Cornwall, with its stunning coastline and quaint coastal towns may not be swimming in traditional water parks, but it does offer a variety of amazing aqua experiences for guests at Riviere Sands and Perran Sands holiday parks. 

From refreshing lidos to state-of-the-art leisure centres and our very own on-site water parks, here are our favourite water-based attractions that promise endless fun for families and thrill-seekers alike.
