Fantastic view of the big waves from the lighthouse

Visited the lighthouse today. It was a windy day with extraordinary big waves flushing in against the lighthouse. Just fantastic. Worth a visit.

Just amazing area, a must see. Clean litter free beaches a delight. Little path disabled friendly area with seats so you can enjoy the wildness and unspoilt area. The rocks are a wonderful area of small plants and pools of drying salt, take a jar and spoon and collect the salt, it is the best ever when dried for cooking.... More

Super little museum in lovely, dramatic setting. Staff were friendly and helpful. Also worth taking the self guided nature walk from the lighthouse - a very pleasant 30 minute stroll. Note the museum is closed Sundays and Mondays, it costs €3 to get in. Worthwhile.

Went to El Cotillo three times but only saw the lighthouse on the second occasion. Amazing. Very dramatic with waves crashing in. We never went into the museum but had drinks and chocolate served in a small cafe. The views are stunning and there's an area where people make little towers from the rocks. Couldn't resist. Third time we went... More

We were driving around the island and stumbled across this place. Breath taking views but didn't stay to long after. If your in a rental it's worth a stop .

Lovely light house, with fishing Centre based in the old light house building. There is a 40 min circular walk, rock pools, fossils and amazing views. If you follow the dirt/ sand road towards along the cost you come to some lovely coves.

Stood waiting to pay the entry fee for about 15 minutes before giving up on the rude and totally oblivious staff coming to serve us. Would be able to rate this higher if we'd have been able to actually get in.

Well worth a visit for the panoramic view. Having visited the museum we had a greater understanding of how the locals fished from such small rowing boats - they each used two. You will have to visit to find out how.

The museum is situated in the old lighthouse and is very interesting to see how people lived on the island many years ago. great photo opportunities if you travel in along the old dirt road from Corralejo.
