I am suffering from MAJOR holiday blues right now! It’s been almost 2 weeks since I was jetting off to Tenerife with my fiance for a week of relaxation and sunshine. We stayed in the Paloma Beach Apartments in Los Christianos. We had the best time and it was lovely to be able to spend so much quality time together.
Day 1; Tuesday 16th May
The flight was slightly delayed getting into Tenerife due to winds but we made it and arrived around 9pm. It was still warm at this time and we were so excited to get to our hotel and get some food! Upon arriving at the apartments, we spotted a wee black cat (a great sign for feeling at home!) and were given an envelope including instructions on how to get to our apartment. Once we had checked in, we went a walk down the street to where some restaurants and bars were located. We went into the Indian restaurant and had some korma. It was good and by the time we had finished eating, I was falling asleep at the table!
Day 2; Wednesday 17th May
The next morning, we had a bit of a lie in before going down to the pool bar for breakfast. We then headed along the sea front and found some lovely beaches. We had our first freshly squeezed orange juice *heart eyed emoji* and found a little street cat which we called Pailey (he was adorable!)
Day 3; Thursday 18th May
We had such a relaxing day by the pool. It was so peaceful and we had great fun playing around in the pool (after Connor pushed me in haha).
Day 4; Friday 19th May
We went a walk along to the beach and went into a little cafe for a nutella crepe and orange juice. It was fab! We enjoyed chilling on the beach for a while before going exploring. For dinner, we ordered the most delicious pizza (PizzaYPasta-Los Christianos)
Day 5; Saturday 20th May
This was the best day ever! We went to Siam Park (the most amazing water park!) and travelled there on an open-top bus. This was incredible to see the sights of Tenerife. Siam Park is stunning, it felt so magical and like we were in a jungle. The aesthetics of the place are amazing! We loved going on all the different rides and some of them were so crazy! Because it wasn’t mega busy, we got to go on our favourite rides a few times each. We went on all the rides, except I was too scared to go on the Tower of Power. Can you blame me, with a name like that?! Connor went on it though and I watched him from the bottom. My heart was in my mouth when I saw him at the top! It was a very high kamikaze slide and it looked insane! I was happy sticking to the less scary (but still crazy) rides. We bought some hats to take home as a memento of the day and on the way back to the apartments, we had a bit of a mishap on the bus…Connor’s hat flew off his head and whacked the guy a few rows behind us in the face! Luckily he was okay and found it funny! It was hilarious and made my day! We were so exhausted when we got back and our feet were agony after walking barefoot all day but it was so worth it! I would highly recommend that if you go to Tenerife, to definitely go to Siam Park. I would go back just to go there for a day.
Day 6; Sunday 21st May
We decided to have a chill day as we were so exhausted from Siam Park, so we lounged in the apartment and then went to the beach for a bit. We also found another place (The Corner- Los Christianos) that did crepe’s and this was the most amazing crepe I have ever had! On the way back to the apartment, we went to a bar for a drink and to watch some football. It was a lovely chilled out day.
Day 7; Monday 22nd May
We enjoyed a full proper day at the beach, playing around in the sea and snuggling up with our books. The sand was so hot but so lovely! I felt so peaceful and happy being next to the sea. I love the smell of the sea air and I love people-watching. We also stopped at the pebble beach on the way back and seen some incredible waves coming in as a ship was leaving the harbour.
Day 8; Tuesday 23rd May
For our last day, we spent most of the day at the pool and took a walk along to see Pailey the cat one last time. He was so sweet and was snuggling into us. We found out that he was looked after by the shop owners and got given food from them. This made me really happy that although he was a street cat, he was well looked after. We then went back and had a nap by the pool (as we had to check out of our room early that morning) and then left to go to the airport at 6pm. We arrived back in Scotland about 3am the next morning and we were so happy to see our own little baby cat!
We had the most incredible time away, and for it being my first time in Tenerife I had an amazing experience of the island. I would definitely go back!
Thanks for reading and let me know if you have any holidays planned this year or if any of you have been to Tenerife before- I’d love to hear your experiences!
Love and Light,
