They are in no particular order.
1. Aqualud Water Park
Le Touquet Beach. Housed under a huge glass pyramid the Aqualud water leisure centre is a giant pool with waves, ‘rocky’ slides, jacuzzis, solarium etc. There is also an outdoor section open in summer with 3 more pools, flumes and rides. The Black Hole and the Twister are great where the brave are ejected from the serpent’s mouth at 70 kilometres per hour and finish in a spinning centrifuge before dropping into the pool below.
The kids will love Rock River and the delights of the water cannon for shooting people in the pool. The outdoor has a large terrace with sun beds and overlooks the sea. The all year-round water park is kept at a temperature of 27 degrees and is one of the great water parks in France. There is a cafe inside that serves chips, burgers and sandwiches to keep your energy up on what can be an exhausting day. Day or half day tickets are available, kids under 1m tall go Free.
2. Go To The Beach
