GUEST COMMENT
We have just come back from Croatia where we did some diving. You must have spoiled us for we kept comparing the standards we met there with your well equipped centre and your always friendly, helpful and highly professional crew!

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?

What to do - Around Playa Blanca

Locally there are the many excellent beaches that can be found around Playa Blanca. As well as the main beaches at Playa Dorada and Playa Flamingo, there are also beautiful secluded beaches to be found just to the east of Playa Blanca. The most famous of these is the beach at Papagayo which can be reached either by car or by using the local water taxi.

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.

What to do - Outside of Playa Blanca

Outside of Playa Blanca Lanzarote has much to offer when you are not diving. First there is the world famous Timanfaya National Park where you can view Lanzarotes unique volcanic landscape. The work of Local artist Cesar Manrique should also be seem especially the Fundacion Cesar Manrique, the Jameos del Aqua, Las Cuevas verdes and the Mirador Del Rio, all of which encapsulate Manriques ideal of making the natural landscape the main attraction. Other places to visit include the beautiful beach at Famara (great for surfers), the islands of Lobos and La Graciosa and local Lanzarote villages such as El Golfo, Calleta, Orzola and Play Quemada. In fact there is so much to do you will have to do what many of our customers do and come back year after year.

Local Restaurants and Cuisine

In the lunchtimes and evenings there are some excellent restaurants to be found in both Playa Blanca and the Marina Rubicon complex. For a lunchtime snack try Lanis or  The One Bar both of which offer excellent good value food. In the evenings you can try something a little different. In the Marina Complex can be found the excellent cuisine provided by restaurants such as Casa Brigida, Casa Roja and La Petite Marmite all of which offer excellent value for money quality meals. No visit to the Canary Island would be complete without trying the local Spanish and Canarian cuisine, many of which use the fresh locally caught fish. For something more authentic  try the ocal tapas and look out for those restaurants that advertise themselves as Tipico Canario.

If your tastes run to particular cuisines For those people looking for particular cuisines there are a number of Italian, Chinese, Mexican Indian and Argentinian restaurants that you can choose from within both Playa Blanca and the Marina Rubicon
