Playa Blanca-Things to do on Holiday in Lanzarote

There are three beaches in Playa Blanca apart from the more secluded Papagayo beaches, probably the best in the Canary islands, which are either accessible by water taxi from the Harbour or by car over bumpy tracks. The largest and probably most popular is Playa Dorada situated almost in the centre of the resort by the Yaiza Hotel.It is quite a large beach with sunbeds parasols for hire. There are banana boats and pedaloes for hire and plenty of facilities for refreshments etc right on the sea front. There is a commercial centre with Burger King , Pizza restaurants, Scuba , electrical stores etc. Playa Flamingo Beach is better suited for families with younger children as the beach is protected by breakwaters so the water is quite shallow and calm most of the time.The actual Playa Blanca after which the town was named is only a smallish beach but it is easily accessible and close to all facilities. There is a submarine that does trips from Marina Rubicon as well as Catamaran trips. . There is a pitch and putt golf course adjacent to the Hesperida hotel right on the front. Marina Rubicon has plenty of designer shops and there are pleasant restaurants overlooking the sea. There are many bars in Playa Blanca and they do vary in terms of service and price so keep an eye out for good value and service. Sea fishing is excellent as is scuba diving in this area. The ferry goes to Fuerteventura from the harbour and is worth a good day out although the tickets costs arent cheap . You can walk up the Montana Roja in about 30 minutes to give excellent views of the whole resort and across the sea to Fuerteventura
