is?K4uBXxYy9JEqcK8nLkHuy_nKJ165m3YyviqePuy7t9k&height=248Earlier this year, I devoted Three weeks hopping around the Canaries. Such a truly extraordinary experience, so many excursion to be enjoyed, a lot of dazzling shores to discover, stumbling out of bed in new peaceful spot every single day. So extraordinary, nonetheless this needs a large amount of planning and organisation! This is not all arranged for you. You choose your unique quest and then arrange your personal journey! Thankfully the Canarian archipelago isn’t that enormous that people could be lost there instantly. My favourite of all was Lanzarote. It’s a charming tiny island with extraordinary people. It's their own means of living as the rest of the islands have got. You'll be able to neglect your life while you're on the island. The island of lanzarote is so distinctive distant and lonesome to live on. You may have a tremendous family holiday there with all the water activities and then tours within the island. I hoped to talk about some things which i collected along the route to help you with all the scheduling and generally being a traveller. Many are pretty simple, but when you feel as if a million miles away from home, you can not find any hotspot and you’ve got barely any money with you, minor ideas can feel like lifesavers! On The island of lanzarote the only thing you will need is sunscreen to bear the sizzling sun. The weather is mostly sunny and when it rains the life goes to a stop there. Residents go inside seal the doorway and panes and awaiting the rain to pass.
Lanzarote is known as a windy island. You are likely to earliest see it once your airplane prepares for landing. The north of the island is often more windy versus the south. If you can’t tolerate the sand in your sandals and view try to move nearer to the south. Puerto del carmen is a scorching and inviting place anytime of the year to enjoy with discos and restaurants to go out.
Playa blanca is also a special location for most of the people featuring its amazing landscape and relaxed atmosphere. It is the favorite location for the young families and folks trying to find a bit more downtempoed holiday. The island only and greatest jazz pub the Blue Note is likewise found here which tells quite a lot about the folks who visit here as well.
Costa Teguise is the most windy of them all and wind-surfers like that quite a lot. If you are not into jazz music or big parties then this is certainly your place for being on a vacation. There are accommodation, flats, pubs and eating places of any kind to pass your time after a troublesome day at the outdoor pool.
In case you are more into pubs than hiking under the blazing sun then you might call for some cash too. Accommodations usually are economical so are the food and the drinks inside pubs. Most hotels are offer meals which makes life incredibly easier if you are not into cooking your own personal meals or looking for restaurants day after day to have a mediocre meal. Keep in mind that a lot of places will not accept cards under a certain quantity so having money in Lanzarote is a life saver.

Costa Teguise - Lanzarote
Costa Teguise is Lanzarote's first tourist resort planned and constructed entirely with tourism in mind.
Here you can find the 5star Gran Melia Salinas which marks the starting of construction works in 1970.
In Spanish style the infrastructure was planned and constructed before the buildings were up which is why there is still place for Costa Teguise to grow.
It is located on the north-east side of the island 15 km / 10 miles from the Airport. A taxi is the easiest solution to get here but there are airport shuttle services to choose from too. Public transport is also available but you need to change lines in Arrecife (Línea 22 then 3 to Costa Teguise) because somehow direct public transfers don't exist.
Costa Teguise has four main beaches:
Playa de los Charcos
This is the only beach with golden sand. It is a well-known destination among windsurfers as the yearly European freestyle windsurf championship is taking place here around July. Which happens to be the windiest month in Lanzarote.
You may expect quite a lot wind here.
Playa de las Cucharas
The most popular one with white sand and the rippling sunshine on the morning waves. It's equipped with toilet which is open from 10.00-18.00. Baywatch station working showers and nice new sand coloured sunbeds and sun-umbrellas which shuns the cheap looking orange-blue compositions and blend into the harmony of the shore. It's nice to have a stroll here in the morning or the afternoon or pop in one of the bars if you aren't committed to the scorching sun during the day.
