Playa Blanca is one of the three most touristic areas in Lanzarote, but contrary to other more crowded areas, this one keeps the unique charm that invites the traveller to go with the flow and dive in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere, inspired by a landscape of smooth colours, long isolated beaches and stunning mountains.
Extremely well-cared and very well preserved despite the arrival of national and international tourism, Playa Blanca is still the reference place for a relaxing trip to Lanzarote. Choosing an accommodation in Playa Blanca is always a good option, specially if you are searching for calmness and nature.
The heart of Playa Blanca is its old village, with typical houses of light colours and located really close to the seaside promenade and the new yacht harbour. This marina, recognised as one of the most exclusive and complete marinas in the island of Lanzarote, is specially designed to accommodate the most amazing boats sailing the Atlantic.
The atmosphere in this area of the coast of Lanzarote is always relaxing, informal and tied to the concept of life known as slow life. Although the arrival of family tourism has moved nudism to coves and less crowded beaches, in the area of Playa Blanca we can still find some spots where to enjoy nature in all its splendour without the need to use a swimsuit.
From Playa Blanca old town we can easily get to the famous beaches of Papagayo, Playa Dorada and Playa Flamingo, go up to the Timanfaya National Park, visit the amazing Janubio salt mines or let ourselves be surprised by the amazing landscape of lava and sea of Los Hervideros.
Ideal for couples, Playa Blanca is also a good place for spending a night in Lanzarote and then go back to Fuerteventura, as this is the area from where the ferries which connect the two islands leave. The journey lasts half an hour, it is really comfortable and it allows you to plan a different holiday, with two complementary destinations in the route.
