Aphrodith's Baths: An adults only pool with relaxing jets and bubble benches.

Apollo's Plunge: An open flumed family slide suitable for all ages. Up to three riders twist and turn on a huge raft with a big splash into the pool below.

Aeolos Whirlpool: A body slide that will propel you along a serpentine slide until you suddenly reach the global flume which will send you spinning round and round until you land in the pool below.

Atlantis Activity Pool: On this attraction one has to battle their way across water pads and rolling logs, without falling down into the swimming pool; separate zones for adults and children.

Having visited here year after year, the fun never seems to stop. Lovely clean and tidy waterpark and the food & ice creams are reasonably priced too. This is a 30 minute walk from Ayia Napa, however you can get a bus from by McDonalds to the park for a euro. The bus journey is around 3 to 4 minutes... More

Pretty amazing place to spend a day, lot of fun and scary moments in a good way. I would suggest to turn some music up, that would make the place more fun then it is already. And to everyone- bring some hats with you if you don t want to burn your face. Happy- enjoyed!

Water park is meant to be one of the best and is recommended as a place to definitely visit however I would not recommend. Personally found that the entry price was very expensive for the amount of attractions inside the water park. Also some rides were closed and some rides required 3 people minimum per ride which isn't ideal if... More
