Las Caletas is a suburban area on the coast, built as a result of its proximity to Playa Ensenada de Las Caletas and thanks to its prime location between the capital Arrecife and the touristic hotspot of Costa Teguise.
Where is Las Caletas?
Las Caletas is found on the east coast of Lanzarote, between the towns of Arrecife and Costa Teguise. Nearby you can also find Los Mármoles port.
What to see in Las Caletas
Playa Ensenada de las Caletas
Commonly known as Playa Las Caletas, this is a 400m long sandy beach with calm waters. You can access it by foot or by car, although there are few parking spaces (50), the car park is not often full. The bad news is that there are not many facilities.
Places of interest
El Telamón: This 136m long cargo ship is 40 years old and is beached very close to Ensenada de los Mármoles. This ghost ship was a tourist attraction, and you could also dive and snorkel inside of it. However, nowadays access is prohibited due to its deteriorating state and the dangers this poses. But you can still go and see it nonetheless, and even take some good photos from the beach just opposite. Make the most of it because it won’t be here forever.
Visit Costa Teguise: Just 10 minutes away is Costa Teguise. It is the ideal place to visit if you want to enjoy its fantastic beaches, have a nice dinner, or wander around some of its shops.
