Costa Teguise holidays are sketched with families in mind. And the artist holding the pencil's a fan of big beaches, seafront restaurants and activity-crammed to-do lists.

Classic recipe

If the classic holiday set-up ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s the mantra in Costa Teguise, where getaways draw on tried-and-tested ingredients. The little and large sandy beaches are popular with families, and there are enough bars and restaurants to bowl up somewhere new every night. The hotels buddy up to the beach, too, so it’s impossible to be more than a short stroll from the action.

Famous five

Bronzing’s not a one-beach affair in Costa Teguise, which has a five-strong selection box of options. Palm trees stand like spectators behind Playa Bastian beach – it’s a popular pick, as segments of the shoreline are sheltered from the Atlantic breeze. Playa Cucharas is one of the island of Lanzarote’s most picturesque portions of the soft stuff, while peaceful Playa Jablillo is unburdened by any mod cons.

Easy-to-fill days

This corner of the Canary Islands is far from a one-trick pony – the activity list is testament to that. Shopping keenos head to the market at Pueblo Marinero for a nose around the stalls. For kid-centric fodder, the nearby waterpark grabs the reins. Keep heading inland, and the silhouette of Mount Tahiche gets larger on the horizon. There are a bunch of golf greens at its base, and the views while you play are off the chain.
