Until relatively recently, Playa Blanca was a small fishing village on the southern tip of Lanzarote. Whilst its port was always popular, the resort was a late bloomer in the realm of tourism; especially in comparison to its popular neighbours Puerto del Carmen and Costa Teguise. But the bustling port and stunning beach ensured that its beauty wouldn’t remain secret forever, and it has seen a lot of well planned development in recent years. The benefit of this delayed growth is the fact that Playa Blanca has avoided some of the mistakes made by other resorts in the Canary Islands. Investments in the infrastructure and sympathetic development of the resort have ensured it has retained its beauty and character.
Why Holiday in Playa Blanca?
This is one of the many reasons that holidays to Playa Blanca are incredibly popular with UK holidaymakers, in addition to the reasonable four hour flight time.

You’ll struggle to resist the temptation to escape the cold and snow with a last minute holiday to Playa Blanca. And why should you? Even in January the temperature will only drop as low as 20 degrees. As Lanzarote is located closer to the African mainland than the other Canary Islands, its high daytime temperatures are more moderate and suited to UK visitors.
