Who Is Costa Teguise Popular With
A Costa Teguise holiday is popular with those looking for a relaxing break by the sea. It is ideal for families, sun lovers, water sport enthusiasts and couples of all ages. It is particularly popular with wind surfers because of the constant breeze across the bay.

Costa Teguise is a year round holiday destination having pleasantly hot summers and warm winters. Winter holidays are very popular with those wishing to escape the dark and dreary days of our British winter.
Costa Teguise - The Place
Costa Teguise, a purpose built resort lying centrally on the eastern coast, is well positioned for exploring the island. It has wonderful beaches of fine golden sand which, since they face east, are perfect for sunbathing. There is a constant breeze across the bay which gives ideal conditions for wind surfers who flock here in their droves. There is also wide provision of other water sports.
Although other courses are nearing completion, Teguise Golf Course is at present the only course on the island. It is two kilometres from the town centre.
Costa Teguise also has the only water park on Lanzarote.
Costa Teguise is only ten minutes drive from the historic capital which is a sleepy little place, unless your visit coincides with the very popular Sunday market. The market has hundreds of inviting stalls and there are many street entertainers.
Lanzarote is an island of outstanding natural beauty with wild extremes of landscape. An excursion to the National Park of Timanfaya with its huge volcanic craters and stark lunar landscape should not be missed. As the coach winds its way around this alien landscape on a twisting tarmac road you will be overawed by the huge craters and lava formations. At the restaurant in the National Park your food can be cooked on a grill using heat from deep within the volcano.
Another very popular attraction are Los Verdes caves in the north of the island, with their massive stalactites and stalagmites, underground lake and illuminated caverns.
Costa Teguise Nightlife
Although the nightlife in Costa Teguise is fairly lively it is certainly not raucous. Restaurants, bars and pubs all open late but there are no all night venues. Much of the entertainment is hotel based.
One of the attractions of shopping in the Canary Islands is that goods are virtually tax free. Costa Teguise has very many shops selling all manner of goods. There are a number of smart boutiques as well as many specialist, gift and souvenir shops. The Sunday market in Teguise attracts many hundreds of visitors every week, all looking for a holiday bargain amongst its hundreds of stalls. Bartering is an essential part of the transaction.
Costa Teguise Eating
The wide variety of bars, cafes, and restaurants provide for most tastes. There are a number of English and Irish establishments serving ‘pub grub’ for those with a less adventurous palate.
Those who like to feast like a king should try ‘Meson la Jordana’ where the Spanish King is said to eat when he visits the island. An excellent two course meal costs roughly sixty euros including wine, (very reasonable when you are rubbing shoulders with royalty).
