The popular, purpose-built resort of Costa Teguise has plenty to keep you occupied. If you want to experience the volcanic landscape, use the local cycling routes, which lead to a house created out of lava bubbles and a grand 15th century castle.
On the far south-western tip lies Playa Blanca, lined by seven bronzed beaches and with fascinating routes to wow you! That includes one that only reaches 250m above sea level, and takes in a fluorescent green lake and rocky coastal cliffs.
You can still keep active when you’re not cycling with a hike into the Tramuntana National Park. Its otherworldly scenes look like they’ve been lifted from the moon, and you could even have a meal cooked by the thermal lava underground!
