Playa Blanca plays an important role in transporting locals and tourists across the stretch of the Atlantic in the south of the island to Fuerteventura our neighboring island. In the first quarter of 2017 alone there has been an increase of 6000 passengers using the ferry service by the 2 companies that offer a service between the islands, Fred Olsen and and Lineas Romero. In all this makes a total of 328,217 making the crossing. Its no wonder that The Public Entity of Puertos Canarios have announced that they will be making an investment of 310.000 Euros to make improvements to the port.The objective is to make Playa Blanca one of the port infrastructures with the highest quality of services and activity on the whole island of Lanzarote. During the month of June, the rest of the conditioning works will be contracted with which the planned investment for this year 2017 will be closed.
