Costa Teguise is a coastal town in the Municipality of Teguise on the island of Lanzarote . Part of the Canary Islands of Spain. It was built intentionally to accommodate tourism, and prior to building commencing the streets were planned, constructed, and serviced in advance. Then started to take shape in the 1970’s. It was initially developed as an up market alternative to Puerto del Carmen. And became very popular with German and Scandinavian tourists during the 1980’s. Anchored by the 5 star Hotel Gran Melia Salinas and the Pueblo Marinero.
The town has four main beaches, all of which are natural: Playa de los Charcos, Playa de las Cucharas, Playa del Jablillo and Playa Bastián. Plus Costa Teguise is home to the first of Lanzarote’s two Golf Coarse’s.
Costa Teguise is the least sheltered of Lanzarote’s main resorts as well as the most northerly. As a result, during the winter months, it can be cooler, cloudier and windier here than in resort rivals to the south. Which in part explains why it has fallen behind Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca to become Lanzarote’s third most popular resort. Residents and frequent visitors of Costa Teguise have nicknamed the town “Breezy Teguise”.
Some say that the resort lacks an organic, central heart. And it’s true that it doesn’t boast anything as atmospheric as say the Old Town Harbor area in Puerto del Carmen. However there is still plenty of life in and around Playa Cucharas, the main beach .And the Playa Bastian area, which is home to most of the best restaurants in the resort.
The beaches in Costa Teguise, all comprised of golden sand. The main ones, such as Playa Cucharas and Playa Bastian offer good facilities, such as WC and sun loungers . Whilst others such as Playa Ancla are a little more all natural.
