What's it like? - Playa Blanca
Playa Blanca is a beautiful resort. Once a small fishing village it has grown significantly in recent years but at the same time retained it's natural beauty. The sea front in the town centre has a wonderful promenade with restaurants to suit all taste looking out over the beach and sea towards Fuerteventura. One row back from this is a shopping area (pedestrians only) with lots of duty free shops to find that holiday bargain.
There are three main beaches in Playa Blanca. In the town centre is a small beach popular with the Spanish. To the east of the centre is the bigger Playa Dorada beach and to the west Playa Flamingo. Both these beaches offer water activities from pedalo hire to banana boats. They also have sunlounger and umbrellas for hire.
Further to the east is the new Marina Rubicon. Here can be found an impressive collection of boats as well as boutique shops and restaurants. Twice weekly the market is also held here.
For those looking for nightlife the commercial centre behind Playa Dorada is the busiest, with a good selection of bars and a nightclub open into the early hours.
