Atlantic Gardens

Atlantic Gardens is all about its two stunning pools, with everything wrapping around them. Palm trees add a secluded, tropical feel and the adults-only policy guarantees peace and quiet. Just 10 minutes from the beach, all of Atlantic Gardens’ private bungalows come stylishly decorated and well equipped, and the on-site restaurant and snack bar serve a good choice of meals. Day trips away from the complex are easy to arrange, with a waterpark and the Marina Rubicón both nearby, but the intimate and private feel of the Atlantic Gardens makes it hard to leave, even for a day.

Overview of Playa Blanca

Holidays to Lanzarote are classic, thanks to the year-round warm weather, great beaches and host of family-friendly attractions. You can tailor your break to suit you, but the glorious sunshine will be a constant wherever you go. The famous beaches of Playa Blanca, ‘white beach’, are right at the bottom of the island. With a harbour and easy access to some of Lanzarote’s most beautiful landscapes, it is a perfect all-rounder.

Things to do in Playa Blanca

Popular Playa Blanca Beach is not enormous, but it is very pretty. With palm trees scattered along the white-sand coastline, it feels luxurious, authentic and surprisingly quiet. You should also visit the golden sands of Playa Dorado Beach and its excellent watersports, and if you’re up for more touristy attractions, head to Playa Flamingo. Marina Rubicón is a relatively new addition to the Playa Blanca landscape. A contemporary harbour, it is all about the finer things in life. In amongst the yachts, you’ll find boutiques and restaurants that guarantee romance. If you want to experience something really different, try a ferry trip to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura. It’s only 15 minutes away and gives you a whole new Canary Island to explore.

Resort Summary

In the centre of Playa Blanca you’ll find its namesake – a small but perfectly formed beach with distinctive white sand. Then head east about 10 minutes away from the town centre and you’ll find Playa Dorado, the ‘golden beach’, which is a great family-friendly place full of things to do.

Wander in the opposite direction and you’ll find Playa Flamingo and an amazing 50-metre tall lighthouse. Also east and slightly beyond Playa Dorado are the Papagayo coves, perhaps Lanzarote’s most unique and charming set of beaches.

Marina Rubicon is a relatively new addition to life in Playa Blanca, but has since become one of its defining features. A modern, fully-functioning marina complete with dozens of stunning boats, designer boutiques and a cluster of classy restaurants and bars means that this area is reminiscent of the resort Puerto Calero, otherwise known as ‘millionaire’s harbour’.
