Not just that, Playa Blanca is also the “gateway” to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura, with ferry crossing taking just 25 minutes to Corralejo. And let’s not forget about the Papagayo beaches located just a few kilometres east of Playa Blanca - a series of untouched beautiful beaches - considered the best on the island.
