On the scenic Atlantic shores of eastern Lanzarote is Costa Teguise, a popular resort with easy access to the island's international airport, just 15km away. Compared to nearby Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise nightlife is more laid-back and low key, which is why this resort is so popular with people seeking a quieter atmosphere for their Lanzarote holiday. Thanks to its warm climate, Costa Teguise is a popular holiday destination all year round, although it's a good idea to bring some extra jumpers in the winter and early spring, when the nights can be quite cool. Fortunately, like the rest of Lanzarote, this resort enjoys very high sunshine hours, even in the winter, and has very little rainfall.
Clubs and bars in Costa TeguiseThe main nightlife in Costa Teguise is around Avenida de las Islas Canarias and between Calla las Olas and Calla le Goleta, where you'll find some of Lanzarote's best cocktail bars. Costa Teguise nightlife is much more limited than the likes of Puerto del Carmen or Playa Blanca, which appeal more to clubbers and groups of friends. Many bars and restaurants here also play live music such as jazz, although it's not nearly as frantic as Lanzarote's bigger resorts. This means the atmosphere in Puerto del Carmen is more family oriented, so it will appeal to couples with young children. If you're staying at an all inclusive hotel, you may benefit from a nightly entertainment programme with live music, shows or comedy as part of your all inclusive package.
Nightlife further afieldIf you're looking for a more clubbing themed atmosphere than Costa Teguise nightlife, head to Puerto del Carmen, about 25 minutes away by taxi, where you'll find some of the best clubs in the Canary Islands. This energetic resort has a wide choice of venues around Avenida de las Playas, ranging from cocktail bars to dance clubs, where you can party well into the early hours. Fancy something a little more authentic? Arrecife is a great choice for bars where you can mingle with the locals and listen to some live music.
Nightlife tipsWhen you're planning a big night out, bear in mind that clubs in Lanzarote don't normally open until 11pm, and dance floors don't often get busy until around midnight. So, if you're keen to make the most of your holiday and dance all night, consider taking an afternoon nap, as clubs here don't usually close until 6am.
TaxisTaxis operate throughout the night from Costa Teguise nightlife venues, although prices will be higher than what you'd pay during the day. Always agree your fare in advance, especially if you're booking a taxi from Puerto del Carmen to Costa Teguise, or from further afield. Make sure you have enough Euros with you beforehand, too.
