Las Cucharas Beaches

It is a small beach of little more than half a kilometre but it has all the necessary services for tourists and the comfort of bathers.

It is one of the favourites of surfing enthusiasts, who come here in search of good waves to feel the adrenaline on the board. It has a secluded area for the practice of water sports such as windsurfing. There are many companies that provide equipment rental services and also offer specialised trainers to guide you.

If you visit during the month of June you will enjoy the PWA Costa Teguise Windsurfing World Championship where you will see the best surfers on stage competing for the prize for the best on the board.

Puddles Beach

It is next to Las Cucharas but it is different because of its white sands. It has all the services for the enjoyment of bathers and has the perfect conditions for surfing.

Jabillo Beach

This is a very quiet beach with the best conditions for snorkelling. It is protected by breakwaters and due to the calmness it is the safest beach to go with children and enjoy without worries.

Bastian Beach

It is a black sand beach typical of the volcanic landscape of the island. It is very quiet and does not receive many visitors but it has all the services you need such as toilets, showers and parking.

Lanzarote Surf (2)

Costa Teguise has the best wind and swell conditions for surfing and riding the waves. If you want to learn or you are still a beginner go to the Windsurfing Club Las Cucharas, they have many activities and offer rental of the necessary equipment.

In Costa Teguise you can practice:

  • Windsurfing
  • Snorkelling
  • Sea kayaking
  • Stand up paddle surfing
  • Bodyboarding


Enjoy the hidden trails of Corona Mountain, a large crater surrounded by magnificent vegetation that you can climb and get the best views of the island. The ascent takes about an hour and is of medium level, so it is suitable for most people. Put on your hiking boots and get ready to climb over a rocky environment caused by volcanic action. When you reach the top you will feel triumphant and you will have the magnificence of the Atlantic Ocean before your eyes.

Places to visit

In addition to enjoying the beach and sports in Costa Teguise, we recommend you visit the following attractions in the town with high tourist demand:

Aquarium Lanzarote

A must if you want to see sharks. Located in the centre of the coast of Teguise, it is a small place but inside you will see all kinds of marine species dancing and waiting for visitors to do some funny somersaults. There are also some interactive aquariums where you can get in touch with some of the species.

One of the attractions worth mentioning is the trash aquarium, a recreation in which you will see the current state of many beaches as a result of the irresponsibility of its visitors. This attraction is designed to touch people’s conscience and to try to stop the pollution of our natural spaces. These, in turn, are home to thousands of defenceless and vulnerable species.

Aquapark Costa Teguise

If you continue towards town you will come to the aquapark, a super fun place especially for the little ones.

The park is located west of Las Cucharas beach. It has slides and fabulous pools to have a lot of fun. It also has tracks for racing and having the time of your life. There is something for everyone, from giant spiral slides for the brave ones to small ball pools for the little ones.

There is also a 10D cinema with sensory elements that will make you feel part of the movie. Enjoy the delicious dishes that you will find in the restaurant, which offers a wide variety of Canarian and international cuisine.

Curiosities of Costa Teguise

Locals still refer to this enclave as Rio Tinto, because this was the name of the first company that built the first tourist complex in the area, back in the 1960s.

Before it became a beautiful resort, it was a large field. It was made up of extensive pasture regions dedicated to cattle farming. There were also wheat and barley fields and some remains of aboriginal pottery were found on the land.

I hired the atlanca boat as a surprise for my husbands 40th birthday and it was honestly the best day and lots of fun. Easy to book, when we arrived Patrick did the paperwork and explained everything then Fran gave us all the safety information on how to ride the boat. Everything was provided and additional special touches were much appreciated. They were both great, really friendly and put us at ease. We had 3 hours booked and we got the full time, everything excellent. Highly recommended. Thank you

Alquilamos una excursión para ver cetáceos y dar un paseo de 3h. En general la experiencia estuvo bien. Toda la gestión de reserva fue fácil y el trato con Bananapalmbay fue un gusto.
Al llegar al barco tuvimos alguna confusión con lo acordado, pero tras comunicarse la empresa del barco con Bananapalmbay se solucionó y pudimos disfrutar del viaje. Además vimos ballenas piloto.
