Great Things to Do

There are plenty of things to do in Playa Blanca whether you prefer to relax on one of the three sandy beaches or to explore the stunning countryside.

Take to the Water

There are plenty of boat trips leaving from Playa Blanca that offer the chance to see some of the picturesque tiny islands just off the coast, as well as snorkelling and diving deep in the ocean. Some companies also offer lessons on how to sail the boat, you never know, that might come in handy in the future!

Shop by the Sea

Marina Rubicon is a gorgeous place to hang out both in the sunshine and under the stars. There is a local market there every Wednesday and Saturday which sells a huge variety of locally sourced goods. If you can’t make market day, then pop down to enjoy the designer shops and delicious restaurants.

Work for the View

Watching over Playa Blanca is Montana Roja, a huge dormant volcano which is very popular with walkers. It’s worth the effort that it takes to reach the top as the views of the surrounding areas are stunning, and the walk around the crater is exciting for both adults and children alike.

Hit the Beach

There are several beaches around the area which are all protected coves making them ideal for swimming and sunbathing. There are plenty of water sports available on the busier beaches or head to The Papagayo coves which are part of a national park making them largely unspoilt and great fun to explore and relax in.

Getting Around

Lanzarote is easy to navigate with a range of transport readily available. The public buses are a cheap way for visitors to explore the island, most holiday makers tend to use taxis and hire cars as it offers that extra flexibility during your stay. The islands are full of cycling and hiking trails for the more adventurous and there are daily boat services hopping between each island.

By Bus

There are comfortable, air conditioned buses which leave from most of the main resorts regularly and stop at the island’s most famous attractions. The smaller, local buses are slightly less reliable.

By Car

Hiring a car is cheap, easy and highly recommended. The island’s main roads are easy to navigate and well looked after; the smaller roads can be somewhat of a challenge. Driving is on the left.
