Apartments in Playa Blanca -- Budget Holiday Rentals
Over the past ten years, Playa Blanca has evolved into a hub of activity for tourists, including an array of stunning beaches and a collection of great things to do. Its glitzy vibe is emanated in the high-end restaurants and designer stores that dot the resort, but there's also a hit of culture around the local church and the spot where the old fishing village used to sit. Playa Blanca was made for the sun-seeking tourist, though, with its beaches boasting lush golden sands and shallow waters that seem to glisten on endlessly. If you're after a little art, there's a craft market that takes place at the upmarket Marina Rubicon on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Even if you're not on the hunt for a piece of art, this area is a fine place to grab a coffee and tuck into something special to eat. Our Playa Blanca apartments fit in effortlessly with the stylish atmosphere of the resort. They're spacious and affordable, and are all within easy walking distance of all the main attractions.

The Four Corners of Playa Blanca
- There are four elements that go into making Playa Blanca the unique destination that it is, and you can explore them all from the comfort of our Playa Blanca apartments.
- The Marina Rubicon forms the central hub of the resort. It's a recent development that has helped the area evolve into an upmarket place that draws in visitors time and time again. Situated to the east of the resort, it's filled with high quality restaurants serving cuisine from all over the world, designer shops, and a collection of incredible luxury yachts to admire. It's a great place to take an afternoon stroll and watch the sunset with a cocktail in hand.
- For a little dose of history and culture there's the Castillo de las Colorades, an 18th century castle that's sat just to the side of the Marina Rubicon. The tower was first built to protect the island from pirate attacks in the 1700s, but it now acts as a portal to the past for any visitors interested in learning more about the history of the resort.
- Then there are the beaches, the focal point of the resort. There are a collection of beaches that each boast their own characteristics, from small bays and coves that harbour a quiet energy, to wide, sprawling stretches of sand that are lined with delicious restaurants and home to numerous water sports opportunities.
- Finally, there's the upbeat nightlife that brings the resort to life after dark. Though it's not as raucous as many of the other resorts on the island, Playa Blanca is still a great contender. There are plenty of stylish cocktail bars, karaoke bars, and clubs that open their doors at the weekend. Whatever you're looking for, there's a place made for you where you can while away the small hours of the morning. Many of the bars and clubs are open until 6am, particularly in the centre, so prepare yourself for the long-haul.
Playa Blanca Accommodation
- Playa Blanca accommodation has a bit of everything. There are high-rise hotels that overlook the beaches with their own pools and set of activities. In addition, there are numerous studio blocks dotted around town that are within minutes of the beach, and several authentic guesthouses that offer a more cultural experience. As well as these, there are a couple of hostels that cater to the budget traveller, and a large selection of affordable apartments that allow you the chance to make your trip unique to your wants and needs.
Getting into Playa Blanca
- Playa Blanca is situated really close to Lanzarote's capital, Arrecife, and its airport, making it really easy to navigate between the two. The best option is to grab a taxi from the airport terminals. The journeys are cheap thanks to the short distance, and you'll be able to soak up the awesome views along the way.
- Alternatively, you can get the bus from the airport, which travels to Playa Blanca and a number of other seaside resorts. The service runs throughout the day and is the cheapest way to get to the resort.
