Overview of Lanzarote, Las Palmas

An explosion of volcanic landscape, culture and architectural sophistication, holidays to Lanzarote offer a diverse set of options for an equally diverse set of travellers. Close to the north African coast, the subtropical climate brings year-round sunshine making Lanzarote the ideal spot for sunseekers. The near constant breeze makes the pleasant beaches the perfect place for water sports, baking and bathing. Outside of its natural beauty, Lanzarote is culturally rich. However, if family fun is what you’re after, there are plenty of family-friendly resorts like the Occidental Lanzarote Mar, and the island comes alive at night.

Things to do in Costa Teguise, Lanzarote

The Costa Teguise area, in which the Occidental Lanzarote Mar is located, is famed for its stretches of golden beaches, water sports and trendy bars and restaurants but there are many other options for couples and families to enjoy. The Aquapark is always a splash, as is a visit to the underwater tunnel Aquarium that is home to hundreds of species of marine life. You can get a real sense of the landscape when exploring dozens of 18th-century volcano formations at the Timanfaya National Park or acquaint yourself with one of Lanzarote’s most infamous figures, the artist and architect, César Manrique. There are 200km of cycle routes for the outdoorsy thrillseekers among you and for those who love a bit of history, the Castillo de San Jose is an absolute must-see.

Resort Summary

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.
