They started the bussines this summer, one month ago, more or less.They take care of kids. In the morning, they take them to the beach, then, they play tennis or paddle; also, they go to the swimmingpool of "Hotel Dos Mares", and, of course, they enjoy it very much. They can eat there and have painting, language learning, games and several other activities in the afternoon.

This is a general view of Bahia Park, from one of the the highest slides (Multipistas = several trails; concretely there are 4 trails).Bahia Park is just beside Algeciras, quite near the centre and situated closed the top of Villa Palma Avenue.
On the left side, you can see another slides, which have several bends. And, on the left side, you can see a little beach, with waves, sometimes, of course.
The name of this slide is: Kamikace.Here, you only can throw your self with a big float (named "Donut"), which you can rent there, in the entrance of the Park.You can throw only yoursel or in group.
This is the slide "Multipistas".I tried it and I can tell you that it is so funny.
This is the beach, with little waves.
Those are the slides with bends, that I told you before.
This is the other beach, without waves.In the middle of the picture, you can see a big and yellow drum (barril) that, when it is full of water, it turns and empty all the water over the people who is waiting for it under.
This is the other swimmingpool, where you can travel along the zip-line.
This is the swimmingpool for children.
At the top of the picture, you can see a big yellow slide; and to the left, there is an orange one.
If you go before 3 : 30 pm, you will have pay 16 Euros; but, if you go after that hour, you will have pay 11 Euros.The funfair is closed at 7 : 30 pm; but you have to leave the complex at 8 pm; it open at 10 : 30 am.

I took this picture yesterday afternoon, in the beach "Dos Mares".At the end of the picture, on the left, you can see the village of Tarifa.On the right side, is the island (it is a Naval Base); and, behid, is África --as you can see, yesterday, the visibility was good--.
Everything started when I arrived to the Hotel "Dos Mares".Suddenly, I looked at the beach and I could see several sails of Kite-furf.This was my vision of that:
But here, there were few sails.Then, I went down to the sand, I looked to the left and I could see much more sails of Kite :
With the next picture, you can see what I was seeing with my camera and the zoom, in front of the hotel :
After that, I went up to the swimmingpool and, from there, I could make this next picture :
To the left side of this picture, you can see another view :
I turned right and I could see another view very interesting :
And a little bit to the right side, you can see the School of Kite-Surf "Escuela Dos Mares":
After that, I went down to the sand, to the left of the picture that you have seen upstairs, and started to see people who was preparing their sails:
I continued walking by the seashore and I could enjoy this next view:
Walking a little bit more, I could find this spectacle :
But, in that moment, I turned back my head and I could see another nice view; on the right side of the picture, you can see the famous dunes of Valdevaqueros --they are the highest dunes in Europe-- and I listened on the radio that, this last week, has been celebrated one heat of the World Championship of Kite-Surf thre, in the beach of Valdevaqueros.
Now, I will show you another nice view, which I could enjoy, against the light. Along all this coast, you can see this effect, in the afternoon, and over the see, you can see this special light, similar to the silver color :
