Holidays in Playa Blanca are great for both couples and families. And it's easy to see why. Tucked on Lanzarote's sun-drenched southwest tip, this quiet resort is home to a number of top beaches. The white sandy sweep in the heart of town - from which Playa Blanca gets its name - is the proud owner of a coveted Blue Flag, as is neighbouring Playa Dorada beach. And a little further afield you've got the dreamy Papagayo sands where you can get an all over tan!
On the sunbathing front, this place gets a big thumbs up. But what else can you expect on holidays to Playa Blanca? Well, for starters you can hop on a ferry over to Fuerteventura from here. And Lanzarote's famous Timanfaya National Park isn't far away, either.
When it comes to eating out, you can take your pick from the many waterside cafes and restaurants that line Playa Blanca's promenade. If you like seafood, you'll be in your element. Try pan-fried 'sama' fish with salted potatoes called 'papas arugadas' – it's simply delicious.
As this resort has a traditional, relaxed air about it, nightlife in Playa Blanca is nice and low key. Cue long al fresco dinners beneath the stars. Balmy evenings sipping cocktails. And moonlit strolls along the seafront. Sure, there are a handful of disco bars, but generally speaking, this place is wonderfully relaxed.
Accommodation-wise, Playa Blanca has got the lot. If you've got the kids in tow, the Thomson Superfamily property, the Playa Flamingo Apartments, is a must. If it's just the two of you, our couples' favourite, the Hotel H10 Lanzarote Princess may suit. And if you're looking for a luxury holiday in Playa Blanca, there's the glamorous Natura Palace to think about.
So, whether it's an all singing, all dancing summer holiday or just a last minute holiday to Playa Blanca, this resort will charm the socks off you.
