El Cotillo Fuerteventura
El Cotillo in Fuerteventura Canary Islands
Welcome to El Cotillo
El Cotillo is small fishing village full of character situated in the northwest of Fuerteventura. Close to the harbour and in the centre of the resort you will find many bars, restaurants and more recently new accommodation has been built too. This is definitely the up and coming place at present with new developments and amenities to accommodate the tourists that are flocking here!
The attraction behind this resort is the amazingly beautiful lagoons and beaches along the coastline of El Cotillo some accessed by foot and some you have to drive to get too and occasionally these tracks will get that rough that only 4 wheel drives are recommended to use them!

The ocean here is ideal for experienced surfers and they are a regular sight along the seafront! Although the sea is not very safe for swimmers and tourists as the waves have been known to sink small fishing boats!! It is recommended that you only go in the sea during the summer month when the sea seems calm - the beaches and lagoons are not tourist beaches and therefore as well as having no watersports and activities along them they do not have lifeguards either so stay safe!!
The beaches and lagoons themselves are breathtaking with white sand and crystal clear waters - but open and the sun is fierce - for shade you should bring your own parasol or take natural shade in one of the many lava stones these are also good for wind shelter!!
There are few small restaurants, cafes and bars dotted along the coastline and beach these are generally serving Spanish food and seafood and although can look a little 'shed' like the food and scenery that these places provide are amazing!!
The nightlife here is quiet, if you enjoy having lovely food a romantic stroll and sitting quietly outside a bars and watching the world go by then El Cotillo is perfect for you!! You'll find most of the bars in the old harbour which is very picturesque.
In El Cotillo you will find the old Faro - light house which is at the end of the island point past the lagoons and on the cliffs near the centre you will see round shaped fort - Fortaleza del Tostón - this was built in late 1790's to defend the island against invading pirates!! The village is dedicated to 'Virgin de Buen Viaje' which is the virgin of good travel and you will find these words painted on the cliffs in the old harbour.
El Cotillo has a few Ocean front and old traditional Canarian white washed houses Villas that you can rent, apartments in blocks and a few Hotels that range from basic - somewhere for you to just lay your head to luxurious with a wide range of facilities! All available for your stay in this amazing resort! All property ranges in size and shape, from studio's or one bedroom apartments, if there are just the two of you to three bedroom - normally sleeping up 8 if your taking the family or going in a big group, or one bedroom villas and bungalows up to 4 bedroom villas!
There are Companies that rent these properties out, but there are private rentals available too, where people that have bought the property for holiday homes and when they are not there using it they will rent it out for your exclusive use! These properties are set in a privately owned complex, where some locals live! They come with communal swimming pools too, and the pools are normally quieter due to the fact it isn't full of holiday makers and is more residential. A word of warning though these are quieter and normally better for families or older groups than the young tourists!!!
