What to Do - Diving Plus
Unlike many other dive destinations Playa Blanca and the Marina Rubicon are great places to be when you are not diving or if there are non-divers in your party. So what is there to do?
There is a also a beautiful traffic free promenade at Playa Blanca that stretches all the way from Colorados in the east to the El Faro lighthouse in the West. In total this gives you about eight miles of quiet traffic free walking with some stunning views of Playa Blanca and the islands of Lobos and Fueteventura. The promenade also provides some great places to take photographs of some of the spectaculat sunrises and sunsets that we get in Playa Blanca. For the more energetic a half hour stroll up our local extinct volcano the Montana Roja will reward you with some spectacular views of the south of the island and across to Fuerteventura.
On Wednesdays and Saturdays you can visit the local market at the Marina Rubicon where many local craft companies sell their products. These range from clothes, shoes, bags and wallets to local wines ad cheeses and various craft products.
