Out & About

Playa Blanca is situated on the south coast of the island and has excellent weather all year round.
The area has a beautiful pedestrianised shopping area as well as many seaside bars, cafes and excellent restaurants serving a mixture of English, Spanish and Italian food. There are also two well stocked convenience stores selling English newspapers, fresh bread, milk and many other daily essentials.

The harbour (where you can catch a ferry to Fuerteventura), is a few minutes drive from the villa, as is the stunning new Rubicon marina. The area also boasts spectacular beaches, in particular the famous Papagayo beach which is within easy reach of the villa.

Faro Park (Faro is the spanish word for Lighthouse), is located In the southwest corner, a short 5
minute drive from the centre of Playa Blanca. Here, the island has been tastefully developed with a
number of four and five star hotels and luxury villas like this. Faro Park has a small number of bars &
restaurants including an Italian Restaurant, Mediterranean Restaurant, a Mini-Market, Bakery / Delicatessen, Gift shop, Café and three bars, two of which serve food.

A bus service operates between Faro Park, Playa Blanca Centre and Las Coloradas (at the far eastern end of Playa Blanca) every half hour between 06.48 and 22.18 and costs 1.15€.
Taxis are also readily available, costing about 5€ between Faro Park and the centre of town.

There is a nice Costal walk not too far from the villa taking in the Lighthouse and rock pools. Montana Roja is close by for the more adventurous.
