As the third most popular of Lanzarote's holiday destinations, Costa Teguise offers a vast range of shops, restaurants and accommodation while still making the most of its stunning natural beauty – you can expect golden beaches, leafy palm trees and volcanic rock pools.

Costa Teguise also benefits from being extremely well connected transport wise. Arrecife Airport is a 15-minute drive away, the historic capital of Teguise only 10 minutes away by car, and attractions such as The Cuevas de Los Verdes and the Jardin de Cactus are right on your doorstep.

The windy climate makes Costa Teguise a haven for water-skiers and windsurfers, but for those looking for a chilled out vibe, there's plenty to do that doesn't involve working up some adrenaline. Lanzarote's only waterpark is situated here, as is its aquarium, home to turtles, sharks and stingrays.

For the perfect family day out, Playa Bastain has a soft-play area and a bowling alley among the sun loungers and planted gardens. For art and culture lovers, famous artist residence Fundacion Cesar Manrique is a must-see.

A perfect location

Buses and taxis run frequently - and cheaply - between the resort and the surrounding areas, so there's no excuse not to get out and explore.

Breathtaking beaches

The smaller beaches are more rustic and naturally beautiful, such as local favourite Playa Ancla, perfect for swimmers with its clear blue water. And the best part? All five beaches are linked by a promenade with shops and restaurants, so if you fancy a change of scenery, it's easy to stroll on over to the next one.
