Costa Teguise travel guide
Costa Teguise is a coastal town located in the east of Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands. The town is known for its beautiful beaches, excellent weather, and rich history. This town inherits its name from ‘Costa’ meaning ‘Coast’, and ‘Teguise’ which is the municipality in which the town is in. Costa Teguise itself was developed in the 1970s as part of a plan to boost tourism on the island. The area was chosen for its natural beauty, and a number of hotels, restaurants, and other tourist facilities were built in and around the town. Today, Costa Teguise is a popular tourist destination, known for its excellent beaches, water sports, and vibrant nightlife. Visitors can enjoy a wide range of activities, from windsurfing and kiteboarding to hiking and cycling.
If you are in Costa Teguise, we highly recommend a visit to Pueblo Marinero, a charming square composed of traditional Canary buildings designed by the artist César Manrique. In addition to its picturesque architecture, Pueblo Marinero offers a range of dining, drinking, and shopping options, including a Friday evening market starting at 19.00.
Which are the best beaches?
Costa Teguise is known for its beautiful beaches, with crystal-clear waters and soft sand. Here are the beaches we recommend:
Playa Las Cucharas: This is the main beach in Costa Teguise and is popular with both locals and tourists. The beach has soft, golden sand and calm waters, making it ideal for swimming and sunbathing. There are also plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. This is the perfect beach if you wish to try Windsurfing, Kitesurfing or the new and upcoming Hydrofoiling. We have three lovely accommodations located very close by to Playa Las Cucharas: Sea Breeze, Oceanview Penthouse, and Beach House
Playa Bastian: Located to the south of Playa Las Cucharas, Playa Bastian is a quieter beach with a more relaxed atmosphere. The beach has soft sand and clear waters, and there are plenty of amenities nearby, including restaurants and a playground.
Playa del Jablillo: This small, secluded beach is located to the north of Playa Las Cucharas and is perfect for those who want to get away from the crowds. The beach has white sand and turquoise waters, and there are a few bars and restaurants nearby.
Playa de los Charcos: This beach is located in a natural cove and is known for its calm waters, making it perfect for swimming and snorkeling. The beach has soft sand and is surrounded by rocky cliffs, giving it a secluded feel.
Our first recommendation is La Bohemia. This is a cozy, family-run restaurant located in the heart of Costa Teguise. The menu features a mix of Spanish/South American and international cuisine, with plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options available. Booking is recommended as it is highly recommended it tends to be busy.
Our next choice is Sebe. This is a modern eatery that focuses on using fresh, local ingredients to create a range of Mediterranean and international dishes. The menu is diverse and includes seafood, meat, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. The dishes at Sebe are known for their high-quality and imaginative presentations. Many of the dishes feature local ingredients and flavors, such as the grilled octopus with paprika or the Canarian-style fish.
Our final recommendation is El Navarro. This restaurant is located on the outskirts of Costa Teguise and is known for its delicious seafood and stunning views. The restaurant has a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea and offers a menu of fresh fish and seafood dishes.
