Crete wouldn’t be such a great cheap and all inclusive holiday destination if it didn’t have its share of water parks. Well that’s definitely the opinion of families with energy-filled kids to entertain. Others may disagree, but you shouldn’t judge until you’ve tried them.

So what’s on offer on the Greek Island of Crete?

Watercity
This water park is huge which means there’s ample room for excitable children and adults. Covering 80,000 square metres, the 36 varying attractions include the Giant Pool, two children’s pools, a Wave Pool, the biggest Jacuzzi Whirlpool we’ve ever seen, and a calm Lazy River winding around the park. Don’t miss the exhilarating Body Slide Cyclone, Sidewinder-Boomerango, Kamikaze and Turbo Guns. Rest and relaxation is available on the clusters of sun loungers, refreshments from the restaurants and souvenirs from the gift shops. Watercity is located in Anopolis near Heraklion.

Aqua Plus
Fifty seven acres of water-inspired fun set amongst beautiful landscaped gardens awaits families at Aqua Plus. Just seven kilometres from Hersonissos, shrieks and splashes fill the hot summer air courtesy of happy kids (and adults). Lounge around and enjoy deep relaxation in the expansive hydromassge main pool or gently bob along the Lazy river. Ramp it up with fast and furious water slide action with the Kamikazi Hydrotube, Aqua Slalom, pokies game Octopus Space bowl Super hydrotube, Black Holes and Space Bowl. If that’s not enough to keep you occupied for a few hours, then hang out in the Pool Restaurant, grab a hot dog and a henna tattoo.

Star Beach Water Park

This water park has a family area suitable for children. However you may be more intrigued by the slightly less child-friendly party area, which throws a lively foam party complete with DJs every day at 4pm. Still if you do find yourself here, the kids will enjoy their own dedicated baby pools with mini slides and water mushrooms (whatever they are). Also there is an adventure playground. Faster rides include the Kamikaze, Black Hole and Multi Tube Slides and there is of course a gentle Lazy River. Star Beach Water Park is located close to the beach in Hersonissos.
