A Day at the Water Park

A Day at the Water Park

Visit Malta’s water parks for wave pools, water slides and dolphins.

Living on an island has its perks, and having the sea in near-to-constant view is of those perks. The close vicinity to sea from nearly every town means that the Maltese are a wee-bit sea obsessed. So, if you and your kids love being in the water as much as you love what’s in the water, then you will love Mediterraneo Marine Park and Splash and Fun Water Park.

Mediterraneo Marine Park

Mediterraneo Marine Park is a place where a marine lover’s wishes come true. Built on the values of providing edutainment for its visitors, Mediterraneo Marine Park is a great way for adults and children to learn about marine life. Visitors may tour the park to catch a glimpse of its many exhibited species including dolphins, sea lions, parrots, Green Wing Amazons, snakes, tortoises, turtles, frogs, toads, spiders, scorpions and lizards. There are also a number of shows performed during the day by dolphins, sea lions and parrots.  

Interactive programmes with dolphins, parrots and sea lions give visitors the opportunity to experience an extraordinary dry encounter within a small group with bottlenose dolphins, sea lions and parrots, respectively. During this 15 minute programme, participants will be allowed to touch the dolphins and learn hand signals used to communicate with them. Children must be at least 6 years old to participate in this programme. Access to these programmes are included in the ticket price at an extra fee, so please check ticket prices before purchase. The park also has a diverse collection of reptiles, amphibians and arachnids, including snakes, lizards, frogs, spiders, turtles and tortoises.

Mediterraneo Marine Park is conveniently located just off the main Northern coast road, enabling good transport links from most hotels and tourist accommodation.

Splash and Fun Water Park

A visit to Splash and Fun promises to be a great day out, whether you’re feeling wild and adventurous or just want to lie back and relax. Splash and Fun Water Park offers a unique experience for people of all ages, no matter your taste.

If a thrill is what you’re after, the Black Hole would be perfect for you and your teens! Slide through a closed 120m long tube on a torrent of water from the height of 12m. For a more laidback experience, we suggest the family slides, wave pool and lazy river. Plus, you can also find soapy football, family pools, and a diving pool.

Animators provide a fun and lively atmosphere for adults and children alike. Music, dancing, aqua aerobics, face painting, games and competitions, both in and out of the water, are the order of the day at Splash and Fun. The fun doesn’t stop there, at sundown one can enjoy sizzling BBQ nights with live entertainment. Check out Splash and Fun's Facebook page for the latest news. If you’re around during the winter months, Splash and Fun also hosts an indoor and outdoor children’s play area providing a safe and colourful environment for toddlers right through to pre-teens.

Both parks are conveniently located within 1km of each other, and open every day from 9 am to 9 pm in summer, with limited hours throughout the rest of the year. Check out the Splash and Fun website for more information about transportation, and special rates for kids.
