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.

  • In El Cotillo can choose, if you go to the right it has lakes and the area of the lighthouse of the suckling pig with lots of quiet coves where children can play and bathe without problem and also can go to the area on the left of the people where are the cliffs with the Wilder beaches ideal for sports such as Kite, windsurfing or surfing. The village is small but very nice and several restaurants where you can enjoy fresh fish.
