Location:  El Cotillo   La Oliva

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.

El Cotillo is located in El Cotillo, Fuerteventura.

Small harbour and sunset
Overall 
 
5.0
Took a nice evening stroll around the small harbour and saw a beautiful sunset, if you haven't been to El Cotillo it's well worth a visit. There's amazing beaches too with crystal clear water, a dozen or so restaurants, and a handful of hotels. If you don't have a hire car there are regular buses from Corralejo which stop close to the harbour.

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.

A lovely place and not packed with tourists
Overall 
 
4.5
We had a lovely day out in El Cotillo, took the bus from Corralejo where we are staying to check it out as friends recommended it. So glad we went and will look for a hotel there on our next holiday, it's a lovely place and not packed with tourists like Corralejo.

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.
