Situated in Yaiza the southern-most municipality on the island, is Playa Blanca, once a fishing village and today a tourist centre with a recreational port. Its coast is made up of a series of beautiful beaches.

Playa Blanca, we can take the boat to Fuerteventura, which comes in half an hour, and so multiply our chances of holidays in Lanzarote.

Beaches PapagayoPAPAGAYO BEACH
This series of wild beaches of fine white sand produce a sensation of shimmering brightness that can be found around Punta de Papagayo in the extreme south of the island. At the edge of a volcanic ash covered landscape, the silence seizes this jagged and inhospitable coast.
These beaches are considered the best in Lanzarote.
There is a €3 entry fee, and vehicles must be left in the supervised parking area next to the beach.
