Description: Although these theme parks are not identical, the concept is the same, offering water slides, rapids, wave pools and such like.

Our recommendations: They aren’t particularly cheap, however these water based theme parks make a very pleasant alternative to the beach and the kids will have a great day out there. Port Leucate is cheaper at €15 for both adults and children. Open from mid June to early September.

Location: There are several Aqualand water fun parks in the Languedoc, situated at St Cyprien (heading along the coast to Argelès), Port Leucate (between Port Leucate and Port Barcares) and Cap d’Agde.

General Info: Aqualand website.  Costs €24*(adult) and €18* (child) (both St Cyprien and Cap d’Agde).

For the children: What can we say, these water parks are made for them!
