Playa Blanca is located on the south of the island and still retains the atmosphere of a once small fishing village.
This flourishing but tranquil resort is ideal for family and for people looking for relaxation: with its beach borderlined by picturesque restaurants and a shop lined promenade, it is always almost basked in warm sunshine and offers superb views of the mountains and the islands of Los Lobos and Fuerteventura.
The resort has a stunning new marina, with a host of waterfront cafes, restaurants and upmarket shops. A weekly market is held there. Within a short drive are the magnificent Papagayo beaches, considered by many the most beautiful in Spain.
From the harbour at Playa Blanca, ferries cross several times a day to Fuerteventura, only a 20 minute sail away.