Playa del Jablillo
The gem of the village. This is the best for families with small children. The artificial reef breaks almost all the waves and leaves us with an almost lake like pond. One side of the shore has lovely white sand with black rocks to fence yourself from the wind. The opposite side looks just as tempting but it has a natural rocky Baby-Stroller defence system.
It's worth to mention that swimmers, snorkelers take great delight here too and if you are into diving there is a diving centre right next to the beach.
Playa Bastián
This beach isn't really that much about sea as rather gathering together and have fun. There is a rather small waterfront and mixture of white sand and small grained black volcanic rock on the shore. This is a great place if you don't like when the sand is all over you for weeks.
The main strength is right behind the shore where there are semi-circle walled slots. Here people of all age and race host picnics with barbecue and beer under the palm trees. It's a lovely atmosphere to celebrate ones birthday there.
Things to do in Costa Teguise
It's as incredible as it sounds but there is place to play golf on the island. As Costa Teguise was purposely built to be a premium resort it couldn't lack the premium features. Costa Teguise golf club was the only green on the island for 30 years. There is more now. It isn't bad from an island without actual fresh water resources, is it?
Costa Teguise Water Park
If you are bored of the sea or afraid of all the living creatures swarming around while you are swimming then head to the Aquapark It isn't as cheap as sweating on the beach but it is definitely more exciting than that. You can check out the price if the site works and find out about ongoing deals, too. It's open from 10.00 to 18.00 and there is free Wi-Fi. Here is a nice YouTube video about it: Costa Teguise Waterpark
There is an indoor paintball field inside the Aquapark for up to 10 people. Sorry but it's only available if you are over 14 years old.
Adventure Park
Are you longing to see the fauna of the deep blue but aren't really into diving or submarining? There is a small but lovely aquarium here where you can stop by and stare at the noble ray as long as you wish. You may find some huge vicious looking turtles there as well. It's quite pricey, though. I guess the sharks need a lot to eat.
Market on the main square
You have just arrived at the hotel and your first thought is "Hey, where can I get some nice presents for the unlucky ones stuck back home?"
On Wednesday 18.00 - 22.00 there is a charming little craftsman market at Pueblo Marinero the main square of the village. You can get really nice unique jewellery, bars of soap and presents here.
On Friday 17.00 - 22.00 there is general market packed with clothes, fake designer bags and some nice things. It's the small version of the great Sunday Teguise market.
Farmers Market is held every Tuesday morning from 9 to 14.00 here with delicious cheese and typical Canarian food. I would steer you away of the vegetables though if you are not familiar with the vendors. Some aren't really selling goods from the island but just goods you can get in the shops, generally cheaper.
Jogging on the island is more challenging than in the gym due to the landscape and the wind but it is also more pleasing. Sometimes unknown people cheer for you on the street wholeheartedly. It's a really nice experience.
There are numerous bike renting stations in the village if you are up to the challenging landscape. Bikers really love the ride here.
Swimming is another obvious activity but be aware of the tide if you are heading to the sea. If it seems easy to swim out it will be quite though to get back to the shore. The safest place is to enjoy the water is Playa de Jablillo.
Well. Lanzarote is not a shopping paradise and Costa Teguise is not the roundest pearl on it. You can find shops here but if you are into shopping you may check out Biosfera in Puerto Del Carmen There is Deiland in Playa Honda too but I would not waste words on it neither should you, your time except if you have plenty.
Costa Teguise Weather
Under the umbrella of Lanzarote's climate Costa Teguise is sunny and windy. Certain times it's windier, like in July but otherwise wind lull is like Scottish summer. Clouds aren't live long either but there are considerably more shady days here than in Puerto Del Carmen.
GET SUNSCREEN when the sun peeps out of the morning clouds. Around 10am on the beach it's already scorching hot. You get burned badly before you get your lunch. Apply sunscreen or earn your well deserved name: guiri (kihrih).
