We were staying in colour code but had been advised to visit the area and we weren't disappointed. A lovely beach, great scenery, clean and tidy. As with a lot of Fuerterventura there are naturist on the beach. It's mainly clothed nearest the access points and anything goes the further you go out. Topless bathing seems the norm. But it's...

The are some very nice beaches towards the cliffs and we spent the day there just lying on the sand and watching the huge rollers coming in and pounding the beach. There are no facilities so you need to take everyhing you'll need while you're there but it's a nice place to laze in the sun and watch the surfers.

I spend all my time wishing I could go back to El Cotillo! What a great place, it isn't over commercialised and is very authentic. Haven't been to a bad restaurant or café. Ideal for surfers, swimmers, relaxers ... just the ideal place for a holiday in all!

I have been coming to El Cotillo lagoons for about 15 years and over that time it has got busier and busier. Originally it was a mostly deserted oasis but it has now been found by ever increasing crowds. It’s still great though but you need to come soon before it gets too busy. There is a quite a large...

Perfect with my kids 5 and 6. The lagoon offered shelter from the big waves. There are some naturist here, so if you are very prude beware. I recommend it!

Cotillo is just a fantastic place to visit and especially with kids as the lagoons are perfect for them to play in as they are very shallow. this part of the island is beautiful and even a walk to the lighthouse is superb. I highly recommend this spot.

Great clean beaches, not overcrowded. Good for sun worshippers. Rock pooling. But must be aware of the strong currents when swimming
