Playa Blanca - Lanzarote Playa Blanca On the south west corner of Lanzarote, approximately 35 minutes drive from the airport, Playa Blanca still retains the atmosphere of a once small fishing community despite the changes resulting from a thriving tourist industry. Over the years, controlled development has increased the number of high standard bungalow complexes, private villas with pools and apartments enabling holidaymakers to enjoy the now flourishing but tranquil resort with its beach borderlined by picturesque restaurants and a shop lined promenade. Within a short drive to the east are the magnificent Papagayo beaches, now given National Park status. Composed of several small bays and coves, many consider these golden sands to be the most beautiful in Spain. A 15km stretch of water at the southern most tip of Playa Blanca separates the islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura which has become a busy sea lane. Several ferries use the port at Playa Blanca for the daily crossing to Corralejo on the North of Fuerteventura. The journey takes only forty minutes and many visitors make use of the pleasant trip to experience a second Canary Island during their holiday.
