A charming, whitewashed Spanish fishing village, Las Playitas is now a small and delightful resort arranged around a pretty bay in the south of Fuerteventura. It’s got a 1-kilometre-long beach of volcanic sand right in the centre of town, and a fantastic sports centre, which offers a huge range of facilities for every imaginable activity. The town has a sprinkling of shops, bars, cafés and restaurants – all you need for an enjoyable holiday. Just north of the town stretches the Cuchillos de Vigán, a wild, volcanic landscape that has a fabulous viewpoint at the top. If you want to explore further afield, you can visit the wonderful rural towns in the interior, such as pretty Antigua, or take in the amazing salt flats at Salinas del Carmen.

Your guide to Las Playitas holidays
Holidays to Las Playitas are all about sun, sea and sand. There’s a fabulous beach of dark volcanic sand that curves around the bay, and you can try your hand at all kinds of activities, from water sports to golf, at the sports centre. The fishermen still bring in their catch to the harbour, and you can enjoy some fabulously fresh fish in the local restaurants. If you enjoy walking or biking, you can head into the Cuchillos de Vigán, a protected volcanic landscape, located just north of the town. And if you want to experience the tranquil life of inland Fuerteventura, there are plenty of charming towns and villages to explore within a short drive.
The beach is the main focus of holidays to Las Playitas. It’s a gorgeous curve of dark, volcanic sand, lapped by crystal clear waters. It’s a great base for a range of water sports, with facilities for everything from sailing to paddle boarding. The beach has good facilities, including sunbeds and parasols for rent, and is backed by a promenade, shaded with palm trees. There are a few cafés and restaurants within easy reach, if you want to take a break. You could also head to nearby Gran Tarajal, a slightly bigger resort located just 3 miles away, which also has a lovely beach.
