Playa Blanca is situated at the southern tip of Lanzarote. The town has grown from the original fishing village with the development of quality shops, restaurants and bars including the newly opened Rubicon Marina. Local fishermen still land their catches in the harbour from where regular ferries also run to Fuertaventura.
Our bungalow is on the small private estate of Casas del Sol which was one of the earlier developments in Playa Blanca. This means that compared to some of the more recently built properties, it is conveniently located within a short walk of the town, port and beaches. Due to its location, it is quite possible to enjoy a holiday in Casas del Sol without a car as all the amenities of Playa Blanca are an easy, short walk. There is however a large car park for visitors who wish to hire a car to explore further afield.
Playa Blanca is more suited to relaxing holidays although many watersports, including scuba diving are available locally and boat trips run from the harbour to the nearby Papagayo Beach which is said to be the best in the Canaries.
