Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, Spain

The Basics

White-sand beaches are Playa Blanca’s main draw, and you can visit them on a day trip from neighboring Fuerteventura, along with other island attractions such as Montañas del Fuego (Fire Mountains), Ruta de los Volcanes (Route of the Volcanoes), and the vineyard Bodega La Geria.

Playa Blanca also serves as a base to explore the surrounding region, with day trips departing for the rolling sand dunes and volcanic landscapes of Fuerteventura just a short boat ride away. Timanfaya National Park, Salinas de Janubio (Janubio salt flats), and El Golfo Lagoon all lie within a few minutes of Playa Blanca.
