Water Parks / Aqua Parks
Nerja is fortunate enough to have not one but two water parks within approximately a 15 minute drive, one in the coastal town of Almuñecar to the east and the other in Torre del Mar to the west. Both open during June to September from 11am until 6/7pm depending on the month.
Aquavelis in Torre del Mar is located across the road from the large shopping centre El Ingenio and visible from the motorway as you head towards Nerja. Of the two nearby parks this is the smaller and slightly more expensive. Its attractions include an 80m kamikaze slide, multiple foam water slides, a water toboggan hill, rapid river shoot, two large ‘lake’ pools, a wave pool and a mini zone for children under 8 years of age. On site you’ll find a hamburger kiosk, pic-nic area, snack bar, changing rooms and sunbeds available (although they cost extra). The park is open from 11am until 6pm during June and September but stays open for an extra hour during July and August until 7pm. An adult ticket will cost just over €20 whilst a child’s (4-12) will cost approximately €16.
If you’d like to make a visit to the park by car take the motorway towards Malaga and come off at exit 272. Go left on the roundabout and follow the signs for the Mercadona supermarket which is next door. You can also go by bus, getting off at Torre del Mar bus station and walking to the park which will take 10-15 minutes.

The Aquatropic water park opened some 20 years ago and covers an area of 35,000m². It’s surrounded by pretty, shady gardens perfect for pic-nics and continues to add new attractions year on year. Aquatropic is currently the only salt water park in Spain and offers a great day out for the whole family. Its attractions include tropical trails, a lake with waterfall, a wave pool, a zig-zag, kamikaze slides, a hydrotube, a black hole slide and an infant’s pool. As well as the aquatic facilities and rides for children you’ll also find a playground with trampolines, table football, pool, a bouncy castle as well as various games to keep them entertained. There are also numerous services for visitors including a self-service bar and grill, kiosks, lockers for rent, sunbeds, massages and safes for you to store your valuables. The park also has a fully trained first aid team.
There are various deals available and discounts if you book online. An adults day pass will cost approximately €20 whilst a child’s roughly €15.
