El Cotillo is quite a large fishing village located on the north west coast of Fuerteventura in the municipality of La Oliva. It's not as busy as the nearby resort of Corralejo but has many bars, restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, villas and apartments. El Cotillo has some of the island's finest beaches, along with some magnificent views of cliffs, and its rugged landscape. Famous for its Lighthouse built in 1897, El Cotillo is also the birthplace of the famous footballer Giovanni Pérez Rodriguez, aka Gio.

Charming place, with beautiful scenery and amazing beaches
Overall 
 
5.0
We love El Cotillo, it's a charming place, with beautiful scenery and amazing beaches. We came here on the bus from Corralejo where we usually stay when we're over. We will try and rent a place here instead next time we come over, we found a supermarket, a bank, and loads of places to eat and drink so it seems fine for self catering.

Took the bus from Corralejo to El Cotillo and went for a long hike to the South of the town instead of into the town as we have done before. Such a natural beautiful peaceful place, took a few snaps.

Picturesque fishing village
Overall 
 
5.0
Picturesque fishing village with several restaurants serving fresh fish, took the number 8 bus to and from Corralejo, visited the harbour area to the south, and the Fortress of Toston, will try the north net time. Very peaceful and not packed with tourists, recommended and well worth visit.
