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.

Minotaur's Labyrinth (The Big Wet Bubble): Consists of a large play splash pool for kids. The children have to climb their way up the wet and slippery bubble but once they reach the top they can slide right back down again.

Waterworld is fantastic!! Nothing cools you down better than a go on the fabulous water slides. We travel to Cyprus every year and always come to waterworld. All the rides do have height restrictions so it's worth checking out the website before going as younger children may not be allowed on most rides. There is a selection of cafes with... More

I visited here a number of years ago but hope to visit this year when back in Cyprus again. From memory the park was very clean and well laid out.

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
