Playa Blanca is the southernmost resort in Lanzarote and probably the most laid back of all. The sunny climate, the beaches and the views make it a great place to spend the winter holidays, especially when back home it's cold and grey.
Temperatures in Playa Blanca in December and around Christmas are usually above 20°C, sometimes they can reach even 25°C during the daytime. So the weather in Playa Blanca is still great for spending time on the beach and even swimming, especially if you wish to spend a different Christmas compared to the one back home.
Since this is a tourist resort, restaurants will be open as usual on Christmas day so there's no need to worry about not finding a place to eat. However, in 2021, Covid has had a huge impact on Lanzarote's tourism sector, but tourism is now recovering and it looks like the 2021/2022 winter season will be a busy one in the Canaries.
If you want to eat something at home and go for a picnic at the beach, then you should do your shopping at least one day in advance, because supermarkets will be closed on Christmas day and they will close early on Christmas Eve.
Some of the restaurants in Playa Blanca will serve their usual menu, but others do a special Christmas menu, so it finally depends on what you're looking for.
You will find a place where to have a Christmas meal even without a reservation, but if you want to go to a specific place and it's a popular one, then you should definitely book in advance, sometimes even months in advance.

If you're a first-time visitor to Playa Blanca during the winter month you may be wondering if the weather will be nice enough to spend Christmas day at the beach.
Although no one can predict the weather with certainty so far ahead (unless you're reading this on Christmas Eve), there are great chances that the sun will be shining bright and you will still be wearing your bathing suit along with your Santa hat. Instead of snowmen, you can do a sandcastle and even grab your lunch on the beach, if you've remembered to do your shopping in advance.
This page will be updated as soon as we get more info about restaurants and what to do in Playa Blanca at Christmas.
