To get the most value for your money, it is recommended that you arrive at the park very early, as the cost for the daily pass is the same throughout the whole day – also, seats are limited, so better come early to claim your spot.

Those who just want to have a lazy day on the beach can take their towels and find a spot on one of five thematic beaches stretching over four kilometers on the beautiful coastline.

This family resort also offers five hotels for accommodation, ranging from three to five stars, outdoor pools, shops, beach clubs, bars, and restaurants – an excellent destination for a real family vacation.
