Playa Blanca in Lanzarote
Overview of Playa Blanca, Lanzarote
Once a small fishing village near the most southerly tip of Lanzarote, Playa Blanca has developed into Lanzarote's second most popular resort. Playa Blanca (the white beach) from which the town takes its name has a European Blue Flag for cleanliness and is at the heart of the resort. Jet2.com offer cheap flights to Lanzarote for long or short breaks away in the fabulous Canary islands.
Playa Blanca is a recent development, with a beautiful new promenade along the sea front. Despite being a relatively new resort every effort has been made to match the traditional with the modern. Playa Blanca offers a good mixture of accommodation varying from low-budget breaks to luxury 5 star All-Inclusive Hotels.
One of the main attractions in Playa Blanca are the nearby beaches - golden sand, clear water and blue skies, mean the beaches of Playa Blanca are great places to lay back, chill out and top up your tan. Playa Flamingo is a few minutes walk to the west of the town along the sea-front walkway and Playa Dorada (Golden Beach) has warm honey coloured sand where the sea is generally very calm.
Some of the best beaches in the Canary Islands are just four miles (six km) away at Papagayo Beach. The resort is mainly geared for families and couples looking for a relaxing time either on one of the beaches or wandering around the promenade looking to do some shopping. With frequent cheap flights available to Lanzarote from the UK, you will be relaxing on one of these fabulous beaches in no time.
A night out in Playa Blanca will of course not be as busy as the likes of Puerto Del Carmen but there is plenty of entertainment for you to choose from. For a more lively night out why not travel over to Puerto Del Carmen.
