Mijas Theme Parks, Andalucia, Spain

Here we´re going to kick-off with one of the big favourites, Mijas Water Theme Park… the family-friendly theme park in the heart of the Costa del Sol. Open May to September.

This is a great day out in Mijas with lots of water experiences … rafting, shallow water activity pools for the tots … the twists and turns of the Labyrinth Slides and Adventure River for the wildest ride … plus the near vertical Kamikaze Slide … which you and I wouldn’t go anywhere near but that the kids think is cool, wicked, awesome, etc. etc.

Apart from ´fun in the sun` on the water attractions there is mini-golf, a rock-climbing area and daily musical shows … enough to keep the most hyper happy all day long … for some it can prove all too energetic !

For those in search of a slower pace there are plenty of deck chairs provided and two shady, green, picnic areas … even massage by the pool … so no excuses, mum !

Mijas Water Park is really very good value at 38.50€ for a family of four or a ¨special¨ of 44€ for two days. One tip – leave this particular day out for the end of the holiday or you’ll find the kids will want to do nothing else !!

Just off the N340 behind Fuengirola, Torremolinos has an Water Theme Park too – take the N340 exit Palacio de Congresos.
