Las Cucharas Beach
Playa Las Cucharas is the largest beach of Costa Teguise and most central. This large beach is made of three smaller beaches. These beaches, especially at the Southern most end, are backed by a promenade with a large selection of shops and bars.
These beaches are typically the busiest in Costa Teguise. They are safe sandy beaches with clear water.
This beach is also one of Europe’s premier Windsurf and Wing Foil spots. Wing foilers and wind surfers launch from the beach and head outside the bay area to the more exposed windy offshore spot.
There are sun beds that can be hired by the day, with lots of local shops and bars this can be a very comfortable spot to kick back and relax.
The promenade leads North past the next main beach of Los Charcos and South to the kings house and beach. There are exercise swings and bikes at locations on the promenade. Many visitors enjoy strolling along and taking in the lovely sea views. All of the beaches in Costa Teguise are accessible along this walk way.
