Almunecar - water park

Had a lovely day out here. Purchased a family ticket.

PArking is a problem in Alumunecar. As you pass the waterpark you will find car parks at either side. I belive the cost was 2 euros, well worth it.

The water in the park is saltwater. Makes you a little itchy if you're not used to it.

You can purchase rings for rental when you go in, this means that you don't have to wait for the "resident" floats and therefore can queue for the rides whenever you want.

We arrived around 11am and there were not many queues at all so there really was no need to rent one. You have the added problem of looking after the ring, say if you wanted to go to toilet/for something to eat etc.

We saw one gentleman and his son return to where they'd left there rings to find them gone. As well as paying for the rental you have to leave a deposit - so they would have lost that.

There is a black tunnel and a windy tunnel that you need floats for, the rest you don't.

There is a great little waterpark for the younger kids (see pic)

Almunecar Fiera

This seems to take place in the second week of August. We hit on lucky. We arrived the Mon 12th and saw the fairground.

On the Wednesday we visited the fairground/shows. It started at around 9pm ish. There was a large ferris wheel - which went really fast!

Loads of other shows like dodgems, bouncy play areas etc. The cost was quite reasonable 1.5 euros per ride. However we also went on the Saturday and the costs had doubled!

Lots of the spanish were dressed in the traditional dresses. The kids looked great.

There are also lots and lots of eaterie places.

On the Saturday there was a fabulour firework display - best i've seen. Again we hit on lucky, we just happened to be heading to the beach and the fireworks started. Once it was finished around 11pm everyone then moved on to the shows
