You can take the number 61 bus from Arrecife Airport to Playa Blanca. The 61 bus stops at both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 at the airport and also calls at Matagorda, Puerto del Carmen, Puerto Calero and Yaiza en route to the resort. Once in Playa Blanca the 61 stops at the main bus station and then at the harbour/ferry port.

A one way ticket from the airport to Playa Blanca costs €3.15.
What other parts of the island can you reach on public buses from Playa Blanca? Why not visit the market in Teguise, one of the most popular weekly visitor attractions on the island? The number 13 bus departs from the harbour at 09.00 every Sunday morning, stopping again at the main bus station just after, before heading towards Teguise, via Arrecife. The return bus from Teguise leaves at 13.30 so make sure you don’t miss it – as this is the only direct service back to Playa Blanca. If you miss it, take a bus to the central bus station (Eastacion de Guaguas) in Arrecife and catch the number 60 bus.
