During your stay in Albufeira, one of the Algarve’s summer gems and one of the most sought-after holiday resorts in the Algarve region, Portugal, there are a number of different activities you should try out and take advantage of.
Theme and water parks are probably the best way to keep your family entertained and the little ones busy with their amazing rides, wildlife presentation shows, and many more. Zoomarine and Aquashow, with its adjacent hotel, are two of the greatest amusement venues in the Algarve region and are right in the heart of Albufeira and easily reachable by car or shuttle bus.

Located in Guia, a few kilometres away from Albufeira, Zoomarine is a beautiful theme and water park inspired by marine life. This massive venue is the perfect place for you and your family spend a whole day or more and take advantage of the many activities, such as presentations with dolphins, seals, sea lions, tropical birds, and birds of prey.
Zoomarine also aims to teach the little ones about conservation and environmental education, as well as show them what the wildlife can offer best. At Zoomarine, you will also be able to find an aquarium with sharks, various habitats for different species, such as alligators and aquatic birds, Cinema4D — which uses the latest technology in cinema to show visitors the sea turtle’s fantastic journey through the ocean —, attractions, swimming pools, and many other amusing activities.
At Zoomarine, you will be invited to partake in the dolphin show, an interactive show with the trainers in which the dolphins show off their acrobatic moves and tender behaviour. There are two package experiences available (Dolphin Emotions Premium and Dolphin Emotions Exclusive) and for those interested in getting to know the dolphins a little bit better, including swimming with them and learning about its biology and ecology.
