Sentosa Waterpark in Sambaliung Sub-District, Berau
People have different preferences when it is related to a vacation in Berau District. It is true most of them might choose Derawan Islands as their prime choice of tourist spot. Yet, the others are looking for something simple like a waterpark. In this case, Sambaliung Sub-district becomes a good option for them because it offers a famous family recreation site called Sentosa Waterpark. The fact is it is the first and only waterpark, which is available in Berau District, East Kalimantan. With such popularity, even outsiders are interested to visit it. They come to the location to build a stronger bond with families, especially with their kids.
Like other waterparks, Sentosa offers numerous options of water playgrounds, where tourists can play. The most famous one is the spiral slides! It takes an effort to climb it, but it gives wonderful experiences to everyone. Some smaller slides are also available for those who don’t like high places. As an alternative, visitors can simply play and swim in the water and enjoy its fresh nuance. The ponds come in different depth, after all. That means kids and adults are allowed to get in. On top of that, the environment is quite clean!
Exploring Sentosa Waterpark
The best time to visit Sentosa Waterpark is in holidays and weekends, when more people are seen in the site. This way, visitors can enjoy a merrier nuance and enjoy a family vacation to their heart’s content. The problem is the number of visitors isn’t as much as other waterparks. It is because not all tourists know about the location. Due to this reason, the management tries to lure more visitors by providing discounts to the guests. It is said they give cheaper prices for those coming in a big group, consisting about 50-100 people.
There are several important rules in Sentosa Waterpark, as well. One of them is related to swimsuit and other equipment. Instead of carrying from home, visitors should rent those items. Have no worries. The rent fee is quite affordable! When it comes to snacks and drinks, the guests are recommended to have prepared those beforehand. One thing, they need to take care of the trash later. That means littering is highly prohibited because everyone should keep the environment clean, especially in that waterpark. For parents with kids, they must supervise them well, as some pools are quite deep for children.
Another important consideration is related to bathing. The guests are not allowed to use soap when getting in the water. It is because there are toilets and restrooms, in which they can take a bath. Also, it is better to come with a local tour guide in order to get to the location efficiently. Hiring a tour agency is worth the money, after all.
