With a nice quick airport transfer (only 12 km from the airport), the man-made resort of Costa Teguise offers a slightly slower pace than Puerto del Carmen, but is by no means sleepy. Popular with adventurous sporty types who utilise the fact that the resort is windy for their kite and windsurfing.
Plenty of shops are on hand for your souvenir purchases, and foodies will enjoy sampling the many fish restaurants overlooking the sea.
