Aqua Park Rojales
Aqua Park Rojales lies less than 30 minutes drive inland from Santa Pola. This is a medium size water park with great leisure facilities and rides for all ages. Should you have a golfer in the family, the nearby La Marquesa Golf is home to a challenging 18 hole course. Both the golf course and aqua park are located between the small towns of Rojales and Quesada. Here visitors will find a number of cafes, bars and restaurants, although the park itself boasts several dining options.
Aqua Park Rojales Layout
Aqua Park Rojales opened to the public in 1986 and boasts 21,000m2 of landscaped gardens set in a natural valley. During the park's construction the designers have endeavoured to make the rides and walkways as wheelchair friendly as possible. However, there are steep inclines in some parts of the park, so wheelchair users may want to visit with someone to assist them. Pleasant resting areas are scattered among the grounds and, unusual for a water park, there is a picnic area. This allows you to bring your own food and drink but there's a strict ”No Glass” policy.
