Waterworld / Strand

During summer (September to April), Waterworld in Strand opens its doors for people of all ages to have some massive fun on the water slides or at the play areas on land. If your kids love to play in the water, this is the perfect spot for them! The water park is located directly at the beachfront, but it’s nicely protected from the wind and you’ll find plenty of grassy areas to sit down, relax and even have a picnic.

They also have benches with umbrellas if you prefer that seating option. And of course, toilets and changing rooms are available, too!

Now, let’s dive right into the many attractions that await the swimmers. First of all, some of the pools have solar-heated water which is especially nice for the younger children and those who are a bit sensitive when it comes to cold water (like me!).

Most water slides are built for children starting at the age of 3 years like the Supertube (Age 3+), the Speed Slide (Age 3+), the Mini Slide (Age 3-10) and the Pool (Age 3+). However, the little ones can have some splash fun too in the designated Double Kiddies Pool (Age 0-6) or the Kiddies Double Speed Slide (Age 1-6).

There are also lots of amazing play areas on land in case the kids need a little break from the water. They have jungle gyms, climbing nets, slides, trampolines, an adventure play area and mini action sport courses.

When you’re getting hungry, you and the kids can take a small bite and cool drink at the Waterworld Cafe. They serve a small variety of hot food including hot dogs, toasties or food combos with chips. They also cater ice cream and yummy sweet treats (lollipops, slushies, crisps, chocolate) for the kiddies. You can find an overview of their menu here: MENU
