The once sleepy fishing village close to the Papagayo beaches was developed during the 80s into a pleasant resort combining the unspoilt qualities of the village with tourism infrastructure.
Recently an 8 km long seafront promenade has been created. It is now possible to walk from one end of the village to the other whilst looking down onto the crystal clear waters and not getting your feet wet.
The village centre has been lovingly restored maintaining its unspoilt character. There is a good choice of differing restaurants, small Spanish bars and shopping facilities. Almost all of the restaurants and bars are situated on the charming seafront promenade where you can sit and gaze over to Fuerteventura. There are however also bars and shops in the harbour.

Around the centre of the village, several landscaped holiday parks and also single properties have been lovingly and tastefully built. It is particularly quiet staying in the village as there is no through traffic – Playa Blanca is effectively “the last stop”, at most you can drive to the Papagayo beaches.
Ferries sail regularly every day from the picturesque harbour to Fuerteventura (from 15 to 30 minutes).
A place for everyone who values proximity to the sea (and a good quality nightlife within walking distance). Playa Blanca is deemed the most beautiful and well kept coastal tourist resort on Lanzerote.
