Playa Grande

Playa Grande

Stretching for a kilometre along the coast of Puerto del Carmen, Playa Grande, also known as Playa Blanca, is an urban beach with golden sand and calm waters framed by an endless seafront.

With 1,200 metres of fine sand and clear, shallow waters, Playa Grande is one of the largest beaches in Lanzarote and has all kinds of services and amenities, making it the perfect choice for those staying in the surrounding area.

The flip side is that thanks to its location, Playa Grande tends to have a significant influx of tourists and during the high season it can get a little crowded.

Playa Grande's seafront is the heart of Puerto del Carmen and is lined with restaurants, bars and shops, so it's always lively, especially at sunset.

How to get to Playa Grande

As it's surrounded by such an important tourist centre, Playa Grande is easily accessible on foot from any of the surrounding hotels. You can also take the bus to get there from other nearby towns or to travel by car and park nearby.
