Playa Blanca Villa Rental

Top 10 Attractions (in my opinion)

I get asked a lot about things to do in Playa Blanca and on the island in general and I must admit there are a lot of things I have yet to do myself but in no particular order I have listed below some of the top 10 attractions I think it is worth while doing while visiting Lanzarote.

Top 10 Attractions

  1. Timanfaya : what Lanzarote is famous for! The volcanoes!
    Take a bus tour or if you have a hire car take a trip out yourself.

  2. Rancho Texas Zoo: highly enjoyable day out for all the family. An animal park and splash zone. Lots of evening entertainment/shows too. Really enjoyable food. Don’t forget your swimming costume!

  3. Aqua Lava Water park; located within Playa Blanca, a 10-minute drive from the villas it would be a shame to miss out on this when it is so close. A handy tip…the park offers tickets for half price after 3 pm. Ideal for families with younger children who may only tolerate a small amount of time there.

  4. Rubicon Marina Market: The market is on twice a week; Wednesdays and Saturday. See the hustle and bustle of traders displaying a variety of items from handmade goods to sunglasses to handbags. Take a few minutes break and enjoy a coffee and cake or something colder in the surrounding cafes and restaurants.

  5. Submarine Safari at Puerto Calero. Explore the underwater world. This is on my list of things to do on my next visit.

  6. Take a trip to the beach! 2 of my favourites are Playa Dorada and Playa Flamingo. Plenty of facilities surrounding the beach. 

  7. Fred Olsen express – take the ferry across to Fuerteventura. Bring your car or go as a foot passenger.  Again this is something on my list of things to do!
  8. Boat trips; there are so many of these available in Playa Blanca. I would suggest taking a trip to the tourist ticket office. There is one located at the Rubicon Marina.

  9. Quadbiking, snorkelling, segways, bike rental – you name it. Playa Blanca has it all. Again I would recommend taking a visit to the tourist ticket office for more information.

  10. Take a trip to Puerto del Carmen: only a short 20 minute drive away. Plenty of evening shows on offer here including a bus ride to and from Playa Blanca. I did this on my last visit and it was thoroughly enjoyable. I booked through

That’s it, 10 of the top things to do while visiting the beautiful island of Lanzarote.  Many I have done myself, but a lot I have not and so many others trips/tours not mentioned above that I have yet to do.
