Playa Blanca is a resort found on the southern tip of Lanzarote. In recent years, Playa Blanca has become an exclusive attraction for families and couples seeking a 'quieter' holiday, in comparison to the more livelier resort of Puerte Del Carmen, which is around 45K away. Playa Blanca is generally less windier than the rest of the island, due to it's Southern location of the island.

Get out

Surrounding Playa Blanca is the Timanfiya National Park

It is also possible to catch a ferry to the neighbouring Island of Feutreventura, the trip taking around 1/2 hour.

This article is an outline and needs more content. It has a template, but there is not enough information present. Please plunge forward and help it grow!




There are two ferries. Fred Olsen is the quickest but more expensive. Armas is cheaper, and though I haven't used it. I suspect may be the more pleasant voyage. Certainly not worth taking a hire car over for a day on Fred.

Coaches run to all the main tourist attractions from Playa Balnca. There is a newly completed Bus Sation. To see the Timanfaya it is best to take a bus as cars are not allowed in some areas.

The Yaiza Princess Hotel has an excellent children's play area and you dont need to be resident to use it. It also has fantastic restaurants.
