Playa Blanca holidays take you to the most southerly resort on Lanzarote. Once a humble fishing village, it is a sophisticated, sizeable resort with a large marina. Framed by barren, volcanic mountains, it has a choice of soft sandy beaches that slope gently into the sea. The main beach, Playa Blanca lies centrally on a wide bay and is backed by a promenade with plenty of bars and shops. Other beaches are Playa Flamingo and Playa Dorada. A selection of water sports is available from the beach. This relaxed resort is popular with families and couples of all ages. The port in the resort has regular ferry trips to Fuerteventura which is only a thirty-minute cruise away. Lanzarote is a beautiful and awe-inspiring island with much to see and do. If you only take one excursion, visit the Timanfaya National Park. The volcanic activity on the island has given it an alien landscape like no other on earth. If you want to explore the island fully, car hire is recommended.
Low cost Playa Blanca holidays offer a range of good accommodation, a high proportion of which is comprised of modern self-catering apartments and villas. The hotels are first class and service is excellent. If choosing a hotel, take a look at the all-inclusive option as it may be cheaper than you think. Playa Blanca's restaurants and bars provide a wide menu and cater for most tastes. The unadventurous palate can always find familiar food. If you are new to island cuisine, order tapas and you'll receive a selection of dishes, ideal as tasters. Nightlife is low key with the larger hotels providing much of the evening entertainment. The resort has a good number of shops catering for essentials as well as the usual gifts and souvenirs. The marina is the place to go for boutique shopping. A craft market is held on Wednesday and Saturday.
