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.
Away from the beach, a seafront promenade connects the hotels, self-catering apartments and villas of Playa Blanca, while the dazzling Marina Rubicon is packed full of shops and eateries. There are also a few late-night bars and a couple of places to dance and sing, but if you want nightlife in Lanzarote, consider the livelier resort of Puerto del Carmen, 25 minutes north of Playa Blanca.
Day trips from Playa Blanca include the volcano cones of Timanfaya National Park, artist Cesar Manrique's Jameos del Agua and the Cesar Manrique Foundation and the nearby Rancho Texas, as well as camel treks. You could also hop aboard a boat in Playa Blanca and see the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura.
Flights from the UK to Arrecife Airport (ACE) in Lanzarote take around four hours. It's a relatively small island and you can be unpacking your sunshine togs and beginning Playa Blanca holidays in a little more than 30 minutes after leaving the arrivals terminal.
