Transport over to Famara.

Asked by: 9th March 2011

Hi there,

Last time I was in Costa Teguise I really wanted to go on a day trip or local bus to famara to see the waves but couldnt seem to find a way of doing it other than hiring a car.

Ive heard thats its quite remote too, is that true as I am travelling alone as I always do to gorgeous Lanza but dont fancy driving the roads for the first time on my own…


Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hi Sarah,
    Unsure as to buses but i think a taxi from teguise would not be more than 20 euros,
    You could spend the day there sunbathing and wathing the waves and the surfers,
    There are restuarants etc for something to eat etc, And its remote but the people are friendly and it it a busy beach etc, its worth a look,
    My wife was unsure of driving with having to concentrate on the gears and wrong side of road etc she felt approaching roundabouts etc and the gears would be to much, so we got an automatic for her and she only had to think about the road ahead and her problems were solved,
    You can get automatics quite reasonable and it will open up the island to you,
    Give it a go,

    Sarah – I would honestly say that the roads are very easy – I have driven over the years and it really is worth a try – as Davy said it really will ‘open up the island’ for you.

    as above,the bus runs every two hours from 11am till around 9 pm i think and will take you into famara village.
    if you fancy driving it’s really easy to get to and not that remote,you just drive to teguise main town,go left through the town onto a long main road,over a roundabout that oddly goes nowhere other than straight on! then right at the signpost for calleta de famara, the first right you come to actually,good roads not dirt tracks .road maps are only a couple of euros and easy to navigate. well worth the visit tho,there are restarants and bars in the main village but the beach area is lovely and unspoilt.
