Description

The beach of El Cotillo is located on the island of Fuerteventura. It is an open spot to the sea with good waves less in the summer months.

The beach offers an easy left and right-hander wave working with all the tide heights. It has sand and rock-bottom and waves for beginners.

There is usually enough surfer: respect the locals and be careful with the rock-bottom.

Con los bancos de arena las olas rompen mas fuera dejando espumitas perfectos para los primeros pasos en el surfing, cuando es pequeño - mediano perfecto para intermedios también con varios picos de calidad.
