The design of Lanzarote’s Aqualava water park pays tribute to the island’s volcanic landscape with its geothermal-heated pools. The saltwater wave pool (the only on the island) gives the feel of the beach, while the smaller kids' areas are perfectly themed for play. There's a winding lazy river, as well as five waterslides.
Aqualava water park is one of the island’s most popular spots to cool down on those hot island afternoons, especially during the summer. The cost of admission includes access to all the park’s attractions, inner tubes, umbrellas, and sunbeds, as well as facilities for showering and changing. Choose between a basic entrance ticket, or upgrade for convenient round-trip transportation from your Lanzarote hotel.

How to Get There
Aqualava Waterpark is located in Playa Blanca on the south of Lanzarote. The park provides free transfer from Puerto del Carmen and Costa Teguise on select days of the week. You can also catch a public bus from Puerto del Carmen (161 or 61), Arrecife (60), Costa Teguise (01 and 03), or from within Playa Blanca (30).
When to Get There
The water park is open throughout the year, but the cooling water features are perhaps most refreshing during the summer months, when highs reach about 85°F (29°C). Check the weather forecast before your visit, as the park closes during bad weather.
Things to Do in Playa Blanca
