El Cotillo Holidays

Home to one of the island’s best beaches

This charming little village is on the northwestern corner of Fuerteventura in an area renowned for its rugged coastline and vast, untouched landscapes. While El Cotillo’s reputation as a holiday hotspot is growing, it retains its character with its little seafood restaurants supplied by the colourful boats bob offshore. If you want to know more about the village’s deep connections to the sea, pop into the Museum of Traditional Fishing next to the jaunty stripes of El Cotillo’s lighthouse. 
You could spend your days exploring the island. Or you could simply stretch out on your own patch of beach – try El Cotillo Beach or the white sand coves of Playa de Los Lagos. For gentle strolls and a break from the sun, you can explore Calle Muelle Pescadores behind the old harbour, a pedestrian strip of shops and tapas bars where you’ll also spot paintings and sculptures by local artists. Lazy days come to an end with blazing sunsets. Find a good spot and sit back to enjoy the show.
