Places of interest
Costa Teguise is one of the most in-demand destinations in Lanzarote, because both in the town and in the surrounding area, there are many enchanting places that make Lanzarote a special island.
Very close to the town, you can find the best conserved historical centre in Lanzarote, Villa de Teguise, which was built in the 15th Century on an ancient settlement populated by the island’s pre-Hispanic inhabitants. A little closer, just 12 kilometres away, you’ll find the curious Cactus Garden (Jardín de Cactus), an excellent botanical garden exclusively containing cacti. The garden benefits from Lanzarote’s arid climate to give a home to cacti from all over the world.
In Costa Teguise itself, you can find places like Aquapark, the best water park on the island; Pueblo Marinerero, an ideal spot for a good time, and one of the best golf courses on the island.
Costa Teguise’s beaches are excellent, and there is something for everyone. The most popular is the Las Cucharas Beach (playa de las Cucharas), which is next to a promenade, with golden sands and plenty of amenities.
The 400 meters of golden sands of Bastián Beach (playa Bastián), make it the second largest beach in the town and, together with El Jablillo, is another of the beaches to consider.
Los Charcos is the smallest beach in the area – just 150 metres long – and has golden sands and few visitors. It is also worth mentioning El Ancla Beach (playa de El Ancla), which is small but welcoming, and typically visited by the island’s residents.
There is an immense selection of sport on offer – tennis, pádel, biking…but with it being a coastal area, the highlights are windsurfing, kitesurfing, diving etc.
In terms of its gastronomical offer, it’s as diverse as it is exquisite. You’ll find some of Lanzarote’s best restaurants here, as well as magnificent tapas bars through the town.
While maintaining its calm nature, in the evenings in Costa Teguise there is a good variety of pubs, clubs, bars and venues with live music to keep the night alive.
The epicentre of the town’s nightlife is known as Pueblo Marinero – an area where there’s no shortage of places to have a magical night in Costa Teguise.
