Playa del Jablillo in Costa Teguise

Costa Teguise is a coastal town in the Municipality of Teguise on the island of Lanzarote (in the Canary Islands of Spain). It was built intentionally to accommodate tourism, and prior to building commencing the streets were planned, constructed, and serviced in advance.

The town has four main beaches, all of which are natural: Playa de los Charcos, Playa de las Cucharas, Playa del Jablillo and Playa Bastián.

To date the planners' goals have been over-enthusiastic, as the streets and street lighting created in the late 1980s still have massive areas where no hotels or housing have yet been built.

The nightlife is very exciting here. Various pubs and discos make the nights more and more exciting. One can experience the local Spanish cuisine. There are a large number of restaurants, ranging from British-style pubs to traditional Spanish tapas bars.

There are many hotels to choose from in this region but it can get a bit crowded during peak tourist season so it is sensible to make bookings well in advance. The place is an ideal location for short holidays with friends and family. The beautiful weather with cool sea breeze helps to refresh the mind of the individual.

Costa Teguise weather remains moderate throughout the whole year.The beaches here are windier as compared to the other beach side resorts. This accounts for the trouble experienced by most wind surfers and other water sports enthusiasts. However weather on Lanzarote islands is a boon in the summer months. The temperature goes down to 20 degrees in the winter months while they rise up to 28°C in the summer months. Most families tend to visit Costa Teguise in the winter season as the winds are calmer around this time of the year. It would be safe for any visitor visiting to expect a lot of sunshine hence carry the most appropriate skin lotion.

Special Events[edit]

Costa Teguise has been responsible for a number of notable and recognisable celebrities and well known individuals in the entertainment world. Examples include the likes of Kerry Katona, Peter Andre and Mr. Blobby.

Schools[edit]

Costa Teguise has one primary and secondary school, originally called Colegio Internacional de Lanzarote. Currently named Colegio Arenas Internacional, this school was founded in the mid eighties by a group of parents, in an attempt to create a better schooling center than the ones available in the island at the time.
