Make a holiday villa in Playa Blanca your home away from home

Playa Blanca villas and apartments are in a great family resort on the south coast of Lanzarote. There are three fabulous beaches in the area, and Papagayo, one of the best in the Canary Islands, is just a few minutes away by car. It’s a fantastic location for watersports, while on land the strange and beautiful volcanic landscapes of Timanfaya are an easy car trip to the north.

Playa Blanca villas are found in one of the island’s newest resorts, so all accommodation here is modern and planned with the needs of today’s families in mind. This gives rise to a host of welcome luxuries like on-site pools and gardens that afford plenty of space and privacy. Most rentals provide room for at least four guests, while interiors are full of useful features like satellite TV and internet access, as well as fully-equipped kitchens and bathrooms.

Things to do

-Beaches: Playa Blanca has three main beaches, varying in size and character. Directly on the resort’s waterfront is a relatively unfrequented little bay with a mixture of sand and rocks. West of Playa Blanca is Playa Flamingo, which is a little further from the beaten track but is still complemented by an array of shops and services. The busiest local beach is Playa Dorada, just to the east of the resort and offering all kinds of water-based activities and fun.

-Nature: Lanzarote’s scenery is distinctive thanks to intense volcanic activity that culminated in a number of large eruptions in the 18th century. The Timanfaya National Park, just to the north of Playa Blanca, is the place to see some of the stunning landforms created in recent centuries. There are volcanic cones, vents, lava tubes and a remarkable geyser, which shoots jets of steam several metres into the air.

-Watersports: The moderate water temperatures and advantageous winds combine to make Lanzarote one of the top watersports destinations in Europe. The west coast is particularly good for surfing—Caleta de Famara is one of the hotspots, with unbelievable natural scenery and several surf schools to help newcomers find their feet. HomeAway has a choice of accommodation in Caleta de Famara, too.

-Diving: Lanzarote is also a prime location for underwater explorers. The more sheltered east coast is the place to be, and there are dive centres located at all the major resorts, including Playa Blanca. The water temperatures ensure a long diving season, and there’s so much to see beneath the waves, including shipwrecks, reefs bustling with marine life and majestic underwater caves created by volcanic eruptions.

-Outdoor recreation: For those who want to stretch their legs on terra firma, there are a number of local options. Montana Roja is an extinct volcano that overlooks Playa Blanca. It’s possible to hike up to the summit for wonderful views of the resort. Castillo de Coloradas is an historic watchtower between Playa Blanca and Papagayo, and is well worth the short walk.

Weather in Playa Blanca

Lanzarote is not too far off the coast of Morocco, and the weather here is subtropical. Temperatures around holiday villas in Playa Blanca remain steady for every month of the year, with daily maximums hovering between 21 and 25?C. There’s plenty of sunshine all year round, although the winter period can be quite damp. December, which is also the coolest month of the year, is known to get a few days of rain. The warmest weather is between June and September, but conditions are rarely oppressively hot.

Travel to Playa Blanca

There are regular flights from a number of UK airports to Lanzarote (ACE). Most of the these routes will be with charter airlines or low-fares carriers. A hire car would be useful for most holidaymakers staying at holiday rentals in Playa Blanca. As Lanzarote is quite a small island, few places here should take more than an hour to get to. The journey from the airport to Playa Blanca could hardly be more straightforward—it’s a half-hour drive on the LZ-2 and then the LZ-702 just before Uga.

Who by the way was very responsive with contact beforehand, answering all my queries promptly and with a friendly manner. If you're looking for a beautiful, clean, spacious, quiet, home with all you need for a delicious holiday get this villa. It is even lovelier than described, we stayed for two weeks end of January. Weather was mostly kind quite hot bikinis/shorts needed but do the jumpers for evening.We made good use of the outside courtyard, BBQ,and sunloungers. When it did get too warm the pool is a great addition, my husband used it nearly every day, but as it's unheated I unbravely used it less so, but got into a heavenly position sunning on a towel by the side swishing feet/hands in too cool off!! Inside is cool,calm, impeccably clean and a lovely space to loll around in, plenty big enough to not feel on top of one other. Oh, and the beds were so comfy, linen changed half way through our holiday. (And pool cleaned by nice man). The kitchen has all you need, ditto the lounge/diner.We spent our days at near by papayago beaches, very few people around, gorgeous sand, heaven xxx. In​ the evenings Playa Blanca takes fifteen mins by foot, or a few by car, taxis less than four euros each way. There are several good restaurants in which to eat and we were treated very well. We used the Lonely Planet and TripAdvisor for ideas, plus intuition! The villa is nestled on a plot of similar buildings many half built and empty, but as we had read the reviews before leaving it wasn't a surprise and indeed the island has many half finished buildings, and becomes normal, and for us a bonus as there were less people/noise. Trying to remember a negative ummmmm, nope nothing.Do come here,it's ideal. I so want to return please please 😉

The owners were very helpful before our stay and we found the apartment very well equipped and in an ideal location close to the beach and local amenities but nice and quiet. There is ample room for a couple, the kitchen is small but we managed to cook some nice meals with fresh fish bought from the harbour and veg and salad from a green grocers in town. Local supermarkets less than five minutes walk away sell freshly baked bread and croissants together with a wide range of ham and cheese so we enjoyed some lovely breakfasts sitting on the terrace which was sunny all day. There are also a wide range of restaurants within easy walking distance, most of which were very good. Clothes washing facilities in the apartment were very good, so we know next time not to bring so many clothes! All in all a lovely homely place!
