The ancient tower Castillo de las Coloradas built in the beginning of the 18th century is the symbol of the town. Initially this protective facility was designed as a protection against pirates; today the fortress is depicted on the emblem of Playa Blanca. However, this place is famous not for its historical attractions, but for its beautiful beaches. Due to the proximity to the reefs the sea here is calm and the water is clear and clean. The resort has become very popular among diving fans. The underwater visibility reaches 20 meters here. This fact allows observing the splendor of the underwater world in all details.
We simply cannot fail to mention the local cuisine. Of course, seafood will be among the main dishes in any local restaurant, but the choice of delicacies offered in local restaurants will surprise even great connoisseurs of the Caribbean cuisine. The beach area is the location of numerous restaurants with open terraces. Here you can taste fish, which is cooked on coal, or order a kebab.
