El Cotillo


El Cotillo is a small fishing village popular with the islands locals and tourist that are “in the know”. The village is dedicated to the virgin of Good Travel(Virgin de Buen Viaje) and her name is painted on the cliffs of the old harbour. To the north and south are stunning beaches with sheltered lagoons for swimmings or open stretches ideal for the many surfers that visit here. The old harbour area has been rejuvenated lately with a new pedestrian walk.


The Village has a laid back relaxed atmosphere so don’t expect the flashy, fast paced night life of other resorts on the island, though if this is what you occasionally need then the bustling large resort of Corralejo is just a 20 minute drive away and there is a regular bus connection between the two.

The beach to the south of the village is popular with surfers and if either skill or energy level orevent you from riding the waves a walk along the cliff path above the beach is worth the effort to see tricks performed by a human on a board and for the view.

The pristine white beaches to the north are lined with sheltered lagoons ideal a track runs from the lighthouse to Corralejo, best attempted in a 4×4 vehicule, butt another great walk.

In the evening pick yourself a restaurant with a view west, and with a glass of your favourite tipple sit back and enjoy the sunset and chill….

The village is well know for the many fine restaurants which mostly specialise in fresh caught fish from the small supermarkets and fresh produce can be purchased at many local shops. A new large supermarket is now open on the outskirts of the village. To the south of the village is the old fort, now used as a tourist office and ar/historical centre, which was built to provide protection from the invading British pirates. To the northa museum has been opened in the lighthouse at Punta Toston which concentrates on the village of El Cotillo which concentrates on the village of El Cotillo and its connections with the sea and fishing.
