Playa Blanca is situated on the south side of Lanzarote and through the years has become the third largest tourist area on the island. Awarded on various occasions for its beauty, this peaceful and pleasant spot is the ideal place for the whole family to relax in.
You can find all kinds of restaurants, shops and bars along the Playa Blanca boardwalk, and the streets running parallel to it, at the edge of the old town. Another area that`s a must to visit is the recreational port, replete with newly constructed facilities of high quality. It also boasts a new shopping centre.
Among the beaches, those of Dorada and Flamingo stand out for their white sand and proximity to the main hotels in the area. However, without doubt, the beaches of Papagayo lead the pack. A network of fine white sandy coves is a delight to all its visitors. Although they can be reached on foot or by bike, a car would be recommended since it`s a long trek.
