Playa Blanca which the town is named after is a European Blue Flag Beach and is the most central of the 3 beaches in the resort. This means that there are plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops nearby. The next beach along is the Playa Flamingo which is a sheltered beach good for families and also close to the promenade with all the facilities you need.. The Playa Dorada which means The Golden Beach has very soft sands and very popular with the locals due to its calm waters. This is also relatively close to the main resort so easily accessible.
