Playa Blanca (White Beach) is a very up and coming resort in Lanzarote. Once a little fishing village at the South-western coast of the island, Playa Blanca has been developing over the past few years (and still is) into a large tourist resort.
Within Playa Blanca you will find the most modern Hotels on the Island, this is mainly due to all the new developments on this resort. Like the other resorts in Lanzarote, you will of course find plenty of shops, bars and restaurants for you to choose from.
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.
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.
From Playa Blanca you are also around 15 minutes ride from Fuerteventura which is the closest Islands to Lanzarote. This allows you to travel over and explore some of the best beaches in the world.
The new Marina is home to some excursions which are great fun for all the family, to view more information about various excursions you can visit out Lanzarote Excursions page.

We started going to playa blanca after always going to carmen, the area is lovely and flatter which helps when you have to drag around two kids. great choice of restaurants and bars and some lovely beaches!
