Great for family breaks and romantic getaways alike, Costa Teguise holidays could be the dream ticket…
Costa Teguise is located on the northeast coast of the Canary Island of Lanzarote. Known for year-round sunshine and great family attractions, Lanzarote is popular with visitors throughout the year. Many of those tourists head to Costa Teguise, one of the island’s three major resorts.
Costa Teguise has a strong family feel and a lively - but not wild - nightlife scene. Life by day whirls around the resort’s brilliant beaches. Soft strips of golden sand can be found between rocky outcrops in horseshoe shaped bays that offer some protection from the famous Canarian winds. Handily, the beaches of Costa Teguise are also linked by a palm-lined promenade packed with cafes, restaurants and friendly bars.
Elsewhere in the resort, young swimmers chuckle with delight at the Aquapark, where older children (and adventurous adults) scream their way down water slides. There are play parks and an aquarium for little ones in Costa Teguise too, while teens might like to try their hand at surfing or windsurfing when the conditions are right. A golf course can also be found on the outskirts of the resort.
Book car hire in Lanzarote and a world of sightseeing possibilities are revealed when you put Costa Teguise in the rear-view mirror. The terrain of this volcanic island ranges from barren and rocky in the south, home to Timanfaya National Park, to lush and mountainous in the north. Driving in Lanzarote is straightforward and holiday albums quickly fill with pictures of island adventures when you hit the open road.
Self-catering holidays are popular in Costa Teguise, as are packages with breakfast or two meals a day included. If you are looking to go all-inclusive, Costa Teguise also has a handful of excellent hotels that cater for guests around the clock.

Fly south from the UK for about four hours (taking a slight right turn) and you’ll end up in the warm embrace of Spain’s Canary Islands, which are off the west coast of Africa and surrounded by Atlantic waters.
Costa Teguise is a pleasure to visit at any time, though winter visitors are likely to experience some overcast days and a bit of rain. The good news, however, is that storms generally pass quickly this close to the equator, and sunny skies soon replace grey clouds. Average daytime temperatures also go no lower than 17C, even in the depths of winter.
Spring and autumn are terrific times to visit, with average daytime temperatures of between 20-25C and lighter winds.
Summer is hot and windy in Costa Teguise; that breeze really does take off the intensity of the heat when the mercury pushes beyond 30C though, for which many visitors are very grateful.
March to the laidback Lanzarote beat when you attend any of these events in and around Costa Teguise…
Carnaval; February/March: The Canary Islands take their pre-Lent carnivals very seriously. The capital of Lanzarote, Arrecife, puts on the best show (get there in just 10 minutes by road from Costa Teguise), but each town on the island has its own unique take on the event. Grab a fancy dress outfit at a local store and join the crowds for a lively procession through the resort.
European Freestyle Pro Tour; July: Harnessing the strong summer winds off the shore, competitors show off their windsurfing talents at this exciting event in Costa Teguise.
Teguise Market; weekly: The town of Teguise, not to be confused with Costa Teguise, is 20 minutes inland from the resort. It’s a welcoming and traditional town that is home to a clutch of excellent restaurants. Every Sunday, however, the streets are taken over by stallholders and tourists for this major weekly market. From handbags and local art to island cheeses and wines, you can pick up a bagful of bargains while watching folk dancing and tapping your feet to street music.
There is much to see and do both in Costa Teguise and around the island of Lanzarote. Here are a few ideas…
Kids and teens: Playa las Cucharas is a wide sweep of sand at the centre of Costa Teguise and the perfect place to have a go at windsurfing. If you are a first-timer, you can book lessons with the resort’s instructors, who will soon have you luffing and lifting.
Grown-up families: Hire a car and head to Timanfaya National Park. Here you can ride camels across the black, lunar-like landscape, before hopping onto a coach that lets you peek inside the craters created during past eruptions.
Nightlife: The evening scene in Costa Teguise is low-key compared to that of Puerto del Carmen down the coast. When night falls here, themed bars, family pubs and open-air restaurants provide the music and mood for the remainder of your day. You will soon find your favourite during holidays in Costa Teguise.
