Playa Blanca is situated on the southern tip of the island of Lanzarote. It still retains the atmosphere of a small fishing village although now it is a flourishing yet tranquil resort. Playa Blanca stretches for over 7km from just west of the beautiful Papagayo beaches to the Faro De Pechiguera lighthouse with a seafront promenade along the entire way.
The Marina Rubicon is a recent development in the resort. Designed to be a sea-front development of upmarket restaurants and boutiques sitting next to a marina full of luxury yachts and boats it brings a welcome air of sophistication with it.
There are several beaches to choose from and as the area is built around a large bay (separated into 3 smaller bays) the beaches are sheltered and ideal for swimming, water sports and sun-bathing. There are another 2 lovely beaches within walking distance of the resort centre; Playa Dorada to the east and Flamingo to the west. The Papagayo beaches, the islands most spectacular beaches, lie approximately 2km east of the Marina Rubicon. Please note there is a small entrance fee to these beaches owing to the fact they are deemed a nature reserve.
You will find all types of restaurants, shops and bars along the Playa Blanca boardwalk and the streets running parallel to it. You will be spoiled for choice when it comes to eating out.
Playa Blanca is a convenient location from which to explore the rest of the island’s popular attractions. In fact, the island’s most popular and visited attraction, the Timanfaya National Park is located just a few minutes from Playa Blanca. The charming village of Yaiza is also a pleasant day trip.
