This is the second part of my Tenerife diaries series, so if you haven’t already seen part 1 then click here to be redirected. This post only contains two days so I think it will be the shortest post of the three, but we crammed in a lot regardless and I have a lot of recommendations to cram into this Tenerife diaries. Plus I think it is a nice post to look back on in the future.
We had a lie in this morning, as we were on holiday after all! We actually had some light work to do in the morning (uni module choices and a couple of business things that needed sorting out on Monday morning), so we had quite a productive start. Although laid on a balcony in the sunshine is not a bad place to work!
We got ready properly around lunchtime, and jumped in a taxi to playa de las americas. I had been on a night out there before, but I had never walked around during the day. We spent the rest of the afternoon in the heat (it was the hottest day we were there and my goodness it was HOT) shopping, having some drinks and exploring the town. I particularly loved a shop we went in called ALE-HOP, and I’m gutted that they don’t have them in the UK.
We didn’t actually go to the beach on this trip (maybe next time) but we got to sit by the sea and watch the waves crash for a while as well, which I really enjoyed. Its so relaxing, and reminded me of home because I live by the sea.
We decided to go to the hard rock cafe for late lunch/early dinner, as I have never been to the Tenerife one and it is huge (and also has a hotel!). Now this is where things started getting silly. We were in ‘holiday mode’ and weren’t really thinking about what we were ordering. Now when I say we ordered enough food for 4 people, I genuinely meant it. I even think the waiters were laughing at us… it was that extravagant. We spent so much money, but it was so good and I don’t regret it, even if it did mean that we were waddling back to the hotel at the end of the day! These 3 Tenerife diaries posts are just turning into food recommendations I swear!
After all of that food, we weren’t going to go out for a late dinner, so once again we spent the evening sat on the balcony and relaxing whilst watching the sunset (and feeling incredibly full and uncomfortable from my family sized meal I had earlier in the day!).
After another lie in (this is becoming a theme!), we decided to go to the spa for the morning. This was never on our ‘must do’ list for Tenerife, but after seeing a really good offer in the hotel reception we decided to do it. Spas in the UK are super expensive, so it was good to experience something that would most certainly be out of our budget at home.
I didn’t take any photos of the spa for this Tenerife diaries post, because there were a lot of people relaxing who wouldn’t want to be caught on camera. Plus my phone was in my locker so I could relax as well! However, I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend the Aqua club Termal if you are wanting a relaxing day, and something a bit different. I tried lots of new things, and it was so relaxing too.
We got ready on the evening, and headed out for another nice meal. This time we went to Rossini’s near our hotel, which was quite cheap but tasted so good. Then this is where the evening gets really special. We had a walk down to the harbour (which neither of us had done before) and had a little walk around, when we saw a cocktail bar in the distance with a little thatched roof. We both said it looked cute, and that we should walk to it for a cocktail before we headed back to the hotel.
This honestly turned into the most romantic night of my life… and I am not one for PDA so it must have been special! We sat outside on our own little table with cocktails, and watched the sunset. We had incredibly deep chats, and just had some hours just us. We didn’t go on our phones apart from to take photos of the sunset (because how couldn’t you snap a photo of that?) and just spend quality time with each other. It was such a special night and one of the highlights of my holiday for sure.
So that was another 2 days of my Tenerife diaries series. There is one more instalment to go, which will go up at some point this week. I hope you are enjoying them so far! Sorry that this post is a little shorter, but the next one has 3 days in it again to end the Tenerife diaries with a bang. As always, thank you so much for reading this and supporting my blog.
