Tenerife Siam Park

Siam Park on Tenerife Bordered by an artificial beach of golden sand specially imported from the Algarve in Portugal, the 9000-square metre Wave Palace lake at Siam Park changes dramatically every 20 minutes. Waves at Wave Palace Lake

At first the water is totally calm; then come gentle waves; finally, heralded by the warning sound of a giant Thai gong, it is swept by massive 2.5 metre waves which are the highest artificial waves in the world.

Thanks to its wave-making machinery, the Wave Palace lake at Siam Park on Tenerife is often used by expert surfers in the evening after it has closed to the public and is sometimes the venue for international championships. The surfers are even able to choose from 27 different types of wave to get exactly the size and direction they want.

Above the Wave Palace lake, small chalets are being built amidst the trees on the hillside. Visitors can hire one for the day to provide a base for their visit to the park. They are particularly popular with older people who want to relax quietly while younger members of their family or group enjoy the excitements of the park’s rides and attractions.

Each chalet is equipped with a sofa, sunbeds, shower and mini-bar. They also have wi-fi for computers and a large television set, though with so much to do and watch at the park, not many people choose to spend their time there working at their computer or watching television.

The price of a chalet also includes a fast-track pass to by-pass any queues and a dining ticket entitling the occupants to have as much food and drink as they want at the park’s three bars and two restaurants.

The chalets have a superb view down over the lake, so are in prime position for watching its different phases. And the chalets’ sunbeds offer a much more peaceful place to relax than the rows of them on the lake’s sandy “beach” where there can be as many as 3000 people on a really busy day.

At Siam Park, another relaxing experience is to ride in a bright yellow rubber boat along the gently flowing Lazy River which follows a meandering 3/4-mile circuit past waterfalls, over bubbling geysers and in a transparent tube in through a shark pool. The full ride lasts 20 minutes though there are several places along it to get off early.

Inevitably on busy days, it is necessary to queue at some of the rides and slide. However to protect those waiting in particularly hot weather, the park’s gardeners helpfully turn their cold-water sprays onto them. Buses from Adeje, Playa das Americas and Los Cristianos
