Things to do in Playa de las Americas

If you like your beach holidays lively, drenched in sunshine and full of character, the coastal resort of Playa de las Americas in south Tenerife will no doubt be right up your street

Just like the resort itself, attractions in Playa de las Americas are usually big, bold and buzzing. Thanks to its location on the breezy south coast, the resort is well geared up for watersports, and you'll find plenty of opportunities for surfing, jet-skiing, windsurfing and the like. Schools like K-16 Surf provide lessons for all abilities as well as equipment hire, or for something a bit more leisurely, you can join a boat trip. There are all sorts of boat excursions, from low-key glass bottom boat tours and dolphin or whale-watching trips, to ferries that take you to the neighbouring islands. And for those who aren't here for the sightseeing, you'll find plenty of booze cruises from Playa de las Americas too - the perfect warm-up for the resort's legendary nightlife.

For something a little more laid-back, Tenerife is home to plenty of golf courses - particularly around the attractive area of Golf del Sur, a short distance from Playa de las Americas. And if you've got the kids in tow, it's well worth spending the day at nearby Siam Park. It's a vast water park and the biggest in Europe, so as you can imagine it's pretty well equipped, and the kids will easily be kept entertained from dawn until dusk. If bathing is your thing, Playa de las Americas is home to a number of beaches, one of which is a glorious stretch of glittering gold with sand that was shipped in from the Sahara!

There are stacks of things to do in and around Playa de las Americas, as well as the rest of the island and further afield. As a holiday destination, the Canary Islands are extremely versatile and packed with a wide variety of things to see and do. Whether you're heading to Tenerife, Costa Teguise in Lanzarote, or if you're looking for tips on visiting Jandia in Fuerteventura, you'll find a growing library of information at Tenerife.com, and plenty of great deals on Canary Island travel too.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
