El Cotillo is a stunning village. The beach and lagoons are simply stunning. There is a lovely harbour in the village and plenty of restaurants. El Cotillo is well worth visiting, particularly at sundown, to watch the beautiful sunsets.

Visited El Cotillo a few times in both November and January and were lucky enough each time to secure a 'bunker' to protect us from the wind (it is usually quite windy here). Sheltered from the wind it was lovely and warm. The sea was...More

We went to these beaches on the local bus from corralejo. Really easy to use, bus came on time and it only cost 3.10 euros each way per person. The name means Blue Lagoons and they are exactly blue lagoons. Beaches are clean. Would recommend...More
