Water parks in Cornwall
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.
Haven’s Riviere Sands pools
Address: Riviere Towans, Hayle TR27 5AX
Our Riviere Sands Holiday Park sits on the cliffs overlooking the white sands of St Ives Bay. Below, you can try paddle boarding and surfing. But for those who aren’t ready to set foot in the sea, or who prefer the warmer temperatures of a heated pool, we have the facilities to welcome you.
The indoor and outdoor pools are both heated, plus the former can be used in all weather. So, make sure to pack your swimwear so you can enjoy the water flumes during your stay.
