Parque Marítimo del Mediterráneo

Lonely Planet review

This creative maritime park is one of several versions developed by the brilliant artist and architect César Manrique of the Canary Islands. He borrowed the city-walls theme to construct a huge pool deck on the sea, including a grand lagoon and two other saltwater pools, surrounded by 10 bars, pubs, restaurants, cafes and a disco. A central island holds a fortress casino . A pictorial display of Manrique’s work lies just inside the entrance, 50m to the right. This is a real hit in the summer, and perfect for families.
