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.
