Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, Canary Islands

Playa Blanca is located on the south of Lanzarote island, the smaller of the two main Canary Islands, located 100 km's from the coast of Africa. Playa Blanca still retains the atmosphere of a once small fishing village. It is a popular but tranquil resort, ideal for family and for people looking for relaxation. Its beach promenade is lined with restaurants and shops, and there are superb views of the mountains and the nearby islands of Lobo and Fuerteventura.

Within a short drive are the magnificent Papagayo beaches, considered by many the most beautiful in Spain. Other places to visit on Lanzarote include the Municipality of Haría, the strange volcanic vineyards of La Geria and an off island trip to La Graciosa Islet and the rest of the Chinijo Archipelago.
