Water Parks in Malta: Your Ultimate Guide to Splash and Fun, Bugibba, & Quattro

The Maltese islands are blessed with mild weather, stunning picnic areas, and good, old aquatic fun in the form of beautiful beaches, crystal blue waters, and super fun water parks for the whole family. Whether you are looking for exciting water slides or simply a place to relax and soak up the sun, this guide will provide you with all the information you need on attractions, cleanliness and prices. 

There are 3 water parks in Malta: Splash and Fun, Bugibba Water Park, and Quattro Water Park. Each of these parks offers a unique experience, with a variety of attractions, dining options, and more.

Splash and Fun 

Splash and Fun is Malta’s largest water park located in Bahar Ic-Caghaq, in the heart of Malta. This park offers a variety of water slides, pools, and attractions for all ages, making it a family-friendly experience for everyone. However, there are some negative reviews regarding its overall state and cleanliness. 


From thrilling slides to a lazy river, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. There are several swimming pools, water slides, a large wave pool, a lazy river, and plenty of deck chairs to relax on.

The park has a dedicated children’s area in the form of a shallow Dinosaur Park and Splash Land. This means parents can sit back and relax whilst keeping a watchful eye on their young swimmers. There’s also an animation team that makes sure there is always something happening: tropical dance, salsa lessons, aerobics, pool volleyball, and more.

One of the park’s highlights is the “Freefall”, a thrilling slide that drops you into a large pool of water. For those looking for a more relaxed experience, the “Lazy River” is a great option. Float along the river and enjoy the sun, or take a dip in one of the many pools.

Cleanliness and Facilities

Despite the fun attractions, the Splash and Fun Water park in Malta seems to be a disappointing experience for visitors. According to reviews, the facilities and hygiene standards are poor. It is described as having dirty public areas – notably, the toilets need to be kept clean. Additionally, there need to be more lockers since most of them are broken, despite theft being a concern. Overall, the water park is described as old, shabby, and needing refurbishment. 

As a local, although I love to visit Splash and Fun, I stay away during the peak season (the last week of June till the second week of September). The large number of people means that the staff cannot keep up the maintenance of certain standards of hygiene. 

Although the water park is certainly in need of refurbishment, there is still fun to be had – just make sure you don’t walk around barefoot. I would recommend spending half a day rather than a full day. 


These are the prices during the low season (mid-May till the end of June, then mid-September till the end of October): 

AdultsChildren (3-12 years old)
Full Day€23.50€16.00
Half Day (13:00 till 18:00)€16.50€11.00

These are the prices during the peak season (last week of June till the second week of September): 

AdultsChildren (3-12 years old)
Full Day€26.50€17.00
Half Day (15:00 till 20:00)€19.50€13.00

When it comes to purchasing food, the restaurant prices are reasonable and match prices elsewhere.

Buġibba Water Park

The Buġibba Water Park located here, is a water park in Malta with a range of thrilling activities for children of all ages. It is only open from July to September 10:00 to 19:00, and is divided into three sections based on height and age.

The park is spread across 800 square meters, allowing it to hold up to 50 children at one go. Each child is assigned a 20-minute session, so you can wait for a short period if the park is full.

If you are visiting Malta with kids in tow, you may want to consider staying in this area. There is a an expensive, but good all inclusive hotel in St Paul’s Bay as detailed in Erika’s guide on Malta with kids.


The Bugibba Water Park offers a range of thrilling activities for children of all ages. Some of the highlights include water slides, water umbrellas, parasols, a bucket tower, a palm spring, and two water cannons. 

Upon arrival, children receive a coloured wristband that indicates the section they are assigned to:

  • Green Section for toddlers under 80 cm tall, featuring Liquid Tunnel, Sea Jelly, and Liquid Jail attractions.
  • Yellow Section for children between 80 cm and 1.20 m tall, including Water Loops Trio, Parasol, Umbrella, Cat Tail-Leaf, and Cat Tail Water activities.
  • Blue Section for children up to 1.60 m tall, with Palm Spring, Spray-zy Daisy water cannons, and Bucket Tower attractions.

Cleanliness and Facilities

The Buġibba Water Park is monitored continuously for the safety and peace of mind of parents and children – although parents should always supervise their children. The water is purified, sterilised through UV and chlorine, and regularly tested to guarantee it is safe for children to play in. The park also features locker rooms, restrooms, and a security/water park attendant room. 

Buġibba Water Park is also right above the beach and has shady sitting spots for parents. 


Admission to the Buġibba Water Park is free! There is no need to book. Besides bottled mineral water, food and drinks are prohibited inside the park. Admissions are granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Quattro Water Park

The Quattro Water Park located here, is the smallest of Malta’s water parks, but not suitable for young children. The minimum recommended age is 6 years old, but having been to this park myself, I know it could be very dangerous for a small child. It is necessary to be a good swimmer to enjoy this water park, which is why older children, teenagers, and even adults would have a blast.


This water park is located in Għadira Bay. It comprises inflated slides and obstacles that can be scaled, slid, or jumped off. To reach it, you need to swim up to it. 

It operates during the summer (June-September) from 10:00 to 20:00. 

Cleanliness and Facilities

Given that it is floating in the Mediterranean sea, there are no particular facilities to write about. 


The pricing as of summer 2022 was as follows: 

Hour/s Price
All day€20.00
