Sprawling across 20,000 square meters within the Atlantique Holiday Club in Kusadasi Beach, Tortuga Pirate Island is a place for adventure, discovery, and serenity. There are eight different pools with 14 water slides, three fall pools, wipe-out activities, and its own man-made river. 

Families can take to the wipe-out area to amp up the competition while little ones can enjoy the Octopus and pirate pools. The park is named after Tortuga island, the desert island in the Caribbean, and part of the fun is in the legend behind the name. Tortuga was in the hands of pirates for centuries and the stories live on in this adventure park in Turkey. 

As well as adrenaline-fueled activities and specialist experiences, the park also plays host to live DJ performances, several food and beverage options, and an exciting kids club. The park is located close to Kuşadası Beach, a large resort on Turkey’s western Aegean Coast and a major cruise ship port. The town is a stepping stone to the ancient ruins of Ephesus and Pigeon Island with its walled Byzantine castle that once guarded the town. 

Tortuga Pirate Island is a great place to visit with kids, and a must-see if you’re staying on the Atlantique Holiday Club Site. Weekends are reserved for families only and prices start at €10 for kids and €13 for adults.

Located just a short distance from the city center, Aquapark is the most popular water park on the Bodrum Peninsula and one of the best water parks in Turkey. A recreational hub for adults and children, you’ll find pools of different depths, 23 slides of varying abilities, wave machines, and a 350-meter artificial river. 

Formerly known as Dedeman Water Park, Aquapark was the first and largest water park in Turkey when it opened its doors in 1993. The park sprawls across 36,000 square meters with a complex of pools, lagoons, and rides punctuating the site. Water slopes, jacuzzis, and artificial beaches can be found among the decorative, tropical decor. The most popular attractions are the Tarzan and Superkamikaze high-speed slides. 

Bodrum is a port city that reaches from Turkey’s southwest coast into the Aegean Sea. The city’s twin bays overlook the Bodrum castle, a medieval fortress conjured from the stones from the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World finished in the 4th Century BC. Bodrum is as much a cultural destination as it is a gateway to some of Turkey’s best resorts. 

Guests at Aquapark can enjoy a day of action within the city, but it’s also a place to unwind and bask in the sun with loungers and umbrellas surrounding every pool. The central area houses several bars, restaurants, souvenir shops, and photo booths. Tickets start from €10 per child and €20 for adults.

Does Turkey have theme parks?

It might be better known for its distinct culture and ancient landmarks, but Turkey is home to a number of theme parks with thrilling roller coasters and rides for visitors of all ages. You’ll also find some of the best water parks in Turkey within its theme parks like the Land of Legends in Antalya with its very own Aqua Land. 

When is the best time to visit Marmaris Turkey?

Set on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, Marmaris benefits from a temperate Mediterranean climate with long hot summers and short mild winters. The hottest month is July, with soaring daily highs of 90 degrees Fahrenheit. If you want to escape the heat, Marmaris is a great destination for some winter sun too, but things really start heating up in the shoulder season from March to June when you can avoid the summer holiday crowds.
