Sights and Sounds in Costa Teguise

Costa Teguise is one of the most popular resorts in Lanzarote, and it's not hard to see why. It's just a few short miles from the capital, Arrecife, which not only guarantees a short and relatively affordable hotel transfer, it also places the city well within reach of day trips, shopping excursions, sightseeing, or catching a ferry over to the neighbouring islands.

And of course, the delights don't stop at Arrecife. Around Costa Teguise, there are three main beaches which vary from large, sandy Las Cucharas to pebbly El Jabillo and the smaller, quieter strip of Los Charcos. The first two beaches are also where the watersports' enthusiasts hang out, and it's here that you can take lessons or hire gear for all manners of different watersports, from windsurfing and body surfing to jet skiing. Of course, that's only once you've had your fill of relaxing under that scorching Canarian sun...


Flick through any Costa Teguise guide and you'll find that, beaches and watersports aside, Costa Teguise is close to a superb 18-hole golf course - ideal for practising your swing in glorious surroundings. There's also an excellent water park for youngsters (and big kids too) which offers the perfect respite for mum and dad. Let your little darlings slide and splash their way around the watery attractions while you kick back with a good book and a glass of something cool and refreshing.

Costa Teguise is home to numerous events such as various watersports competitions and music festivals. And on a more traditional scale, make some time to visit the lovely Pueblo Marinero - it was designed by the late, great architect C├ęsar Manrique which means it's well worth a visit.
