Aqualandia Benidorm


Benidorm is home to Aqualandia, the largest water park in the province of Alicante. It’s located 50 kilometers from the city, so we recommend that you pick up a hire car to get there with your children. Don’t know where to hire a car? Firefly car hire offers great deals at low prices in Alicante. By the way, it’s better to book a hire car in advance. 

As the first Spanish water park, Aqualandia Benidorm appeared in 1985 in the Sierra Helada Natural Park. Today it covers an area of ​​about 150,000 square meters and has slides and pools for children and adults. 

It’s nice that the smallest visitors will also find something to do there. They can frolic in Adventureland and Laguna – shallow pools with slides, fountains, and water pistols. At the same time, children taller than 1.25 m can swim with their parents among the rocks in the Niagara pool, splash in the Geyser pool or relax under a massage shower in the Grand Jacuzzi relaxation zone. 

Another great way to explore the entire Aqualandia area is to trust the slow flow of the Amazon River. In addition, Aqualandia in Benidorm has 8 water slides. Little daredevils can try Mini-Zig-Zag and Splash. Well, teenagers and adults will enjoy steep and long slides.

If you get hungry, Aqualandia has several cafes, and ice cream stands on the territory. There’s also a picnic area in the park.

Safari Aitana


This is a great place to get in touch with the wild nature and enjoy the mountain scenery. Safari Aitana is a park where animals live in the wild, while people can observe them from a distance of several meters. The park has collected animals from all continents of the globe, so here you can see a lynx, llama, goose, marabou stork, deer, exotic watusi bull, giraffe, and elephant. 

All animals enjoy their native habitat and therefore they feel completely free. On the territory of 1.5 million square meters, there are forests, rocks, areas of the savannah, and water reservoirs. The entire area of ​​the park has 2 separate parts. One of them is only accessible by car. Children will enthusiastically watch the hippopotamus bathing in the lake, the tiger basking in the sun, and the antelopes, zebras, and camels grazing together. 

If you use the guide services, you can attend the animal feeding, and if you’re lucky, treat an elephant with a carrot. Note that especially dangerous animals are still behind the fence.

Another part of the park is suitable for hiking, during which you can meet curious little animals – squirrels, raccoons, chinchillas, and parrots. Also, there are larger but kind animals, including goats, donkeys, and ponies. You can take a photo with them if you want.
