Flanked by ebony-coloured mountains and facing the expansive Mediterranean Sea is Playa Blanca, literally meaning ‘white beach’ in Spanish. This cool and fun-loving beach resort town is the newest entrant in the long list of beach towns in the Canary Islands. Located on the southernmost tip of Lanzarote, Playa Blanca holidays have a lot to offer.
Playa Blanca is blessed with stunning pale-yellow beaches, beautiful sea-facing promenades and quaint fishing towns dotting its long coastline. Good for both family holidays as well as romantic escapades, Playa Blanca has a number of attractions for nature lovers, history buffs and adventure seekers too. The resort is surrounded by beautiful, rugged volcanic mountains (which have become dormant in recent years), leaving behind a landscape filled with caves, lagoons and rock formations. You'll find plenty of things to do during your Playa Blanca holidays, soak up the spectacular views as you sit down for a fresh seafood platter or a tall glass of wine at one of the several cocktail bars and lounges of the town. When you are not laying your towel down at the beaches, you can take a day-trip to Cueva de Los Verdes, a cavernous volcanic formation, or El Golfo, a half-submerged cone of a severely eroded volcano. With pristine beaches and a balmy year-round climate, Playa Blanca holidays are your perfect chance to let your hair down and get close to nature.
