The Entrance To The PortAventura Aquatic Park
The Entrance To The PortAventura Aquatic Park
The PortAventura Aquatic Park is right next door to the Port Aventura Theme Park. It's all part of the same complex. The Port Aventura theme park is the larger and more well known of the two parks and tends to be the one you'll see the signposts for when you approach by road.

Port Aventura and the PortAventura Aquatic Park were also once collectively known as 'Universal Studios' although this is no longer the official name, you may still see some old sign posts with this name on them.

The park is 5 minutes drive from the resort of Salou which is on the coast.

You have to go through the same entry point to get to the PortAventura Aquatic Park as you do for Port Aventura. This means if you are travelling by car that you will have to pay a parking fee at the toll booths.

Parking fee: €12.00

tip I've visited the park twice. Once in July and once in August. In August it was noticeably more busy, so you'll have to be prepared to queue for up to half an hour if you arrive in the morning. When I left in the afternoon there were significantly less people queuing to get in.

tip You need a big rubber ring to go on most of the rides. The rubber rings are supplied as doubles or singles.


If You Don't Get To The PortAventura Aquatic Park Early In August There May Not Be Any Rubber Rings Left
If You Don't Get To The PortAventura Aquatic Park Early In August There May Not Be Any Rubber Rings Left

On my visit in August there were no rubber rings left once I got to the front of the queue at 11:30, and so I couldn't get on some of the flumes or float round the lazy river.

The PortAventura Aquatic Park is a reasonably priced day out for all the family. In August there will be queues to get in for the first two or three hours after the park opens, and if you arrive later you may not be able to get hold of a rubber ring. However there's room to sit and relax in the sun and splash about in the pools.
