Playa Blanca Lanzarote Great year round holiday town offering lovely beaches
Playa Blanca has grown from a small fishing village into a delightful year round holiday destination. The atmosphere here is more relaxed and chilled out than its neighbouring resorts.
The main beach in Playa Blanca is made up of soft pale sand with good swimming due to the breakers that have been placed out to see to protect the area. There is a selection of beach bars, with a good choice of cafes and restaurants to take care of your daytime needs while enjoying the lovely sunny days spent on the beach.
Walk the promenade early evening as the sun goes down enjoying the views across to the Island of Fuertaventura. Drop into one of the many bars overlooking the bay for a nice cold beer or cocktail before deciding on your evenings entertainment and dinner plans.
The new Marina Rubicon has added a bit of class to the resort, here you can wander around the shops and fancy boutiques. A good selection of cafes, bars and restaurants are dotted around the marina, many with lovely terraces overlooking the boats and luxury yachts. Playa Blanca is a great year round beach holiday destination with a choice of accommodation to suit most budgets.

Playa Papayago - a very piqturesque beach that is within walking distance but only for the fit. Take plenty of water and sunscreen. It is a busy tourist hotspot so beware!
