Holiday Villas Playa Blanca 2016 | Villa Plus

Holiday Villas in the Resort of Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca now stretches along 5 miles of uninterrupted coastal walkway from Las Coloradas as far as the Faro de Pechiguera lighthouse. The whole coast is developed, but is all about low-rise bungalow and villa developments rather than intrusive and inappropriate urban sprawl. A 6 mile wide bay divides into 3 smaller bays with sheltered beaches that are perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Of the three, the most central is Playa Blanca itself. From here, walk west to the quieter Playa Flamingo, where locals fish for octopus and barracuda, or east to Playa Dorada, great for water sports. The new Marina Rubicona sea-front development is typical of the quietly sophisticated style of the resort – a cluster of upmarket restaurants, holiday souvenir shops and designer boutiques have been created next to a stylish Marina where luxury yachts are berthed. Of course, Playa Blanca still has its bustling port where you catch the ferry to Fuerteventura.

Exploring Playa Blanca On Villa Holidays
Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca is too new to have many historic buildings – but it does have one! This is the 18th century Castillo de las Coloradas, also known as Torre del Águila, which you will see to the east of the Marina Rubicon. It looks a bit like a British Martello Tower and its job was to defend the island from attack by pirates. When Jean de Bethencourt arrived to conquer the Canary Islands in 1402, this is the spot where he chose to set up shop, so clearly it works strategically.

The volcanic nature of Lanzarote can produce some dramatic effects, and if you drive just 15 minutes away from your villa at Playa Blanca, you will see one of these in action at Los Hervideros – the boiling pots. Cesar Manrique designed marvellous walkways to enable us to get the full impact of these natural blowholes in the cliffs that have been created by the sheer power of the waves– they are pretty impressive.

Playa Blanca does not go for wild night life, it is more about gentle jazz and interesting cocktails at the marina, or mixing with the locals in a little bar. But there are places to go if you want a bit more action – there are a few disco bars at the Centro Commercial Papagayo shopping centre that stay open till 6 a.m., and there is also a branch of Ibiza’s famous Cafe del Mar at the marina. There are bars with live music and karaoke – try the Punto Limones area next to the ferry port.

There are more villas like yours than hotels here so there is an extensive restaurant scene to cater for all the people who did not come on holiday to cook. The seafront is crammed with just about every nationality and style of restaurant you can think of so you will have no problem finding something you love. The marina is also packed with good restaurants.

The best place to shop for classy holiday souvenirs is Rubicon Marina. There you will find a number of designer label boutiques, but the artisan markets held at the marina on Wednesdays and Sundays are great for locally made jewellery using the island’s gemstone, peridot, or for gifts like pottery and embroidered tablecloths.

There are all kinds of sporting activities on offer in this resort, such as ten pin bowling at the Rubimar Centre in the marina. You can play tennis at the Iberostar hotel, or hire a bike at the Commercial Centre. There is a 9-hole Pitch and Putt golf course on the seafront, and quad and buggy tours are also available. You can take a Deep Sea Fishing excursion on the Blue Delfin Uno that leaves from the old harbour in Playa Blanca, and there are a whole host of water sports for you to try at the Playa Dorada.

You can chose between two water parks in Playa Bianca. Aqualava Water Park covers 70,000 square meters and offers the slow river ride, wave pool, children’s water castles, giant slides, space bowl, fast slides, ramps and slides for tots as well as a miniclub with interactive games, and plenty of shady gardens and eating options. The Paradise Island Hotel offers a dinosaur-themed waterpark, which has multi-lane slides and an activity pool for younger children.
