Welcome to Costa Teguise
Northeast of Arrecife is Costa Teguise, which is perfectly pleasant provided you are not expecting cobbled streets and crumbling buildings. This is a purpose-built holiday resort with bustling shopping centres, family-geared beaches and watersports, plenty of mediocre (and better) bars and restaurants but, inevitably, no real soul. There’s not even an original fishing village at its heart.
The most appealing beach is Playa de las Cucharas. Those further south suffer unfortunate views of the port and industry near Arrecife. The Centro Comercial Las Cucharas shopping centre is the resort’s focal point.
