About Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca is a tranquil town situated on the southern tip of the island which takes its name from the white sands of its beaches. It is a relaxed un-spoilt resort that has been sympathetically developed so that the centre of the town has retained much of its original fishing village charm. Playa Blanca has a fantastic selection of restaurants throughout the resort catering for all tastes and budgets. From the sophistication of the Marina and charm of the old town, through to the rugged coast at the lighthouse, Playa Blanca provides contrast and variety more than any other resort on Lanzarote.
