Costa Teguise Travel Guide

Costa Teguise

A green-and-white complex of apartments and several large hotels, Costa Teguise is a typical ’80s resort that some would say is past its heyday, although it still draws thousands of visitors every year. King Juan Carlos used to own a villa here, near the Meliá Salinas hotel. Teguise proper (also known as La Villa de Teguise or, colloquially, "La Villa"), on the other hand, is situated 15 km (9 miles) inland from the coastal enclave and is another experience entirely: it is Lanzarote's historic capital and the oldest settlement in the archipelago, dating to 1402. Many of local visionary artist César Manrique's architectural masterpieces are situated withing easy driving distance of Teguise.
