Acua Water Park

This is an updated information about the water-park in Corralejo, previously known as Baku Park. Baku Park wasn’t just a water park, there used to be many things to do but this part of Baku Park has been closed and the park is renamed to Acua Water Park. There is people talking about reopening the rest of the park but it still doesn’t looks like it’s going to happen in the near future. We’ll keep you up to date once/if they reopen the rest of Baku Park.

Acua Water Park is also commonly known as Corralejo water park. This is the only water park in Fuerteventura and you should definitely go there at least once. The park is not too big nor small with 4 big slides, 4 smaller slides, the wave pool that is on only on certain times and much much more. There is plenty of fun to fill one day for the whole family. If you don’t have the whole day, try to pop in after 2PM to get a reduced ticket for the afternoon. Let’s talk prices.

Acua Water Park prices

The food and drinks is quite good quality and everything is well priced considering they could charge a much more being inside the water park with no competition.

Talking about prices, you’ll be able to rent your own inflatable ring for about 5 Euro (plus 5 Euro refundable deposit) or have to wait for a free one. Sometimes the queues are almost to the bottom of the slides, sometimes (especially afternoon) you don’t have to queue at all.

Another cost to consider is the locker. Each will cost 4.50 Euro but they are big enough to use only one for the whole family.

Fancy a WiFi connection in the water park? It will cost you another 2 Euro. Shame to pay for something you usually have free at the hotel pool or in most of the restaurants in Fuerteventura.

Entrance cost:

  • Adult ticket: 25 € (20 € after 2PM)
  • Child*: 19 € (14 € after 2PM)
  • Ticket for couple of days: 38 € per adult and 29 € per child*
  • One week ticket: 85 € per adult and 60 € per child*
  • Children under 3 years: Free
  • Disabled person 5 €

*Note: Child is considered up to age of 11 years.

Pricing is the only downside of the Acua water park and that’s the reason why we have a secret tip for you. If you’re not happy to pay those entry prices, pay attention and try to get some free scratch cards with brochures in the airport from ladies giving them free to newcomers to the island as part of advertising. Usually you can “score” buy one get one free or half price for the second person.

There’s also a free bus from Caleta de Fuste, Jandia and Costa Calma if you’re not staying in Corralejo. And free parking next to the entrance if you’re coming with your car.

Acua Water Park Market

The excitement of visiting Acua Water Park is furthermore enhanced by the hosting of the so-called Mercadillo de Corralejo, twice a week, in the immediate proximity of Acua Water Park, a market of no little importance for the shopping picture of Corralejo. The entrance is about 100 yards (90 meters) past Acua Water Park going to the town.

The market is held every Monday and Friday between 09:00 and 14:00.

A really good range of stalls with many people selling wood carvings, paintings, hand made jewelery and replica bags and belts, T-shirts, cup hats, etc. If you love haggling as much as I do you simply can’t ignore this market.

The bottom line is Acua Water Park is an ideal place where you can spend high quality time in the company of your family and friends, experiencing at the same time, the amazing magic of Fuerteventura.

Last tip: Go on the top of the highest slide and take a look around. You’ll be able to see massive part of the island, almost the whole Corralejo and even mountains of the neighbor island – Lanzarote.

La Oliva beaches

La Oliva is the municipality which hosts the most numerous beaches on the entire island. Also, nudism is practised here on a large scale. Corralejo is the most popular resort in La Oliva, a feature yielded both by its beach and shopping opportunities, as well as by its status of main nightlife hotspot of Fuerteventura. Back to most popular beaches in municipality La Oliva.

XXVIII International Kite Festival Fuerteventura 2015

Kite professionals and fans around the world will meet from 5th to 8th November 2015 at the 28 edition of the International Kite Festival held at the Dunes of Corralejo Natural Park. This Kite Festival began in 1987 thanks to the initiative of a group of amateur kite flyers, who selflessly promoted a meeting that brings together every year audience of tourists and kite enthusiasts. The festival is visited by regional and international kite flyers mostly from the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Spain. They will paint with colours the sky of Corralejo and El Cotillo beach at a festival, that after more than a quarter of a century, has extensive national projection internationally and a significant impact on the media.

The festival is organized by the Department of Tourism of the City of La Oliva and will begin 5th November 2015.

Throughout the days of the event, incredible massive kites can be seen flying over the beaches of Fuerteventura, making the Corralejo Nature Reserve an even more spectacular sight. This is a good opportunity to discover this space for the first time, or to revisit its immense sand dunes, radiant sun with its views over the Isla de Lobos Nature Reserve in the background.

Last year the mayor of La Oliva, Claudia Morales, and the Councillor for Tourism, Marcelino Umpiérrez, presented the twenty-seventh edition, together with the organizers of the event, and Claudio Jacinto Rodriguez Azzali, who announced that school township will also have an important role during the event.

The program will start on Thursday 5th November on playa de la Concha (El Cotillo), with a display of acrobatic flight and static kites, although the inaugural flight will be one day later on Friday at Playa del Burro next to the great dunes of Corralejo National Park.

Numerous free kites are handed out so that kids and adults can participate, don’t be shy and grab one!
Date: From 5th November to 8th November.

November 5th in El Cotillo

From 6th to 8th November at the “Playa del Burro”,  Corralejo.
