Casita Tranquila - Holiday Home Lanzarote

Playa Blanca Information

A great place for couples - if you have never visited Playa Blanca before don't be surprised to find yourself falling in love with the place! The relaxed pace of life and stunning scenery make you forget all about the hustle and bustle of routine. An ideal resort for recharging your batteries!

Once a small fishing village on the most southerly tip of Lanzarote, Playa Blanca is now the Island's third resort. Despite being a newly developed resort, every effort has been made to match the traditional with the modern and it has been a great success.

From the dominating summit of Montana Rosa (Red Mountain) which can be accessed quite easily, there are stunning views over the coastline.
Playa Blanca boasts a scenic promenade offering leisurely strolls from Punta Pechiguera (the lighthouse) at the extreme southern end of the island to the Marina and beyond.

The Marina Rubicon is an up-and-coming area of the resort where you can shop at designer outlets, dine alfresco at the boardwalk eateries or sip a cocktail whilst admiring the yachts.

Between the Marina and Playa Dorada you'll find Playa Blanca's 9 hole golf course. There is an 18 hole course 30 mins drive away in Tias

There are numerous bars and restaurants lining Playa Blanca's water-front where every kind of cuisine can be sampled, from Spanish to Oriental to the good-old traditional British. Some of our favourites are El Volcan de Timanfaya and Los Hervideros for something special, Great World or Asia for Chinese and for tapas, La Esquina.
For those who need to keep communication lines open whilst on holiday, many of these local bars offer internet access either by using their computers or by WIFI (wireless connection) if you have a laptop.

Playa Flamingo, a safe bathing area for all the family, is just across the road, you can literally be on the beach within a few minute's walk from the bungalow. A small, blue flag beach can also be found in the centre of town. A further 10 min stroll will take you to the large golden crest of Playa Dorada where there are watersports on offer in abundance.

The nearby fine white beaches of Papagayo are washed by crystal clear waters. These are among the best in the Canaries and indeed all of Spain. There is a water taxi service to these beaches from the harbour. You can also take a trip to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura on one of the ferries which sail regularly from Playa Blanca Harbour, a crossing which only takes some 30 - 40 minutes. Why not try a sea-fishing excursion from here, too?

If your sea legs aren't too good you can explore the resort using the Playa Blanca bus service (no. 30). This runs from Pechiguera (the lighthouse) all along the length of the resort to beyond the Marina Rubicon and the beach at Las Coloradas. The fare of 1.40 euro (Jan 15) per person will take you either one stop or the entire journey.
