What could be more peaceful than soaking in the gorgeous sunshine whilst you admire stunning views? If you want a slice of paradise in the Canaries, visit the beautiful southern coastal resort of Playa Blanca in Lanzarote. You'll love the exciting activities and pristine sandy beaches that are on offer - all you need to add is a refreshing beer or glass of sangria and your Playa Blanca holiday is complete!
Sun-seekers will adore the blissful mid-twenties summer temperatures, and with little variation during the later months, Playa Blanca is an ideal winter sun destination too. There's a whole range of activities and watersports to get involved in on your holiday - take your pick from the banana boats, sea kayaks and pedal boats at the larger beaches, including Playa Blanca from which the resort takes its name. Or, why not slip into a wetsuit and go scuba diving! You'll have a brilliant time exploring the sea regardless of whether you're a beginner or expert, although if you'd prefer to stay above the waves, adventure junkies will love paragliding across the crystal-clear waters.
Should you fancy a break from the beach on your Playa Blanca holiday, grab your camera and visit the beautiful Timanfaya National Park, which is less than half an hour away. You can even enjoy a camel ride across the landscape while you admire the volcanic landscape for a unique experience! Or, visit Rubicon Marina, where you'll find a fantastic selection of boutiques, art galleries, traditional markets - perfect if you'd like to buy unique souvenirs. With everything from local pottery to jewellery made from the island's famous Peridot gemstone, you're certain to be inspired.
Unwind in the evening and stroll through Playa Blanca's promenade before stopping for something to eat at one of the outstanding local restaurants. You'll also find an array of lively bars and cafes at the marina. Before you call it a night, why not visit one of the terrace bars for a cheeky cocktail and admire the spectacular sea views. Nightlife is more low-key compared to many other Lanzarote resorts, making it ideal for young families and couples. However, if you do fancy letting your hair down, you can visit the clubs in Costa Teguise or Puerto Del Carmen where the dancing goes on into the early hours!
