Why We Love Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca goes hand-in-hand with relaxation and beach-front adventures, with a whole host of new experiences just moments from your holiday villa. Get set for delicious local delicacies, wide golden sands and unusual lunar landscapes in this Lanzarote hideaway. To help you make the most of your visit, our Xplore Expert Maureen has outlined a sample 3-day itinerary for you to enjoy.

Formerly a coastal fishing village, Playa Blanca stays true to its roots with its pretty waterside restaurants and quaint old-world harbour. It’s a place favoured by families and couples looking for a relaxing holiday and offers plenty of opportunities for the adventure seeker within, with fantastic surfing and scuba diving right on your doorstep. So whether it’s for sightseeing, golf, sailing or pure indulgent relaxation on some of best beaches on the island, our villas are the perfect base for your holiday.

DAY 01

Island Views

Head for the hills

Jump straight into adventure and climb the 479m high 'Mirador Del Rio' for outstanding island views on your first day in Lanzarote. Next, head underground to investigate the jaw-dropping 'Cuevas De Las Verde' - a spectacular network of underground grottoes, and one of the longest volcanic galleries in the world.

DAY 02

Market Tour

Meet the locals

Don't miss the Teguise Market Tour during your stay in Lanzarote. The bartering, bargains & beautiful buildings are the perfect place to absorb some local culture, and navigating the hundreds of unique stalls is a fascinating experience. Round off your day with an open-air BBQ, alongside a backdrop of stunning mountain and ocean vistas, back at your villa.

DAY 03

Scuba Lessons

Beneath the waves

Head for the beach, and dive straight in to memorable scuba diving lessons in the heart of Playa Blanca. Submerge yourself and discover the incredible underwater wildlife that Lanzarote has to offer. Spend the rest of the day lazing on the golden sands and taking in the stunning volcanic landscapes, frosted drink in hand.
