Quite new to Lanzarote, is the quiet beach and marina of Playa Blanca, where you can enjoy a very relaxed outing with some incredible sights. It’s a very peaceful and tranquil area, so perhaps if you’re going on a nice relaxing couple break, this would be the ideal spot for you and your partner. As Playa Blanca is fairly new, there’s not all that much going on there just yet, but that doesn’t take away from the luxurious ocean views and perfect tranquility. It’s more of a location to relax and enjoy the peace. You could go for a nice scenic walk along the promenade or visit one of the spectacular beach areas which are perfect for relaxing in the sun and taking a quick dip in the sea.
Notorious for its stunning beaches, Costa Teguise is an incredibly popular resort along the East coast of Lanzarote. It’s arguably the most picturesque place in Lanzarote, famous for its tranquility and many beach areas for visitors to enjoy. Oh, and you’ll never be short of things to do in Costa Teguise. It’s an activity filled resort with so many different things to do, including water sports, visiting the local aquarium, spending a day in the waterpark, and enjoying the many restaurants and shops there. So, this is why the area receives so many visitors each year and is so popular among tourists.
Arrecife is the capital of Lanzarote, and so it’s a very commonly visited destination by tourists. Like Costa Teguise, Arrecife lies on the East coast of Lanzarote, and is one of the more cultural places on the island. Not only this, it’s also one of the most picturesque spots on the island with its stunning harbour, very own beaches, and perfect views of the tranquil, blue sea.
