Purpose-built with affordable fun in mind
The budget-friendly shores of Costa Teguise are just four hours and 20 minutes away, so be ready to enjoy the watersports opportunities and delicious cuisine of this warm resort in no time at all.
Built especially to welcome tourists to sunny Lanzarote in the 1970s, Costa Teguise is everything you could want from a holiday destination and more. Here, you’ve got beaches, a waterfront promenade, watersports and local culture that doesn’t go to sleep just because the sun sets.
Cheap things to do around Costa Teguise
Costa Teguise might have been built to royal standards – King Carlos of Spain still has a pad here – but its status as the third most popular holiday destination on Lanzarote means it’s got the amenities to satisfy all budget shades.
Cheap holidays to Costa Teguise start at the beaches, of which there are five in total.
Playa Cucharas and Playa Bastain are the biggest, but all five sets of shores are connected by a promenade, which means getting between them couldn’t be easier. This is also where you can soak up maximum views, grab a cool drink and head out for a stroll in the Spanish sunshine.
This coast of Lanzarote is also known for its watersports – Costa Teguise is prone to windy conditions, so you can take up windsurfing and glide across the waves, or head underneath them with snorkelling gear to see the range of underwater life this area is also known for.
Back on land, the Pueblo Marinero is Costa Teguise’s vibrant square, lined with restaurants and bars. Even if you don’t fancy eating out, you can still wander past the stalls and drink in the live music and electric atmosphere.
How to get a great Costa Teguise holiday deal
In order to get the best holiday deals, you’ll want to hold off on booking until, at most, eight weeks before your intended departure date.
Because Costa Teguise is a purpose-built resort, you’re likely to find a lot of hotels with solid All Inclusive offerings – take advantage of these and you’ll be set for food. And if you want to splurge here and there, Pueblo Marinero and the restaurants at the waterfront promenade are at your service.
We love Costa Teguise as much as the next holidaymaker, but if you’re still not quite sure it’s the spot for your next cheap holiday, we’re here to help with a few other Lanzarote suggestions. Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca are the big hitters for holidays, with the former offering the most nightlife and the latter giving access to the island’s beautiful southerm landscapes. Or opt for quiet Playa de Los Pocillos, still near enough to Puerto del Carmen for things to do.
And after all that, if Costa Teguise still has your name on it, take a peek at our travel guide for more information on this sun-drenched stunner. In the meantime, here are our top hotels for a cheap holiday to this patch of Lanzarote.
