Create an itinerary including El Cotillo Beach & Lagoons
The calm pools at El Cotillo Beach & Lagoons make for great swimming or snorkeling, but be cautious as unexpected currents are common. Looking out across the water, you’ll see a lighthouse and, looking inland, a volcanic desert. This unique setting served as a movie set for a major production, “Exodus” by Ridley Scott. Although you’ll find one cafe, consider bringing a picnic or barbecue supplies. Its not uncommon to see clothing optional swimmers and sunbathers at this beach.

  • Beautiful beach’s on both sides of the resort, lots of good restaurants with the freshest fish you will ever taste. It is a little sleepy but for me that just adds to the charm.

  • Very nice beach with sand, great for surfing and kiteing. You can reach it on foot from El Cotillio.

  • Amazing beach. White sands which makes also the water look turquoise, small lagunas with calm waters and then big waves further if you wish to have some fun. Not busy usually, restaurants few hundred metres away, car park close by. This place is great for relaxing and enjoying the view.
  • Had nice rock barrier to break wind. Plenty of sealift aswell. Overall you will get a tan
