Here comes the summer and with it the soaring temperatures! If you are looking for somewhere to combat the heat with the family, how about one of the water parks in Benidorm.
Aqua Natura is one of two water parks in Benidorm and is ideal for all the family with fresh water, great views and shallow areas for the children to play freely under the watchful eye of Mum and Dad.
Children will be kept occupied in the Children’s play area and with the water slides, water chutes, puppet shows, Aqua Gym and Sea Lion show, the rest of the family can relax and enjoy a Mojito or an iced Coffee.
Aqua Natura is the sister park to Terra Natura, the wild life park and is set in 40,000 square meters which have been designed to provide a good visual field so that parents can keep an eye on the kids while relaxing.
There are five areas, the wave pool, water chutes, children’s pool and the Lighthouse area with spa and sun terrace.
Aqua Natura opens daily from the end of May to middle of September with reasonable prices.
Tickets are sold individually or combined. The combined ticket allows entrance to both parks on separate days. Get up close and personal with the animals in Terra Natura one day then chill out at Aqua Natura another day.
Tickets are on sale from April from this web site with a discount.

Benidorm as a resort is not new, people have been visiting Benidorm since the 1800s when it was a spa & health resort. The very first hotel, the Hotel Bilbaino was built in 1929 on the Levante Beach and full board at that time cost just 8 pesetas. The first Tour Operators arrived in the 1950's and brought passengers from Valencia airport to Benidorm as Alicante airport did not open until 1967.
The Hotel Colon first opened its doors in the 1961 and has now celebrated 52 years is testiment to how tourism then was vastly different to today. At that time there was approximately 15 hotels in Benidorm, kitchen staff used coal or firewood to cook meals and all linen was hand washed!
Today the resort has approximately 40,000 hotel rooms, 20,000 apartment beds and 11 camp sites throughout the city. There are three 5 star hotels, thirty two 4 star hotels, seventy four 3 star hotels, fifty three 2 star hotels and twelve 1 star hotels. The last hotel to be built was the 5 star Barcelo Asia Gardens with a Thai spa and beautiful Asian pools and tropical gardens.
