Guide to Playa Blanca Self Catering Holidays

Playa Blanca is the most southerly resort of the island. Originally a fishing village, it is the most recent resort being developed and is fast becoming the third largest resort on the island. In comparison to Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca is quieter and more tranquil.

The coastline at Playa Blanca is a massive 9km long bay which is broken up into three large bays. This geographical make-up means that the beaches are sheltered and ideal for swimming and snorkelling. Inside the resort, taking a walk along the promenade can’t be missed, as it links both halves of the resort. You can take in most of the sea front as well as having lovely ocean views across the Bocaina Straits to Fuerteventura.

Playa Blanca has its own volcano - Montaña Roja (the red mountain) which is right on the doorstep. It takes about half an hour to climb and affords great views of the resort and inside the crater.

Shopping in the resort is pleasurable. All the usual tourist shops that you would expect are present in the centre and along the beach. For more upmarket shopping, the new Marina Rubicon is becoming the place to go.

Restaurants are plentiful and offer a variety of cuisine, including many international restaurants, and English as well as traditional Canarian.

Nightlife centres around the restaurants and bars in Playa Blanca. For a livelier night out and all-night partying, you will need to go to Puerto del Carmen or Costa Teguise. Many of these can be found on the beach promenade overlooking the beach and out towards Fuerteventura. There are also a number of good places opening up in the marina.

A golf course is being built, and the recently opened Sport Marina Rubicon has made Playa Blanca a more upmarket resort. There is discussion about making the harbour bigger, to accommodate cruise liners such as the QE2 which visited last year, but had to moor off the coast.
