How to spend a day in Costa Teguise
Sun, sea and sand – the three boxes everyone wants to tick off their holiday checklist, so it’s no surprise that Costa Teguise is one of Lanzarote’s top destinations to do just that. Although a relatively small resort, Costa Teguise certainly doesn’t hold back on its attractions, restaurants and beaches.
Of course, this means that most will holiday in Costa Teguise for at least a week so it makes sense to spread the best bits over a few days. But if you just can’t wait to get stuck in and experience it all, or perhaps you’re just passing through, we’ve created this handy guide to a day in Costa Teguise. From food to fun, we’ve got you covered for 24 hours of holiday bliss!
Visit a Costa Teguise café for breakfast
There’s no better way to kick off the day than with a hearty breakfast to fuel up for a busy day of activities. Whether you’re in search of local fare or the classics from closer to home, Costa Teguise’s restaurants won’t disappoint. There are plenty of international spots like Erik’s or Beach Bar where you can enjoy a good English breakfast and a cup of tea. If you’re more of a cakes and crepes kind of person, then Helga’s, and Damien serve up cakes, pastries and crepes that are not to be missed!
You’ll find each of these restaurants located around the cove of Playa de las Cucharas – perfect for heading straight for the waves once you’re finished!
Play on the Playa de las Cucharas
As the main stretch of beach in Costa Teguise, Playa de las Cucharas has a lot of expectation resting on its shoulders. Luckily, this is a beach that doesn’t disappoint with its powder-soft sandy bay that’s met with beautiful blue shores so clear you can see your toes at the bottom. With plenty of sun loungers and fantastic waves for water sports, a few hours on Playa de las Cucharas is a great way to make the most of Lanzarote’s glorious weather.
If a few hours of sunbathing aren’t quite cutting it, then water sports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing are popular on Costa Teguise beaches. Or if you’d rather be beneath the waves, the Aquatis Diving Center is highly recommended for both first time and experienced divers to witness Lanzarote’s aquatic life close up.
Seek out the Lanzarote Aquarium
If you’d rather discover the island’s sea life on dry land, then you needn’t worry as Lanzarote Aquarium is just a ten-minute walk from the beach. As the largest aquarium in Costa Teguise and in fact the whole of the Canary Islands, there’s a lot to be enjoyed here. From tropical fish to sharks and turtles, plus a hands-on area for holding species such as starfish and sea cucumbers, Costa Teguise’s aquarium is a fantastic excuse to get stuck in and enjoy the best of the coast all in one place.
Splash the cash at the shopping Centre Las Cucharas
Once you’ve seen all the aquarium has to offer, head back along Calle las Acacias and in about 5 minutes you’ll have reached Shopping Centre Las Cucharas. Here you’ll find a small number of local shops selling souvenirs and goods – but it’s best to give the electrical shops a miss as these can be on the pricey side. There’s also a selection of local restaurants and bars here that welcome you to sit back, sip a glass of sangria and enjoy a bite to eat if you’re feeling peckish after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping in Costa Teguise.
Unwind with a drink at Pueblo Marinero
Alternatively, while the shopping area is popular and the seafront restaurants and bars serve up a range of delicious cuisines, you’ll find many holidaymakers head towards Pueblo Marinero. This is a wonderfully unspoilt plaza of some of the best restaurants in Costa Teguise serving freshly cooked tapas and seafood, plus some international favourites too. There’s also often a live band playing well into the night, providing fantastic entertainment if you stay for a cocktail or two. On Wednesday and Friday evenings, Pueblo Marinero plays host to a small craft market selling handmade goods which make for charming souvenirs to take home with you.
