Zoomarine is a popular marine theme park located in Guia, which is only a 20-minute drive from Albufeira. Take the opportunity to interact with the dolphins in the specially created pool and dolphin centre, hidden away from the main park. Learn all about the dolphins and their amazing agility and intelligence before taking to the water with them and their trainers.
Zoomarine prides itself on the fact that all their animal shows and exhibitions are educational and promote awareness of ecological and conservation issues. They also have a Rehabilitation Centre that rescues and rehabilitates marine species that have washed up along the coastline.
There are also pools and water slides at Zoomarine, as well as a wave pool and a beach set in tropical gardens. Not forgetting the Aquatic Playground, where younger children can explore the pirate’s treasure chests and water barrels. The mini-theme park, with its carousels and Ferris wheel, is also popular as is the show at Pirate Bay where you can watch the acrobatic antics of the pirates fighting over the treasure.
The park is open from March to November and is a fantastic place to keep the whole family entertained.
