or necklaces are not permitted to be worn when riding the slides at Aqualava Waterpark. Furthermore, while armbands are required in the swimming pools and lazy river for non-swimmers, floating devices and aids are not to be worn on any rides in Aqualava.
When visiting Aqualava Waterpark, you're not permitted to bring your own food or drink. However, fear not as the waterpark is home to the Timi Kitchen Restaurant where you'll find plenty of live cooking and a varied buffet full of sweet and savoury delicacies.
The type of food you'll find in the Timi Kitchen Restaurant is simple (but still incredibly tasty!) and includes the likes of hot dogs, pizzas, fresh salads and a variety of sandwiches.
The Timi Shop at Aqualava Waterpark is where you can purchase souvenirs of your time at the waterpark so you can remember the trip of a lifetime! The store also sells a vast range of delicious ice creams, ice lollies and fruit juices to keep you refreshed and hydrated throughout the day. Pick up your very own Aqualava Waterpark mascot, TIMI!
When purchasing your tickets to Aqualava Waterpark, you need to decide whether you want a single admission ticket for one day, or for one or two weeks (depending on how long you're staying in Playa Blanca).

The pools are advertised as heated but if the sun isn't shining or it's a cloudy day, you may find the water to feel a little cold. While adults and older kids shouldn't have too much of an issue with this, young children and babies may get colder much quicker if it's an overcast day when visiting Aqualava.
The salt water wave pool and lazy river are the most recommended things to enjoy for the whole family in Aqualava Waterpark as you can spend time together as a whole family enjoying the facilities.
