Visit El Cotillo

El Cotillo is a small, peaceful fishing village located on the island of Fuerteventura, 45 minutes from the airport in the north west of the island. Village life is centred around the small working harbour where you will find a selection bars and restaurants in a beautiful picturesque setting.

The resort is fast gaining in popularity, mainly due to its fabulous beaches and lagoons, which lie to the south of the village.

El Cotillo’s history

As it is in a quiet spot on the island you can understand its history as a smuggler’s village. The tower was built around 1741 after repeated attacks by English pirates. The tower is known as EL Toston and also in Spanish by Castillo de Rico Roque, and was built for the commandante Andres Bonito. The tower is open to tourists and often hosts exhibitions such as paintings.

El Cotillo Beaches

There are miles of beaches to the south of this part of sunny Fuerteventura. The beaches are excellent, and even on a busy day they are too big to be overcrowded. To the north are the lagoon beaches of shallow clear water and white sand contrasting against the black volcanic rock. The biggest of the beaches, La Concha, has a large car park, a beach bar and a lovely beach. It gets very busy with locals and tourists. The smaller lagoon beaches are favourite places for naturists. There are more lagoon beaches to the east of the lighthouse.

A couple of miles to the north of El Cotillo there is a lighthouse which is also a fishing museum, and a pleasant afternoon can be spent wandering there and back.
