Sunset – Playa Blanca, Lanzarote

Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca is the newest resort on Lanzarote and the most upmarket on the island. The town consists mainly of high quality hotels and private villa accommodation. There are two town beaches, but less than 5KM from the town centre you’ll find the famous Papaygayo beaches, which are the best on the island. Also in Playa Blanca, you’ll find the world class Marina Rubicon, which has a huge shopping area with restaurants and bars. Playa Blanca is also a short ferry hop from the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura.

Walkers will be excited by the challenge of the Montana Roja which is just a short distance from the town centre, whilst surfer and divers will be delighted with the offers here. There is much more information at


Wax Bar

It did not take long for me to choose Wax Bar as my “local”. A great sports bar that transforms into a music bar.

Spotlessly clean with professional staff and free hi-speed wifi. It’s in the C.C. Papagayo with sea views and just 100 meters out of the town centre before you get to the Hotel Yaiza and Sun Park Living.

They have a website, Facebook page and even a twitter account. #Recommended
