El Cotillo Beach & Lagoons, El Cotillo

4.8
#1 of 125 in Outdoors in Fuerteventura
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.

    Great the bays that form the ocean at low tide, go past the Lighthouse is a must for those who want to enjoy the crystal clear water rich in fish and quiet hard to find in and around la concha during peak season.

    Little to say the beaches are paradise! Kilometres of beach which best! Especially with fun waves and wind sports! Eye with currents! Do not underestimate them, great presence.

    White sand and sea with colors from green to various shades of blue and blue. Very clean and very big beach. The only flaw we have some wind, but here again a thousand times. One of the best beach in the world.
