Cool Canarian charm
Full of Canarian style, Costa Teguise’s character comes from its small-town charm. Its piece of the coast means you get a choice of beaches – each as sandy and kitted-out as the last, with plenty of sunloungers and beachfront cafés and snack bars.
The beaches are linked by a breezy waterfront promenade that runs the length of the resort, and is the number-one spot for restaurants, shops and bars. Windsurfing is Costa Teguise’s favourite sport, so the coast is packed with schools – try Cucharas Beach, where in summer qualifiers complete for the PWA Windsurfing World Championship.
Costa Teguise also boasts Lanzarote’s first golf course, a championship 18-hole course set in the island’s signature volcanic landscape.
Flight time from the UK to Lanzarote is around 4 hours 15 minutes.
Transfer time from Arrecife airport to Costa Teguise is approximately 20 minutes.
Summers in Lanzarote are warm and dry, rarely falling below 25°C. A reliable beach destination all year round, the Canaries boast some the warmest winters around (temperatures tend to stick to the late teens), with lovely mild springs and autumns.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.
Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
