Crete is the perfect destination for family-friendly fun, and what better way to have fun with the family than a day trip to a water park? This guide will take you through the best water parks that Crete has to offer. The only problem you will have is deciding on your favourite one!
Star Beach – Hersonissos
Star Beach is a place filled with extravagant water-based activities. From water sports to bungee jumping and family-friendly fun, Star Beach is bursting at the seams with things to offer anyone and everyone.
If you’re here for a thrill, you’ll be excited to hear about the rides and bungee jumping that you can get involved in. Alternatively, if you’re part of a group and you prefer a more relaxed swimming experience, then you’ll be able to look forward to calming journeys down the lazy river followed by a cool drink at one of Star Beach’s many on-site bars.
You can even cater for the littlest ones with baby star beach, complete with a water playground and baby pools. There are no less than three restaurants and four bars on the Star Beach grounds, so you, your family or your friends will never need to go without food and hydration.
Acqua Plus Water Park – Hersonissos
Acqua plus is a forward-thinking water park that has paved the way for water parks ever since. It was the first park of its kind to implement the extremely useful cashless system and remains one of the most popular water parks in all of Crete.
This park is perfect for younger kids, teenagers, and adults who still love a thrilling water park ride. Featuring over ten thrilling water rides, relaxing pools, a fish spa and tennis courts, there is something for everyone to enjoy – whatever your pace is.
Acqua Plus is a great place to make those memories last – the Photo Shop is the perfect opportunity for you to keep a record of your happy times and to share them with your family when you get home.
Watercity Waterpark – Annapolis
Perhaps your luxury Cretan villa isn’t in Hersonissos, or maybe you just don’t fancy the travelling. Not to worry, because we have water parks from further afield, too!
The Watercity Waterpark is a full day out. The main attraction for this one is the crazy waterslides, but there are numerous other features for the more laid-back types, including wave pools, jacuzzis, eateries, coffee bars and much more. Watercity is a huge complex so be prepared for some serious walking if you want to try the whole gamut that’s on offer here.
Aqua Creta Limnoupolis – Chania
It’s jam-packed with thrilling rides, pools and slides to accommodate all age groups; although it’s a lot more compact than the Watercity Waterpark, you won’t find yourself wanting for much more at Aqua Creta.
Children under four and adults over sixty even go free, so it’s perfect for a family day out for those who love to swim. They even do birthday packages (and wedding) if you are celebrating a special day, well worth looking in to.
