Costa de Antigua (that was formerly called Nuevo Horizonte) is a built up area about 2 km north of Caleta de Fuste, which is reached by an access road from the main FV-2 road or along a seafront promenade to Caleta de Fuste, which has a single width tarmac road running alongside. It is only 5 km from the airport.
In the 1980’s the area started to be developed. It currently has 3 hotels and a range of apartment complexes (holiday and residential), private villas and vacant plots of land.
There are three 3 star hotels:
Elba Lucia – Sport & Suite Hotel
Globales Costa Tropical
The area is on the N0.3 bus route which links Caleta de Fuste to the airport and the capital of Puerto del Rosario. There are 2 bus stops with a bus service every 30 minutes in each direction. The taxi rank is outside the Costa Tropical Hotel, and it costs about 5€ to get to Caleta de Fuste.
The area stands at the top of high cliffs so there isn’t a beach here. The nearest beach is in Caleta de Fuste.
The facilities in Costa de Antigua include a couple of small supermarkets, a few bars, a restaurant, a laundry, a hair salon and a hire shop.
St. Patrick’s Day is a big celebration in Costa de Antigua, as is the local Fiesta of Santiago Apostile between the 22 – 25 July.
