Lanzarote Sightseeing and Beach Hopping Waterbus
From US$ 17.33
Hop on and stop off at Marina Rubicon and Papagayo beach with this waterbus taxi service from Playa Blanca. Settle aboard the glass-bottomed catamaran and cruise to Marina Rubicon and if you wish, on to Papagayo to enjoy its sands and clear seas. As you cruise, observe sea life through the underwater windows and gaze out over Lanzarote’s south coast. The waterbus departs several times daily, except on Tuesdays and Sundays.
What to Expect
Start your journey from the harbor at Playa Blanca by boarding the express waterbus. This water taxi catamaran features submarine views and is a great, low-cost way to admire Lanzarote’s south coast and enjoy a hop-on hop-off journey to and from Marina Rubicon and Papagayo beach.
Cruise to Marina Rubicon and if you wish, hop off to explore the Marina village or visit the Marina Rubicon Market, held here on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Continue your journey along the coastline as you observe Lanzarote’s fish and other marine life through the underwater windows.
Then, hop off at Papagayo beach, regarded as the island’s best beach. Relax on the sands here and swim in the crystal-clear seas before your return trip.
Alternatively, simply make the round-trip journey to enjoy the cruise.

This question doesn't relate to Nerja, but to Lanzarote. The beach in Nerja is really called Calahonda, and Papagayo was the restaurant, now demolished) that stood there.
