Playa Blanca is a peaceful resort situated on the southern tip of Lanzarote, approximately 15 minute ferry trip to Fuerteventura. It enjoys the best weather on the island and stunning views across to the neighbouring islands of Fuerteventura and Los Lobos separated from Lanzarote by the straits of Bocaina.
Playa Blanca was originally a small fishing village and from the attractive harbour you can see the local fishermen landing their catch. From here you can also take a 35 minute ferry crossing to Fuerteventura.
A pretty seafront walk will take you the length of Playa Blanca stretching from the Pechiguera Point in the west to Los Colorades beach in the east. In fact, Playa Blanca boasts 5 golden sandy beaches and all are well away from the road so are ideal for families and children. Nearby, are also the famous idyllic beaches of Papagayo. Building is prohibited here to keep it unspoilt, but the beaches can be reached by car (although a bit bumpy) and also by sea taxi from the harbour.
