A Brief History of Playa Blanca

Until quite recently, Playa Blanca was a quiet fishing village somewhat sidelined at the bottom of Lanzarote. The fact that there is a bustling port where you catch the ferry over to Fuerteventura meant it has always been a popular place, but in serious need of development.

As Playa Blanca is the fastest growing tourist resort on Lanzarote, considerable work has taken place here over the last 10 years. With these changes completed, it is a more tranquil place and more tourists are therefore wanting to visit.

Whether you are ready for a relaxing holiday by the swimming pool or would like to explore the town and other surrounding areas, Playa Blanca is rich in culture and history, with an endless stretching coastline and some of the whitest beaches on the island.
