Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca is situated at the southernmost tip of the island of Lanzarote, and seems to have its own unique weather, away from the rest of island. The bars and restaurants in Playa Blanca are varied and plentiful. 

Flanked by the Femes mountains on one side… and with Montana Roja imposing at the other side, it is sheltered from some of the higher winds, and also claims the highest temperatures on the island. Bars and restaurants in Playa Blanca are mainly concentrated around the centre of town – but there are many other gems just a short distance out amongst the other areas such as Faro Park, La Mulata and Los Coloradas.

The bars in Playa Blanca are a little quieter than Puerto del Carmen – but certainly not lacking. With the focus mainly on family entertainment, you don’t have to go far to hear live singers, or to have a warble on the karaoke. With beautiful white sandy beaches framing the town, edging round to Papagayo (a series of coves with shallow clear waters), it’s also an ideal place to bring the children, and feel safe as they paddle about in the shallow waters.

With all the variety of tourist shops that you would expect, there are also many bars offering low-key entertainment throughout the evening. It’s a little quieter than other resorts in Lanzarote, which suits the visitor seeking a more laid back holiday experience.

The most recent development is the Marina Rubicon. A development of designer shops, and restaurants in beautiful surroundings, positioned right next to the beautiful Marina . Why not take a stroll, and see some of the most spectacular yachts in the Canary Islands.

The promenade in Playa Blanca is host to many top quality cafes and restaurants, where you can sit back and sample either the local or international menu on offer. This is why it is wirth visiting to see what places to eat in Playa Blanca are available. The view across to Fuerteventura is beautiful, and at night you can see Corralejo’s lights twinkling back at you, whilst listening to the waves lapping at the shore.

In addition to the bars and restaurants in the Rubicon Marina, and the many excellent places to eat in Playa Blanca town centre, there are a couple of great commercial centres. Punta Limones has a good selection of karaoke bars, a traditional Irish pub, as well as a late night disco, and a number of shops. CC Papagayo has a great selection of bars, guaranteed to keep you entertained throughout the night. Faro Park has a stretch of shops, bars, and a couple of restaurants & cafes with a more homely feel… and is very popular with the local British and Irish residents.

Just up the mountain from Playa Blanca is the tiny village of Femés. There are 3 restaurants in the town – 2 of which have breathtaking views down to Playa Blanca. Aim to arrive for sunset, but expect a queue as these places fill up fast.
