Baku Water Park is one of the best-known family tourist attractions in Corralejo on the island ofFuertaventura and is often referred to as 'Fuerteventura Water Park' as it's a key tourist attraction and only water park on the island. It is the perfect destination for all the family to have some safe, watery fun against the backdrop of brightly-coloured plastic slides, sunshine, blue skies and tropical gardens. The water park guarantees endless hours of amusement and entertainment, both in and out of the water.
Key attractions at Baku Water Park are the six main slides including the 'kamikaze', 'rio rapido', 'splash race' and 'black hole' for those seeking plenty of speed and even more splash! Most of the slides are multi-lane so that queuing is kept to a minimum. They've obviously got it right as you rarely hear reports of queuing or overcrowding - in fact quite the opposite. There are also numerous gentle options and mini versions of the main slides for younger family members, such as 'mini splash race' and 'mini kamikaze'. A massive Jacuzzi, lazy river, wave pool, waterfalls, rope crossings and dedicated kids area in 'The Castle' ensure that all the family are catered for - both weak and strong swimmers - and with sun loungers in the sunbathing area of the park you can watch the world go by or top up you tan in relative peace and quiet.
Baku Water Park
This Fuerteventura water park is substantial and won't disappoint - it has more than 20 activities on-site as well as a self-service food area, food kiosks and medical services and lifeguards for peace of mind. Whilst there's enough entertainment here to easily fill a day, the park offers reduced entry rates for afternoon-only visitors, worth knowing about if you've only got a few hours to spend here. It's also worth highlighting that children under three currently go free. Check out the Baku Water Park Fuerteventura website for all the latest information on prices and entry at bakufuerteventura.
There's also a full 18-hole, par-67 mini golf course at Baku Water Park called Minigolf Fantasy for all those budding golfers, who'd rather pitch and put than splash and swim. In addition to all theFuerteventura water park fun, you'll also find Baku Mercadillo, an arts and crafts street market open from 9am to 2pm on Mondays and Fridays throughout the summer season - a great place to stock up on treats and presents including souvenirs and t-shirts before flying home. Other themed areas within the Fuerteventura water park include Parque Europa - an area of restaurants, bars, bowling and golf - as well as the 'Animal Experience' with its life-sized pirate galleon, underwater viewing galleries and 'swimming with sea lions' attraction.
Over the peak summer months the Fuerteventura water park is open daily from 10am to 6pm. From mid-late September the park closes for a couple of days mid week but remains open on all other weekdays until the end of October making it a great addition to any holiday to Fuerteventura.
Family-friendly Baku Water Park is well located at the top of the main street in Corralejo town, on the north of the island. It's well serviced by a Baku water park bus and also offers free parking if you've hired a car for your Canary Islands holiday. Costa Caleta is around 40 minutes from the water park in Fuerteventura and El Cotillo is about 20 minutes - both an easy drive on good roads.
The Oasis Park Zoo in Fuerteventura is another great day out for the whole family, they have one of the largest collection of camels in europe. We thoroughly recommend a day trip to Oasis Park.
