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.

  • Lovely outlook with stunning views. Need your own towels or sheet to sit on as there are no commercial outlets. A shop and Restaurant nearby to purchase items.

  • Love this place. From the lagoon type beaches to the old town area. Yes they are building more on the outskirts but hopefully won’t infringe on the beaches. It can get windy but that’s par for the...

  • A lovely beach with natural lagoons. The coast line is quite rugged in parts however there are still plenty of sandy parts to sun bathe and the area has the typical Fuerteventura stone/ lava walled wind protecting "houses". As always please pick up your litter and take it home to help protect the beauty of the area and the wildlife living there.
  • 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.
