Holidays to Playa Blanca
Playa Blanca is located in the sunny south of Lanzarote and is the fastest growing holiday destination on the island. This pleasant town has been developed quite sympathetically from the tiny fishing village it was originally in to the attractive holiday resort it is today.
A good choice for couples and great for family holidays. Playa Blanca has a number of great beaches that are particularly popular with families for their gently sloping sands and safe waters. The small sandy town beach is by the resort centre and shopping area and has views of the port. Set either side of the port and resort centre are the picturesque Playa Dorada beach offering a variety of water sports and the equally appealing Playa Flamingo beach. In addition to the resort's beaches you can find the nearby Papagayo beach this is located just outside Playa Blanca and is recognised as Lanzarote's best beach.
A picturesque promenade runs the length of the beach front and is lined with bars and restaurants. Visitors can enjoy refreshing drinks on the terraces and enjoy spectacular sea views. The new Marina Rubicon is great place for a stroll and a popular place for shoppers with the local market setting up their stalls a couple of times a week amid the chic boutiques and shops. Evenings are also a good time to visit the Marina area as there are several good restaurants and bars.
Holidays to Playa Blanca offer a good choice of nightlife, but holiday makers who prefer a lively scene with late night drinking and dancing may prefer the resorts of Costa Teguise or the island's liveliest resort Puerto del Carmen.
