The Best water parks in Mallorca – Majorca
The answer to which is the best water park in Mallorca is not easy at all, and probably the most accurate answer is it depends! We know it sound confusing and not very helpful, but let us explain you on this article why we believe this will be the right answer and some considerations to have in mind before deciding what water park to visit in Mallorca.
In Mallorca we have 3 water parks: Western water park, Aqualand Arenal and Hidropark. All of them are open only during the Summer season, from May to October though in many cases Aqualand Arenal and Western water Park close in September. Recently some hotels have also included a water park area, but rather than a proper water park is more a few slides, so this is why we concentrate just on those four water parks.
There is not one better than the other, they are just simply different. Some people would prefer one water park above other, depending on different factors. For example, if you have to travel, the price, if you are a family or young people…
What to do have in mind to decide what is for you the best water park in Majorca?
As we are a company based in the North of Mallorca, and operating from the resorts of Port Pollensa, Port Alcudia, Can Picafort and Playa de Muro, when deciding what the best water park is and consequently what water park to visit, there are some things to have in mind. We believe these are the most important:
- Travel distance
- Size of the water park
- Opening dates
From our point of view these are the most important decision points but you might also like to check some youtube videos, reviews on trip advisor…
Travel distances to the water park from North Area

Another important thing to have in mind are the opening dates. On this matter Hidropark Alcudia is the water park that remains opened longer, from May to October. Aqualand Arenal and Western water park open from middle May until September. So you might have only one possible option depending on the time of the year.
