Why go to Playa Blanca

Year-round sunshine, some of Lanzarote's finest beaches, a sparkling marina and peaceful evenings filled with fine food and drink: holidays in Playa Blanca offer all this and more.

Less than half an hour away from the airport, cheap holidays to Playa Blanca have everything you could wish for.

That makes this laidback holiday resort, on the scalloped south coast of Lanzarote, an ideal base for families and couples heading to the Canary Islands.

The modern resort of Playa Blanca is dotted with golden sandy beaches that can be used throughout the year, thanks to the eternal spring that blesses the Canary Islands - which sit off the coast of north-west Africa in the Atlantic Ocean. Some of the best beaches in Lanzarote - at nearby Papagayo - are a short cliff-top walk from the eastern edge of Playa Blanca, although you can also take a boat.
