Winter training in Lanzarote

Ivan Rana training at Sands Beach Resort

Come and join us at the perfect winter training destination!

In the last few years, Lanzarote has emerged as the number one European Sports Destination, with so many pro and amateur athletes choosing to come here to do their winter training.

The most obvious reason is our weather. Unlike, for example, The Balearic Islands, there’s no chance of snow or low temperatures to interrupt your training, and we hardly ever see rain. The ocean around us is warm enough even in midwinter to allow for open water swim sessions, and our outdoor pools are heated so that you can swim without being choked on chlorine fumes.

For athletes from northern Europe, a week’s solid, focused training during the winter will reap huge dividends for next season, and that’s why The British Olympic Paratriathlon teams, the Uplace triathlon team, professional racing drivers, and many amateur athletes choose us to give them their winter boost.

But there’s much more to Lanzarote, and to Sands Beach Resort, than just great weather, and here are some more reasons you should consider booking a training break with us this winter:

We’re Family Friendly

Costa Teguise for Families

Our resort is tuned into the needs of families, which means you can bring your partners and children with you – they can enjoy a great holiday while you focus on your training. But if you prefer to focus purely on training, one of our plazas is for adults only.

We Have Bella Bayliss On Site

Bella is a retired 16 times Ironman champion and she’s on hand all through the winter to work and coach resident athletes and visitors. You can join her for some amazing pool sessions, or head out with her on weekend rides.

Everyone tells us our breakfast buffet is the best on the island, and it’s the perfect start to every training day! But we also offer fabulous and healthy lunches at the Mai Tai poolbar and a wide range of fabulous food from our evening menu.

We’re in A Resort

Sands Beach is located right in the heart of Costa Teguise, which is one of the island’s main resort areas. It means you’re a few moments walk away from hundreds of restaurants, bars and shops, and some of the island’s best beaches.
