The jewels of the Canary Islands: Las Argollas | Bahia Principe

Tenerife is an island where the coastline looks out over the Atlantic Ocean. Tenerife is famous for its carnival and its mild climate, which is why they call it the island of eternal spring. Tenerife is a combination of its four strongest features: the Atlantic Ocean, nature, comprehensive services and the always friendly and up-beat personality of its people.

The island offers countless ways to enjoy yourself. You’ll find gorgeous beaches on which to enjoy the sea. You’ll enjoy an endless list of different experiences: unspoilt beaches, vista points, festivals, traditional food and the impressive Teide National Park. Bear in mind that one of the biggest advantages of this island is that you can travel from north to south and explore different and highly varied landscapes in a very short space of time. You can enjoy a holiday of enormous variety without needing to travel long distances.

If you’re thinking about taking a souvenir home from the island but can’t decide what… keep reading. We recommend the Argollas Canarias, earrings in the shape of a half moon that are highly characteristic of the Canarian identity.

Women were already wearing these jewels in 2500 BC, and their appearance on the islands dates back to the time of the Conquistadors. These earrings are usually made from gold or silver, but you can also find them in various other materials due to the popularisation of this traditional craft which aims to represent the authenticity of the islands.


So if you want a souvenir of your visit to Tenerife, they are a safe bet and a highly original idea. Besides supporting local handicrafts, you will also get an innovative designer piece with artistic engraving that also embodies something very special: the continuation of Canarian authenticity.

If you still can’t decide where to sleep on the island, look no further. Your perfect Bahia Principe hotel awaits.For an exciting holiday full of colour, take a look at Costa Adeje. This areas is located in the south-west of the island and offers some charming walks for shopping, a wide range of activities and some spectacular beaches only a stone’s throw away from all the services you need to spend a few days of sunshine in complete comfort. Bahia Principe Sunlight Costa Adeje and Bahia Principe Sunlight Tenerife are two hotels where you can have a great time while relaxing and contemplating the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy local flavours, stroll through their gardens and bask in the very best of Tenerife.

If you prefer your holidays to be pure sunshine and relaxation, take a look at the Golf del Sur area. This is perfect for families because all you’ll need to worry about is enjoying the moment. Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife is a hotel full of magic on the island of eternal spring. A new family holiday concept for families in Spain.


And if you want a holiday next to the beach and a stone’s throw from the city, take a look at Puerto de la Cruz. You’ll find a beachfront location without losing the urban activity you want to enjoy on holiday. At Bahia Principe Sunlight San Felipe, the location and spectacular views of Mount Teide and the Atlantic Ocean from its guest rooms make it a very special place in the heart of Puerto de la Cruz. The best option for discovering Tenerife.
