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.

It is beautiful and spacious so our family of five never felt on top of each other. The fact every bedroom had their own bathroom was just great for out teenage children. John and Mandy the property managers there were so helpful with recommendations from restaurants to where the best snorkelling could be found. Would thoroughly recommend this villa.

A good 40min walk to town but taxi in an evening €5 not a problem. Well appointed with everything you need and well maintained at the villa, Jose helpful when needed, cleaning twice in 2 weeks was very thorough and appreciated. Fantastic outside area which was fully utilised. Alarm system a bonus for piece of mind. An added security safe would have been a bonus however. Would certainly return and recommend.

Chilling through the day with the advantage of a lovely large heated and very private pool. It's a very homely, spacious villa not being on a new development which added to its charm and has so much outside space we were spoilt for choice for sunbathing ! The villa was very clean when we arrived and was like a home from home with all the amenities we needed. Booking was made simple as I was able to speak to the owner Barbara over the phone reference dates, who by the way was so accommodating that she gave up the last few days of her holiday in June so that we could have the 2 weeks we wanted. 1st class service, thank you Barbara and can't wait to return.
