Does anyone know if buses are regular to Playa Blanca from CT? Also how much it costs?
Thanks for any advice.
yes there are regular buses to playa blanca,buses run every 20 minutes from teghise to arrrecife,get off at the estacion de gua guas,a big white building in arrecife,if you miss this stop dont worry you can get off at the new station down by the sea at arrecife,it's orange cant miss it,from there you get the number 6 or 8 to playa blanca.
the number 6 or 8 are once an hour,so i would catch the costa teguise bus at 20 past the hour which will get you to the station for about 10 to the hour,if you catch the twenty to you will be leaving it a bit late as the playa bus leaves at 15 mins past.
ask the driver for a €12 bono card,this will give a discounted fare,you only need one card for both of you,price with bono costa teguise to arrecife 95c,without a bono €1.30c,arrecife to playa €2.10c i think with a bono without about €3 not certain but near enough.
jouney time from teguise to playa blanca 90 mins,when you get to playa blanca,the bus stops at the bus station,stay on til the next stop which is the terminus,its next to the port,and make sure you get back on at this stop as the bus station stop is very busy and you might not get a seat.
here are the timetables.give them a few seconds to load.
Thats brilliant info, really looking forward to going next week now, didn't want to hire a car but with the info you have given us, we don't need one.
There's also a local bus you should know about that runs on Sundays to Teguise market which is cheaper than the 8 Euro tourist coach. Runs there between 9am and 12. Comes back between 12 and 2pm.
You can also bus direct to Puerto Calero a swanky marina with swanky shops n cafes for the rich and richer.
We started off walking, then busing and finally hiring a car for 2 days (45 Euros if you shop around and reserve early but booked late and paid 60 as not much available). What with the 20 Euro taxi each way to the airport we calculated hiring a car all week, because so much cheaper per day, would have been a better move. You can do tours but having your own car to explore is much better as you can stop like we did by the most amazing white sand beach in the North going up from Jameos Del Agua. Fuel so cheap too and nothing is far. If on your feet in Costa Teguise and liking walking go towards Arrecife on the prom around the King's residence complete with helipad to Las Caletas which is a short bit before the power station. Past the ginormous power station is a huge old ship run aground. There's a stunning cove with turquoise water, El Ancla beach, en route and if you go into old Spanish bit which is Las Caletas there's a cafe restaurant called Casa Tomas so close to the sea, the waves are known to splash in through the windows! I had the most amazing calamari here. Not many know about this end but we were told about it from some people who have been coming for 12 years and have walked much of the coastline.
