Let your holidays be warm and sunny this Christmas with a trip to Playa Blanca Spain. This quiet beach in Lanzarote Spain is one of the newest attractions in the island. Its secluded white beaches are known for their natural beauty and seemingly unique weather compared to the rest of the island. The naturally gorgeous beachscape and island attractions make the Playa Blanca villas a popular destination for those who want to have both fun and relaxation for their holidays. It definitely makes a good candidate for your holiday destination this season. Here are some more reasons to visit the island.
A perfect beach in more ways than one.
Flanking the Playa Blanca’s gorgeous white sand beaches are the Montana Roja and Femes mountains. Aside from adding beauty to the scenery, the Montana Roja also shields the beaches from the Atlantic winds. This makes the clear and shallow waters of the beach perfect for family swimming. Not to worry though, because there are also water activities for those who want some excitement. Playa Blanca is also known as the quietest beach in the area making it perfect for relaxation and sunbathing.
One of the reasons why people go on an island tour or vacation is to get up close and personal with the marine life. Tourists can have their own underwater experience in three different ways. They can snorkel, dive, or go on a submarine tour. Whatever mode they choose, these underwater adventures are meant to be enjoyed.
Museo Atlantico or Atlantic Museum.
This is the first underwater museum in Europe. It houses more that 300 sculptures made by Jason deCaires Taylor whose work aims to raise awareness on oceanic issues and help people understand the threats that our waters are facing. This alone is reason enough to put this museum in your must see list.
Your Playa Blanca trip will not be complete without experiencing its arts and culture. The best way to do this is to visit historic sites and museums. Aside from the Atlantic Museum, the Castillo de las Coloradas and Faro de Pechiguera lighthouse are also worth seeing. If you want to get an overlooking view of the coves and beaches, then take a hike to the top of Montana Roja.
Unique tour experiences.
Tired of walking or riding the bus? Explore the island’s attraction using non-traditional modes like Segway, Quad Bike, and ATVs. This is definitely a refreshing and adventurous way to experience the island. First timers need not worry because there are instructors that can help you learn how to handle the vehicles. However, you should also consider your skills and physical condition before attempting these tours. Remember, always put safety first.
