Tenerife highlights

Well hello to you my reader chums! Last week I got back from a relaxing week away in Tenerife with my boyfriend and his family. It was one of those those holidays that meant so much, as I got to spend quality time with my boyfriend's family and enjoy a break to unwind. When I go away, I usually worry about ramming things in making sure I do everything, however this week was super calm and I loved every second. I chilled by the poolside, took strolls on the rocky beach, indulged in food and drink, visited the water park and dabbled in watersports.

Just like all trips, I like to document them on my blog and share tips with you guys. Here are my highlights of Tenerife...

We stayed in the Golf de Sur area at the Santa Barbara Golf and Ocean Club in one of their apartments. The apartment was immaculate and we had the most beautiful view of the ocean from our balcony. As the hotel wasn't in the main hub of Tenerife, it was quieter and made for a peaceful stay. I'd highly recommend it if this is the sort of holiday you're after!

As I mentioned in my previous post about why you should holiday more, everyone needs a break away where they're able to fully unwind and that's what I made the most of. 

Cocktails and evening antics

After days swimming in the pool and getting my tan on, we all got dressed up in the evening for dinners out and lavish cocktails.

Rock pools and beach exploring

Tenerife is renowned for its rocky land, hot climate and black beaches. Dan and I decided to make the most of that and take a stroll down by our hotel which led to a quaint beach and plenty of rock pools. We went crab searching, rock pooling and paddling in the clear blue ocean.

Siam Park

One of my favourite days of the holiday was Siam Park. For those who aren't aware, Siam Park is claimed to be one of the most spectacular water attractions in Europe. The park offered a series of calm to thrilling rides, including one of those drop, vertical slides and a massive pool area. The pool also had an epic wave machine every half hour to and hour. Although the park is very large, we were able to go on majority of the best rides and had a fab time! It's probably the best water park I've ever visited. I'd highly recommend it if you're visiting Tenerife!

Little Mermaid night out

On the Monday night, we all dressed up as the Little Mermaid characters for a night out in Las Americas to celebrate a birthday. Dressing up as a mermaid was so much fun: it meant painting on scales, using all the glitter in sight and wearing a long wig! Las Americas was like an entertainment hub with plenty of restaurants and bars to soak up the island's nightlife. We went to an Irish bar and danced the night away to the live singer.

Jet skiing

Initially, I was very hesitant to go jet skiing because of my massive fear of open water and the thought of falling in. However, although the experience was quite scary, I did it! I finally went jet skiing and zoomed across open water - it was a thrilling experience. Dan drove as I was too nervous, but it felt so free as we were riding the waves and looking around at the stunning views.
