El Cotillo Travel Guide

El Cotillo Travel & Tourism Information

El Cotillo is a small town in northwestern Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands. The town is located on the island's northern coast, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) from Puerto del Rosario's island capital by car.

El Cotillo is a popular tourist destination for its beaches, some of the best in Fuerteventura. The town's beaches are divided into two main areas: the Lagoon (La Laguna) and the Beach (La Playa).

The Lagoon is a sheltered bay with calm water and a sandy bottom, ideal for swimming and snorkeling. There are several restaurants and bars in the Lagoon area and a small beach.

The Beach is a long stretch of sand with waves ideal for surfing and bodyboarding. Several surf schools in El Cotillo offer lessons and rentals.

In addition to its beaches, El Cotillo is also known for its lighthouse, which was built in 1879 and is still in operation today. The lighthouse is located on a small island just off the coast of El Cotillo and can be reached by a short boat ride.

El Cotillo is a great place to relax and enjoy the island's natural beauty. Whether you're looking to soak up the sun on the beach, go for a swim in the lagoon, or surf the waves, El Cotillo has something for everyone.
