The sea front at Playa Blanca never fails to satisfy and the good news is it is mostly on the level.

Its quite a small beach especially at high tide its practically not there, overlooked by the shops and bars/restaurants. Playa Dorada Beach just 10 mins walk away if far larger/nicer

A nice walk along the prom, with plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars. Just behind the prom is a precinct of shops.

A typical tourist town, but to our opinion a bit nicer then Puerto del Carmen. Nice walk near the sea with plenty restaurants and shops

We have been to Playa Blanca a few times now, and think it is a great little town. Walk along the main street, or along the promenade by the sea for a good mix of shops, restaurants and bars. Walk a further 20 minutes out...More

Love Playa Blanca for the little restaurants and beaches, and love the Marina. Had some good times here. However, watch your valuables. We have been burgled twice - once in a hotel and once during a stay at apartments.

I would avoid the H10 Lanzarote Princess in summer as all the entertainment is indoors, however, winter time it would probably be just right. I wouldn't call the slope to the beach as "gentle" but it is workable for some one... More

Plenty restaurants will be open. There are bars though depends what you mean by busy. It isn’t a party destination, more folk sitting around having a quiet drink.
