Playa Blanca, Lanzarote – I love this place !

Papagayo Beach, Playa Blanca, LanzarotePlaya Blanca on the island of Lanzarote is a great place. It is located at the southern tip of the Canary Island of Lanzarote and is about 40 minutes drive from the airport. If you like your holidays laid back and like great views of the ocean and nearby islands then the resort of Playa Blanca might be perfect for you.

I first visited Lanzarote a few years ago. I was staying on the nearby island of Fuerteventura and I decided to take the ferry for a day trip to Playa Blanca. The journey only takes about 30 minutes or only about 20 minutes if the catch the fast ferry. You catch the ferry from Corralejo and and it takes you to Playa Blanca. That was my first visit to Playa Blanca and I was very impressed.

Playa Blanca has a very long promenade which must stretch about 2 miles. It is wide and perfect for walking or cycling. The promenade runs from the port at Playa Blanca to the marina at the far end of the resort. At the marina you will find plenty of shops, bars and restaurants and there is also a pleasant boardwalk too.

If you carry on walking past the marina you will eventually come to the famous beaches of Papagayo. Whilst these beaches are remote with very few facilities they are very wide and sandy.

Playa Blanca has a good choice of hotels as well as self catering apartments. In addition, there is also a huge selection of villas to rent and many have private swimming pools.
