A Week in Playa Blanca

This is a guest post from Paul Corbett…..

Located at the southern tip of Lanzarote, Playa Blanca is the up and coming resort on the island and was our destination for a recent week long break.

Chosen for it’s relatively quietness in comparison to the more lively resort of Puerto del Carmen and the wind surfer paradise of Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca proved a tranquil relaxed base for our holiday.

Following the 30 minute drive from the airport we settled into Marina View 2, a three bedroom villa just a five minute walk from the Marina Rubicon, before setting out to explore the town.

Playa Blanca Town

Playa Blanca At the west end of the resort is the town which is split over two levels, the top comprising of convenience stores, souvenir shops and banks and the lower level hosting the many restaurants of Playa Blanca, all with stunning views over the ocean.

Two stand out eateries are Spices Indian restaurant and the cafe Yum Yums.

Spices serve a selection of excellent Indian dishes and between six of us over two nights we tried a dozen dishes all that didn’t disappoint.  read more »

We receive a lot of press releases here at Lanzarote Information. It’s not our style to simply post them out in their entirety – we normally use the information contained in them to create our own story and one which is relevant to Lanzarote.

But this was an interesting and unusual one, and I felt it was worthwhile publishing it as it came to me:

London olympic Rings

April was a terrible sales period for many in the travel industry due to a combination of the recession, Easter and the Royal Wedding. May has been marginally better for sales with encouraging signs that consumers are booking holidays again.

Recent research by Arena Media (the Havas-owned media planning and buying group) has also identified the Olympic Games ticket ballot as having a significant impact on major purchases such as holidays.  read more »
