Weather Averages for Costa Teguise in January
Averages for Costa Teguise in January
Costa Teguise, Spain, is a small town situated on the eastern coastline of Lanzarote. Although Lanzarote is a part of the Spanish Canary Islands chain in the Atlantic Ocean, the island is actually closer to Northern Africa, namely Morocco, than it is to mainland Spain, and the town enjoys the same warm weather as the African continent.
January is both the coldest month in Costa Teguise in terms of air and sea temperatures, and one of the wettest, but these conditions are still preferable over a typical British January. Rather than the sub zero temperatures and icy storms, Costa Teguise sees temperatures range from a pleasant 14 degrees Celsius overnight to a warm 20 degrees during the day, similar to Lanzarote’s capital Arrecife. Sea temperatures hover around the 13 degree mark, while rainfall is a modest 30 mm on average across the month.
On a rainy day, the Fundación César Manrique is a great way to spend an afternoon. The home of famed Spanish artist César Manrique is designed in the contemporary art style he was renowned for, and a selection of his most famous works can be seen in the adjoining gallery. Manrique was born just down the road in Arrecife, but lived at the Fundación during his adult life. The property not only gives a look at Manrique’s public life, but also his personal life, and is particularly suited to lovers of modern or abstract art.
Jesters Bar is one of the most well known, and well visited, bars in the town. This English-run establishment is especially popular during the early hours, as it’s one of the only bars in Costa Teguise that remains open until 4 am. There’s a nightly DJ and dance floor, although for those looking for a quieter time, there’s also a relaxed area with TVs showing British sporting events. As well as beers, ciders, wines, and cocktails, this place is also known for its range of shots, including the unique ‘Jester Cake’.
Apartamentos Santa Rosa are located just a 10 minute walk from the beachfront and offer rooms from £23 per night. Rooms are basic yet comfortable, but the main draw of this complex is the adjoining leisure centre, with bowling lanes, mini golf, soft play areas, and swimming pools. The outdoor pool is even heated during the winter. Apartments sleep up to 6 guests, so are suitable for families and large groups.
