Introducing Playa Blanca
If you are looking for sand between the toes rather than a rollicking nightlife, Playa Blanca is not a bad choice. Despite the presence of an American fast-food chain at the beach, it is a quiet resort that has not yet spiralled completely out of control. That said, you’re better off crossing the ocean to Corralejo on Fuerteventura, where the beaches and dunes easily outclass Playa Blanca’s. The best beaches here are at Punta del Papagayo to the east, which are pretty and relatively isolated. Check out also the new swanky port, Marina Rubicón, to the west of the town centre, which must have emptied the municipal piggy bank.
