Iberostar Selection Lanzarote Park

Enjoying a convenient location, just five minutes from the beach, the Iberostar Selection Lanzarote Park is an incredible complex, set out in a circular motif that makes it feel modern yet cosy and friendly, all at the same time.

Gleaming white buildings are pulled through into the chic bedroom interior design schemes and with three sea-view pools to choose from, you’ll never feel crowded while you swim. In terms of food, you’ll be full to bursting, with an excellent buffet restaurant and al fresco food truck to sample, but the town centre is only a short walk away, for when you want to try something new.

Overview of Playa Blanca

Holidays to Lanzarote have long been a popular choice for families, couples and singles, thanks to the uninterrupted sunshine and great beaches that the Canary Islands have become world-famous for.

Playa Blanca, home to the Iberostar Selection Lanzarote Park, translates as ‘white beach’ is so named because of the dazzling scenery, but it has more to offer than just sunbathing. A fabulous harbour, lively nightlife scene and easy access to fun hiking trails all combine to make it a multifaceted destination that provides a holiday based on your specific needs.

Things to do in Playa Blanca

Say goodbye to the incredibly stylish Iberostar Selection Lanzarote Park complex for a few hours and head to Playa Blanca. Small but so incredibly well equipped to cater to the needs to tourists, the town is lined with bright-white beaches, all of which are safe for families to enjoy. The Playa Flamingo is exceptionally close to the hotel.

Walk along the promenade and you’ll come to the Marina Rubicon, an upmarket area designed to feel more exclusive. Waterfront restaurants and high-end shops are the perfect backdrop to some expensive yachts – it’s an impressive sight. Pretty hiking trails are scattered throughout Lanzarote, with Playa Blanca no exception, but if you prefer to exercise out on the dance floor, there is a decent selection of bars that stay open until late.

Playa Blanca is the ultimate in family-friendly Lanzarote towns and offers up a variety of fun experiences that don’t all have to revolve around the (admittedly phenomenal) beaches.

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’.
