Playa Blanca is located in the south of the island of Lanzarote. It is the third most important tourist area of the island. It belongs to the district of Yaiza and in recent decades has experienced a boom in the tourism sector that has made it a remarkable point and of great interest to those who visit the island.
A small sandy beach with crystal clear blue water located in the heart of the town gives its name to the area. With its marked fishing tradition, the town of Playa Blanca has gone from being an almost non-existent place to become a point of interest not only for tourism but also cultural, with its port allowing maritime connection to the neighboring island of Fuerteventura.
The paradisiacal beaches of Papagayo, where the first documented conquerors entered, continue to maintain its air of mystery as they are located within the Ajaches Natural Monument with almost two kilometers where you will find several beach coves of golden sand and turquoise waters.
Playa Blanca has an extensive seaside avenue that borders almost all its coastline and will allow you to enjoy walking along from the Coloradas area towards the Pechiguera Lighthouse, where you can enjoy unforgettable sunsets.
From Playa Blanca it is easy to move around and visit the island by car. You will find the Timanfaya National Park just 20 minutes away, within which are the Fire Mountains, one of the most important enclave of the island that should not be missed during your visit as well as the coastal area of Los Hervideros - El Golfo.
The island has 9 official Tourist Centers and on its website cactlanzarote.com you can find all the information you need.
We also recommend a visit to the César Manrique Foundation where you can learn a lot about this local artist whose architectural and sculptural works are visible throughout the island of Lanzarote.

Very clean and well presented
The location is very good, on the bus route and only one stop away from the bus station. The area is quiet as the residential complex does not have the usual facilities found in holiday areas. There are no swimming pools, restaurants or children’s play areas. The only drawback is there is no private terrace to sit in the sun, only a walkway which other residents use to access their homes. However, it is only a ten minute walk to the Playa Dorada beach and the Paseo Maritimo. Turn left for the Rubicon Marina - another 10 minutes, or right for the centre of Playa Blanca and the harbour. Everything is very close by, without being on top of you. The letting agents are very responsive and happy to assist. Whilst it didn’t worry us at all, there is a small mosque next door. It has no windows so doors are left open and the nightly prayer meeting can be heard in the bedroom. Often the noise went on until after 10pm.
Okay but not more
We (two women aged 29&30) stayed in the appartment for one week. Quick recap of our experience:
-muslim house of prayer right next to the apartment and right next to one of the bedrooms. A group of men came over several times per day to pray (very loud - especially on a friday night).
-the flat has thin walls and during our time there was a family in the flat above us. We recommend to take ear plugs with you because you can hear every step and follow the conversation.
-the next small supermarket can be reached within 6 minutes walking distance (on the way to the beach, which is another 5 minutes to walk)
-many restaurants are along the beach and in the second row and along the main road. We didnt try fancy ones, spent around 40 Euros for dinner for main course and drinks. The food was, however, never better than average.
-the beds in the apartment were good, the bath is modern but has no window. It is a pity that the apartment has no terrace but to be honest since it is in an area full of houses we wouldnt have used it a lot anyway.
- the kitchen equipment is quite simple but in good condition. Very new washing machine and a small dish washer.
-Big parking area in front of the appartment so we never searched for a parking slot.
Thank you for your comment.
We have loved having you with us and we are pleased to read that you liked the property, the location near the beach and restaurants.
Yes, there is a small mosque nearby and we regret that prayers are sometimes heard occasionally during the day and it is also true that it only lasts a couple of minutes at each time during the day.
Thanks again for your comment and visit.
Wohnung gut aber mit kleinen Mängeln und ohne Terasse
Die Ferienwohnung befindet sich im Untergeschoss. Sie ist hell weil durch ein großes Fenster (Schaufenster) viel Licht und die Morgensonne hinein kommt. Das Schaufenster ist sehr lieblos gestaltet, keine Gardiene oder ähnliches. Der Weg in die Ferienanlage führt direkt am Schaufenster vorbei. Es kommen häfig Leute vorbeigelaufen. Die Räume der Wohnung haben teilweise Stockflecken, zu wenig gelüftet.
Aus der Terasse wurde das zweite Schlafzimmer gemacht, Schade eigentlich. Es ist wesentlich kühler (keine Isolierung) als die anderen beiden Räume. Einrichtungsseitig ist alles vorhanden und funktionierte auch. Internet mit 2 Mbit ist auch vorhanden. Es gab durch den Veranstalter keine Übergabe und Einweisung in der Wohnung. Bin mal gespannt, ob ich die Kaution von 150 Euro rückerstattet bekomme! Man bekommt einen Schlüsselcode. Damit wird der Wohnungsschlüssel aus Securebox entnommen und fertig. Schön war, das eine prall gefülte Obstschale (Apfelsinen und Bananen) und ein Flasche Mineralwasser zur Begrüßung bereitgestellt wurde.

Die Wohnung befindet sich im Erdgeschoss und nicht im Keller.
Wir haben keine Beschwerden über die Dekoration der Wohnung erhalten, wir bedauern, dass es Ihnen persönlich nicht gefallen hat.
Wir senden Ihnen alle notwendigen Informationen vor Ihrer Ankunft und wir stellen Fragen im Zweifelsfall. Wir mussten gehen, um zu helfen, die securebox zu öffnen, weil ich nicht wusste oder Code hatte.
Wir haben die Anzahlung vor mehr als einer Woche geschickt, bitte kontaktieren Sie Ihre Bank.
Wir freuen uns, dass Ihnen alles andere gefallen hat.
Danke für deinen Kommentar.
