Lanzarote is part of the Canary Islands found off the west coast of Africa and 1000km south of mainland Spain. The island is 80km long and 40km wide. Lanzarote is a beautiful island with over 300 volcanic openings giving it in places a strangely lunar appearance.

There are many places to visit throughout the island. Playa Blanca is the most southerly resort on Lanzarote and therefore ideal for sun, sea and sand.

In 20 years it has developed from a little fishing village with only 30 houses into one of the most modern beach resorts in the Canary Islands and has the longest beach promenade in Europe that extends to the new Marina Rubicon which has a charm of its own.

There are numerous excellent fish restaurants along the seafront where you can sit and look across the sea to Fuerteventura.

This southern part of the island has the best beaches namely Papagayo, Playa Dorada and Playa Flamingo.

Playa Blanca has a quiet relaxing atmosphere, which is a contrast to the nightlife of Puerto del Carmen further north.

Enjoy a day trip to Fuerteventura. Only 20 minutes ferry trip from Playa Blanca port, disembarking at Corralejo, Fuerteventura. Ferry times available at the port.
