Once a small fishing village on Lanzarote's south west coast, Playa Blanca is now a delightful resort, with elegant hotels and stylish holiday houses bordered by a golden crescent of fine sandy beach. Its picturesque promenade is lined with several oceanfront cafés and restaurants, serving traditional dishes and with plenty of fresh fish on the menu. The charming marina is a port of call for ferries and cruise liners, with regular excursions available to neighbouring Fuerteventura. Sun worshippers should venture to nearby Playa Dorada and Playa Flamingo's lagoon, or head to Playas de Papagayo, further along the coast, ideal for year-round sunbathing. Playa Blanca is a wonderful holiday setting, retaining its traditional village charm.
