There’s only so long that many of us can lie on a sun lounger soaking up the sun’s delicious rays before the feet start twitching and we get the urge to give the quest for the perfect tan a bit of a break whilst we go exploring to see what else Costa Teguise and Lanzarote has to offer.
Though we say it ourselves, Sands Beach Resort is in a peach of a position for giving guests a range of options that includes some pretty cool ways to get around.
Explore on Foot
The cheapest option and good for working up an appetite for lunch at the Mai Tai pool bar. Head to the right along the promenade and you’re rewarded with a lovely seaside stroll past beaches, palm trees and inviting cafés until you arrive in the centre of Costa Teguise. Head left and it’s a very different scene with country trails and lone white cottages; a relaxing and tranquil terrain for those times when you fancy being at one with nature.
Hire a Bicycle
You can hire bikes at Sands Beach and cycle further along those coastal tracks feeling the wind in your hair and the sea spray on your face as you glide through the eye-catching volcanic countryside and tiny, picturesque hamlets. It’s also good for the leg muscles, which will help make that tan look even better.
Saddle up on a Scooter
One of the coolest ways to get around and venture a bit farther afield is on a snazzy looking Ayumi Capri from Blue Speed Motos. The gleaming white scooter matches Lanzarote’s pristine buildings and is a fun mode of transport to use to visit picture postcard Teguise in the hills (an added bonus is you can park anywhere). Alternatively head north up the coast to the Cesár Manrique treasures at the Jameos Del Agua or the Jardín de Cactus.
Take a Road Trip by Car
Lanzarote’s roads are quiet and a driver’s dream. Hire a car and get to know the whole island, discovering great little restaurants and along the way being wowed by the likes of Timanfaya National Park, the hypnotic green lake at El Golfo or the endless beach at Famara.
Stand Up Paddle
This really is the most unique form of travelling on Lanzarote – by sea on a surf board.
Expert instructor, and all round nice guy, Chris Diaz runs his SUP Lanzarote school from Sands Beach Resort. After a couple of lessons in the lagoon, the next step is to take to the high seas and stand up paddle to the centre of Costa Teguise; maybe even as part of his SUP and tapas trip. Stand up paddle is easy to get the hang of and a lot of fun.
Just think, a stand up paddle tapas tour – how many people do you know can say they’ve been on a taps tour on a surf board? A holiday at Sands Beach Resort offers so much more than a week or two in the sun.
