Water Parks

Aquashow is near Quarteira (15 – 20 minutes drive from Albuferia. Aquashow has the biggest wave pool in Europe . It also has a water roller coaster and lost of excellent rides you would expect in a water park. However, it is a very plush up-market water park. If you have hired a car – I would much prefer this water park to slide & splash

This picture is from the water coaster. It's an excellent ride. 

The wave pool is great fun and you can spend a long time here before moving on. In this area it's often possible to get a back or neck message for a little as € 10 to € 15. 
Arrive early and make day of it - it's well worth it !

Excellent for all age groups – Bus collects and drops back to resort. This is an excellent water-park. Lots and lots of slides etc., It is a great water park but not a plush as Aquashow and does not have a watercoaster. In my opinion, If you want to spoil yourselves – go to Aquashow. However, others argue that it is a better water park as it has a lot more rides. *** There is a bus that calls to the resort once each day - ask at reception for time table. 

Near Armação de Pêra.Big Aquapark with a lot of high slides. It has a huge amount of rides To name just a few :-
Corkscrew (Anaconda) 
Banzai Boggan - Skim across the water from 23 m high
Kamikaze - 36m in the sky to ground zero in 4 seconds – the highest in Portugal
Semi-Olympic swimming pool
