A great day out, kids 9&11 had a great time. Plenty of slides, something for everyone. From previous reviews I expected longer wait times for the slides and food but was pleasantly surprised. We waited around 10 mins for food. Locker and parasol £15 euros + a 10 euro refundable deposit.

We really enjoyed ourselves. From 14 years old to 81 years old. A stable boat with both shade and sun. Nice music playing. Lovely stop in a cove with crystal clear waters and fun stuff to do. Kind, attentive staff. A must!
