Holidays to Playa Blanca
Travellers looking for a laid-back beach holiday in the Canary Islands will love the sunny seaside resort of Playa Blanca in Lanzarote. Here visitors can spend the days sunning themselves on the sands, savouring long lunches and dinners overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, and strolling along the beachfront promenade at night under the stars. This is the ideal locale for families and couples who want to get away from it all.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Playa Blanca
The main draw to Playa Blanca is its beautiful golden sand beaches. The 9-kilometre long bay here is divided into a number of wide swathes of sand, perfect for catching some rays or swimming or snorkelling in the calm blue waters. The most popular beach is Papagayo for its pretty bays, which are sheltered by steep cliffs. Papagayo is part of the protected national park, Monumento Natural de Los Ajaches, so the area has an unspoilt and rugged feel to it.
In addition to stunning beaches, Playa Blanca also has a wide range of tempting cafes and restaurants. The beachfront promenade is a lovely place to stop for a cold drink and gaze out over the beach and the ocean. The Marina Rubicon also has some lovely eateries where you can enjoy fresh seafood, Spanish tapas, and international cuisine, while watching the yachts and fishing boats bob gently on the waves. Although Playa Blanca is very quiet in the evenings, there are a few spots where you can enjoy some tasty cocktails and listen to live music.
Visitors on a holiday to Playa Blanca who tire of the beaches can take an exciting day trip to Timanfaya National Park. Stepping into the park is like entering another world, with fabulous volcanic rock formations, steaming fissures, and a restaurant that cooks its dishes over a barbecue fuelled by geothermal heat. With over 100 soaring volcanic peaks, the park is a must-see attraction for anybody on a holiday to Lanzarote.
