Playa Blanca is situated on the south side of Lanzarote and has been awarded, on various occasions, for its beauty. This peaceful and pleasant spot is the ideal place for the whole family to take a relaxing villa holiday. It is a pretty resort with a sandy beach and popular promenade, four stretches of shoreline, and the nearby nature reserve of Papagayo. The resort itself has a large harbour shared by fishing boats and ferries that will take you to the island of Fuerteventura for a daytrip. Pavement cafés and good seafood restaurants offer a relaxing atmosphere perfect for unwinding.
Things to do in Playa Blanca
The third largest and most popular holiday resort in Lanzarote, Playa Blanca provides something for everyone, young and old, offering the quintessential Canary Island holiday experience. Central Playa Blanca has a lively evening atmosphere with a variety of bars and restaurants on offer. In the eastern area of Playa Blanca is Marina Rubicon, a modern harbour area. The harbour is well worth a visit with many restaurants and shops to peruse. El Golfo is a small seaside village located west of the town where you can enjoy a fantastic fresh fish dish whilst taking in the sea views. The village is famous for its Charco de Los Clicos, a green lagoon formed from the crater of an extinct volcano submerged into the Atlantic Ocean.
Playa Blanca hosts several markets throughout the week offering local handicrafts which would make ideal souvenir to take home. Our villas in Playa Blanca offer the perfect base for you to explore the region from, and when you're done for the day, your private villa is waiting for an evening of relaxation.
History and Culture in Playa Blanca
Discover the history of the island with a visit to Timanfaya National Park, declared a national park back in 1968. This spectacular volcanic landscape covers a quarter of the island and was created over six years of near-continuous volcanic eruptions that took place between 1730 and 1736. Lanzarote’s dry climate means that the Volcanic landscape has been relatively unchanged since that time.
Family holidays in Playa Blanca
Playa Blanca is great for families and the ideal location for a family villa holiday in Lanzarote, with so much to see and do. With flat terrain, the stunning Papagayo Beaches are located on the outskirts of the resort, along the coastline to the east. They are a collection of picturesque beaches with golden sand and crystal clear waters offering peaceful and secluded surroundings. Why not jump on a ferry from the harbour and take a 30 minute journey over to Corralejo in Fuerteventura. The popular Parque Natural de Las Dunas is worth visiting with its sand dunes measuring 10 miles long and 3 miles wide. Playa Blanca has a fantastic water park situated in the heart of the resort, Aqualava. The park features a spectacular water castle, wave pool, water slides and the Magma lazy river.
Adventurous activities in Playa Blanca
From your ideal Playa Blanca private villa you will find plenty to keep you entertained, from sea kayaking to a volcanic landscape jeep safari or perhaps something really different like flyboarding, where you levitate some 12 metres above the sea level. After all that excitement head to the smart marina for a few refreshments and some upscale dining and boutique shopping. All of these activities are available all year round, making Playa Blanca a great destination for a winter sun villa holiday.
