Costa Teguise - Lanzarote - Canary Islands Hotels

Mini guide to Costa Teguise - Lanzarote - Canary Islands


Considered to be one of the most beautiful villages in the Canary Islands, Teguise, the capital of Lanzarote, is both historically rich and culturally proud. Situated 10kms from the coast, the town has a brilliantly diverse past, which is reflected in the local art and architecture. Teguise has been called 'a living museum' by some.

Walking through the town, you'll find streets embellished with palaces, convents and squares, preserving the colourful past of the town. Each Sunday, the squares and streets come alive with local craftsmen plying their trades; the cafés and restaurants throughout the town are usually pretty busy.

Visit the 'diabletes' of Teguise, which are a defining example of the town's folk tradition. Diabletes are figures of a little devil, incarnated as a male goat, and are a symbol of virility and fecundity. They are the result of late 15th century beliefs, a mixture of aboriginal and Castillian elements connected to witchcraft which were brought by the first Moors and slaves to arrive here.

The beaches in Costa Teguise, 16kms away, are some of the best in Lanzarote. The pick of the beaches here would probably be Famara, 1,500m of pristine sand with a fabulous panoramic backdrop of the mountains. Surfers maintain that the area is perfect for the sport, although the winds can make the water somewhat pernicious.

Situated in the municipality of Tinajo, adjacent to Teguise, is the resort of La Santa. The town is a well-preserved fishing village and also a major holiday sports centre and features some outstanding beaches. Scuba diving, among other water activities, is on offer.

Lanzarote is 200kms northeast of Gran Canaria, and you can fly there from many international cities and from the other islands in the archipelago. Ferries make regular connections with nearby Fuerteventura, and less regularly with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
