Holidays to Playa Blanca give you the chance to fly and flop on loads of sandy beaches, or live it up at a posh marina.
The clue’s in the name on Playa Blanca holidays. It literally translates as ‘white beach’ – and what a belter it is. Resort-wise, it’s not on Puerto del Carmen’s level, but it’s got its own classy rep. You’ll find it at the bottom of Lanzarote, which means it’s easy to daytrip to Canary Islands must-visit, Timanfaya National Park.
This place waggles its finger at high-rises, bar the odd swanky hotel. And the Marina Rubicon is another example of the town’s plush feel. It’s laid out like a village with streets and squares full of designer shops and nice restaurants. If you fancy switching up your pool scene, there’s a public one here, too. Or you’ve got nearby Aqualava waterpark for a serious adrenaline dose.
Playa Blanca’s main beach – AKA Playa Dorada – is slap-bang in the middle of town. It’s a Blue Flag-waving number, with enough sunbeds and watersports to keep everyone happy. But this place has a triple-pronged beach scene. You’ve got another pair to help yourself to, including Playa Flamingo – it's cuddled by breakwaters, so the sea’s pond-calm.
