THINGS TO DO
In Playa Blanca, there are many fabulous restaurants serving all kinds of English, Spanish & Internacional cuisine. The majority are situated along the main front looking out over the sea. Four of our favourites on the front are Ninen (Italian fresh pasta) Typico Canario (Grill), Imagine (Indian) and Asiatico (Chinese/Thai).
Ninen, located in the town centre, of Playa Blanca. (We recommend you book the table in advance)
Typico Canaries, located on the main street near the church, is also a good option and great value, as is Rustoca's just a bit further up which does great pizzas.
There is a Burger King in the Commercial Papagayo Shopping Centre, on the front overlooking Dorada Beach, if you need a fast food fix!
If you drive past the above shopping centre and carry on a mile to the next number of good restaurants here including Lani's.
The liveliest pubs are around the Dorada Beach shopping area or the Irish Anvil near the port.
