Las Cucharas Beach
Relax by the sea at Las Cucharas Beach, a favorite among vacationers and professional windsurfers alike. This Lanzarote shoreline makes up one of the main attractions of Costa Teguise, a tourist area with extravagant resorts and health spas. Swim in the blue-green waters, take windsurfing lessons or simply enjoy the beach's soothing atmosphere.
The beach itself is pristine, friendly to families and surrounded by enchanting views. Bring a towel and enhance your tan during lazy mornings. Rent hammocks, sunshades and deck-chairs along the promenade.
Visit early to secure a prime spot on the sands. Although the beach is 2,100 feet (640 meters) long and offers lots of space, summer crowds tend to fill up the best spots very quickly.
The temperate waters are popular with swimmers and divers. On windy days, look for windsurfers skimming the water's surface or lifting with the air currents out to sea. These ideal conditions allow Las Cucharas Beach to host international windsurfing competitions every year. If you’re adventurous, learn this thrilling skill at local windsurfing schools, which offer hands-on training and guidance.
After a swim, walk the beachfront promenade and admire an architectural garden. The layout, which features tropical palms and picturesque patches of flowers, embodies a motif common in Lanzarote: creating art with nature.
Costa Teguise offers a number of relaxation or entertainment attractions within walking distance of the beach. Pamper yourself at a health spa or work on your swing at the local golf course. Slip and slide at the Costa Teguise water park or enjoy the quiet coastline of Jablilo Beach.
Be sure to visit Pueblo Marinero Fishing Village, a cluster of intriguing buildings. Go to the Friday night market. In the evenings, sit at a fine dining restaurant along the Las Cucharas promenade and enjoy the seaside views.
Find Las Cucharas Beach and Costa Teguise on the eastern coast of Lanzarote, just a 15-minute drive from the island's international airport. The beach is accessible to wheelchairs.
