The restaurants offer such a wide range of choices that even the fussiest eater could be satisfied. As an added attraction it is only just a few minute walk to Flamingo Beach.
Flamingo Beach is perfect for families. The waters have small waves, so it’s good for kids under 8. The inviting promenade connects the beach with the centre of Playa Blanca and the promenade in Playa Blanca is filled with waterside cafes and restaurants. The seafood is a renowned favorite, but there is still plenty of options for people who prefer something else. Water sports are also common among the beaches with heavier waves, including jet skiing, sailing, wind surfing, and scuba diving.
The Marina Rubicon Market is another family friendly activity in Playa Blanca. Open from 9am until 2pm on every Wednesday and Saturday, this market features over three hundred stalls.

The Faro de Pechiguera lighthouse is another popular attraction for couples looking for a romantic time on their holiday.
