Description:Playa Blanca is a relatively peaceful resort located on the south-west coast of Lanzarote. Only recently is the resort becoming developed with many new hotels and apartments which all seem to be catering for the luxurious end of the market.

The three beaches all have bright sands which is making Playa Blanca the choice of many to settle to.   At present the resort offers a limited choice of restaurants and shopping but this will all change in 5 years.  There is already substantial committed funds from the private sector to make this area a playground for the rich.  There will be several Casinos, upmarket bars and clubs, several five star hotels with a la carte menus all landing by 2008.

Yields are fantastic here as property prices are (currently!) cheap and rental prices are healthy.  Demand is high for rentals as the area has an all year round season.  The island is one of the more easily accessed island compared to the others in its group so there will always be a steady influx of ready and waiting tenants for your property.
