Costa Teguise, located in the municipality of Teguise on the island of Lanzarote, is a purpose-built coastal town specifically designed to serve tourism. Before construction began, careful planning and preparation of the street layout and infrastructure was carried out.
The city has four main natural beaches: Playa de los Charcos, Playa de las Cucharas, Playa del Hubillo and Playa Bastian.
Playa de las Cucharas – Where the webcam is located overlooking the beach and the pedestrian path.
In the early stages of development in 1970, Explosivos Río Tinto, under the leadership of Mr. Leopoldo Calvo-Sotelo (later President of the Government), acquired a vast area of 12 million square meters intended for a luxury tourist urbanization. Called the Urbanization of the Costa de Teguise, this ambitious project was envisioned as a central tourist hub for the island.
The pioneering development began with the opening of Lanzarote’s first five-star hotel, Gran Meliá Salinas, designed by architect Fernando Higueras in collaboration with local artist Cesar Manrique. Many other 4 and 5 star hotels were subsequently added to the area.
