Phuket for kids: Splash Jungle Waterpark
Among Phuket’s top kid-friendly attractions is Splash Jungle Waterpark, which opened back in 2010.
The attractions at Phuket’s Splash Jungle Waterpark will keep most kids happy for an afternoon, at least. Though it’s not massive, it’s a clean, safe facility with a decent selection of waterslides, a play area for younger kids, a wave pool, lazy tube river and “hot spring.”
There are two onsite cafes selling the usual Western fare like burgers, fish and chips and a few Thai dishes.
Suitably, the sprawling high-end resort is ideal for families as many of its rooms and suites feature their own kitchens equipped with washer/drier, dining area and living room.
Downside for some, selling point for others is White Sands’ location. It’s on Mai Khao Beach near Phuket’s international airport, one of the remaining undeveloped strips of sand on Phuket.
Breaking the quiet of the beach is the regular rumble of airplanes firing up their engines and taking off — a great photo op in spite of the noise as they can be seen cruising in and out of Phuket down the beach from White Sands.
Here’s a quick look at some of Splash Jungle’s attractions.
