Home to the magnificent UNESCO-listed Alhambra Palace, Granada is one of the great Andalucian cities, and it’s easy to visit on a day trip from nearby Seville. To help you find the perfect tour for you, here's a rundown of the options available.
Magic Island Park (Parque Isla Magica)
Varies by season.
Isla de la Cartuja, Seville, 41092
Magic Island Park is one of Andalucia’s most popular family attractions, and park goers have several options for visiting. Besides a basic entrance ticket, you can choose from combined tickets to both Magic Island and its new sister water park. Or opt for an afternoon-only ticket—an especially good value on summer Saturdays when the park remains open to midnight. Magic Island is one of the stops on the Seville hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus.
Good Day Out!
Not far from Seville city centre & ideal if you want a water park in the day & theme park at night. A good day out!

Things to Know Before You Go
Magic Island Park is a must for families with kids and thrill-seekers.
Bring sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and plenty of water—Seville is one of the hottest cities in Spain. Expect temperatures around 95°F (35°C) in July and August.
Opening hours vary considerably throughout the year, so be sure to check ahead.
Much of the park is accessible to wheelchair users.
How to Get There
The theme park is situated about two miles (three kilometers) northwest of El Centro. It’s walkable from the La Macarena district by passing over the Barqueta Bridge. Buses C1 and C2 take passengers from El Centro to the park’s front entrance.
When to Get There
Due to the park’s popularity, it’s a good idea to arrive early and head straight for the star attractions before lines get too long. Plan to stay (or return) after dark for the worthwhile fountain shows.
Agua Magica, the Beach of Seville
In 2014 the Magic Island amusement park debuted Agua Magica, a water park expansion that includes a small wave pool, an artificial beach, a variety of swimming pools, several slides, a lazy river, and a water feature–packed play area. Agua Magica is open from March or April to October, and hosts special events around Halloween and Christmas.
