Playa Blanca Holidays

The quiet holiday resort of Playa Blanca is situated in the very south of the island and is named after the surrounding white sandy beaches. The resort has undergone a lot of construction and upgrading in the last few years, which, contrary to expectation hasn't ruined the Spanish charm of this resort but rather added to it by giving tourists an extensive array of villas holiday accommodation to choose from in Playa Blanca. Despite the extensive growth over the last few years the old fishing village, in the centre, retains its charm and has escaped much of the commercialism that has blighted larger resorts. There is a good selection of cafés, bars and restaurants in Playa Blanca along the promenade but the main attractions are the nearby beaches; some of the best beaches in the Canary Islands are just four miles (six km) away at Papagayo. The resort is mainly geared for families and couples - those wanting a more lively nightlife will need to make the 18-mile (29km) journey to Puerto del Carmen.

If sand and sun is what you are after, then Fuerteventura, second largest island in the Canaries archipelago (but the most sparsely populated) is the place to go. Its whitewashed capital, Puerto del Rosario, is known as the place where goats outnumber its citizens by a long chalk. Other than that however there is not much to the place except for very bleak buildings, which only the most curious visitor may find interesting. What one will find when taking the ferry to Fuerteventura from Lanzarote, is a good beach. Giniginamar is a peaceful spot with black sand fringed by elegant palm trees. There is also a long stretch of golden sand at the mouth of the Juan Gomez ravine on the Jandia peninsula. La Pared in the south has a black pebbly beach with rough seas, and there is the secluded, scenic Ajuy beach near the fishing village of the same name. One can still explore Fuerteventura and find stretches of virgin sand, even in the height of summer. The name, Fuerteventura, most likely derived from the amalgamation of fuerte (strong) and viento (wind), describing the strong off-shore winds that offer cooling breezes for the sun-worshippers.
