What’s the best place to stay in Lanzarote for cycling?
We made Playa Blanca our base for tackling the Lanzarote road cycling routes. It’s a nice town with a beautiful seafront and some excellent restaurants. It’s also convenient for the stunning Timanfaya National Park and, due to mountains that block the trade winds from the northeast, it is typically drier and hotter than further north.
Where you stay will depend on what you want from your Lanzarote cycling holidays. Whether that’s a family break, cycle routes from Puerto del Carmen or triathlon challenges. For example:
- Costa Teguise or Puerto del Carmen are worth a look for pure bike holidays and accessing some of the best cycle routes in Lanzarote;
- Playa Blanca is one to check for upmarket, family-focused holidays partnered with some biking in Lanzarote; or
- Timanfaya National Park (and Club La Santa) if you’re a triathlete or are going all-in on the sports aspect of your holiday.
Costa Teguise or Puerto del Carmen
The reason we think Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen are the best resorts for cyclists is their location. Check any Lanzarote cycling map and you’ll see they’re roughly half way down the island’s east coast. This means you have good access to both the mountains of the north, and Timanfaya National Park in the west.
If you’re choosing between Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen, we would go for Costa Teguise. Puerto del Carmen is bigger and busier than Costa Teguise (and also Playa Blanca). It might be a good choice if you’re looking for shopping and nightlife. Costa Teguise has been going more upmarket in recent years and tends to appeal to an older generation.
Both have bike hire shops, plus good restaurants and bars.
Playa Blanca is in the far south of the island, so you have to go further to access the cycle routes in Lanzarote that help you explore the north. Or accept the more limited route options offered by Playa Blanca’s cycle routes. It does, however, have the reputation for being the most upmarket and family-orientated of the three resorts. It’s also meant to be a bit warmer.
The resort has a good selection of bike hire shops, restaurants and bars.
La Santa is on the northern side of Lanzarote, in a central location, meaning you can use it as a handy base for the whole island. It’s also good for routes over the Timanfaya National Park, or if you want to explore the various pretty fishing villages and the beautiful scenery linking them. The wind here can be a bit feisty, so be warned!

Costa Calero, Puerto Calero
Costa Calero is a four-star hotel that offers a quieter break than some other Lanzarote cycling hotel options. It’s around three miles west of Puerto del Carmen, so you’re away from the hustle and bustle but still within easy reach of the excellent cycle trails nearby. That doesn’t mean the hotel is light on facilities though – you still get four pools, three bars and evening entertainment if you’re in the mood to enjoy it.
There is a cycling tour company based in the basement of the hotel, so you know it’s a great choice for a biking holiday in Lanzarote. You can rent all kinds of bikes and store them safely when not in use, with full servicing and any repairs needed all taken care of. Guided bike tours are also offered.
- We love: The more relaxing location away from all the regular tourists.

The hotel has its own mini-golf course, pools and a spa with Turkish baths and Finnish saunas – what more could you need?

Dreams, Playa Blanca
Dreams Resort is a phenomenal luxury hotel offering five-star accommodation right on the beachfront in Playa Blanca. Rooms are beautifully appointed, and there is a stunning shared garden space and nine (yes, nine) pools. Just because it’s opulent, doesn’t mean it isn’t family-friendly – there’s a water park and a playground, along with a games room too. Multiple restaurants cover various cuisines, along with snack bars too.
The hotel is in a great location, not just because of the beach but because of easy access to nearby cycling routes. There’s a gym too, and spa treatments are available, including massages. Bike hire is available through the hotel too.
- We love: The stylish, contemporary decor throughout the rooms and shared facilities.
- Be aware: It’s one of the pricier Lanzarote hotels on the island.
- Best for: A relaxing break with a touch of luxury.
A four-star hotel situated just 750 yards from the beach, MYND Yaiza is a Playa Blanca hotel designed to accommodate all guests’ needs. Indeed the hotel is split into two main areas – there’s a ‘Family Space’ where you’ll find children’s pools and entertainment, and a ‘Relax Zone’ aimed more at Lanzarote cycling groups or couples who want a more peaceful escape. Both sides of the hotel share the restaurants though – so meal times will be a little busy during peak hours.
The hotel has its own spa area and a gym if you want to fit some workouts into your training camp. There’s also a bike centre onsite, so you can hire your bike and carry out any repairs as necessary without arranging it elsewhere.
- We love: How the hotel creates separate spaces for families and guests who want to relax.
- Be aware: There are two distinct sides – make sure you book the right one for you!
- Best for: Casual cycling groups or families interested in a biking break on Lanzarote.
