Papagayo Beach, Playa Blanca

#1 of 184 in Outdoors in Lanzarote
Beach · Nature / Park
Unwind in the scenic surroundings of Papagayo Beach, a beach in a national park. If it is a clear day, look out to the islands of Puertito and Fuerteventura. The fine white sand and calm blue waters are ideal for relaxing and swimming. Though there is a cafe and bar for refreshments, compared to other beaches in Lanzarote this one has relatively few amenities, so come prepared. The short trek down to the beach might not be suitable for those with mobility issues or strollers. Before you visit Playa Blanca, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
