Luxury Playa Blanca Holidays

For white-sand beaches

Playa Blanca

This former fishing village on Lanzarote’s southernmost tip has blossomed into one of the island’s best beach resorts. Playa Blanca’s namesake is the ribbon of white-sand that extends along the southern coast.

There’s a beach-focused vibe that means long days on the sand and sunsets spent in a waterfront bar, with the Marina Rubicon providing the resort’s best picks of stylish bars, Mediterranean restaurants and designer shops.As for the beaches, there are quiet bays and watersports zones, plus the picturesque Papagayo beaches known for their secluded, sheltered setting.

In the evenings, duck into a local restaurant for a few native Canarian dishes – expect Spanish, African and South American influences with a big focus on seafood and tapas.

Playa Blanca has a long stretch of sweeping shoreline, but if you want to experience some really special beaches, why not visit Playas de Papagayo, a collection of five remote beaches just a short drive from Playa Blanca in Los Ajaches National Park.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Lanzarote is around 4 hours 15 minutes.

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Arrecife airport to Playa Blanca is approximately 40 minutes.

When to go

Summers in Lanzarote are warm and dry, rarely falling below 25°C. A reliable beach destination all year round, the Canaries boast some the warmest winters around (temperatures tend to stick to the late teens), with lovely mild springs and autumns.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.


Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
