The Fuerteventura region
The semi-desert Island of Fuerteventura lies just under 100km off the coast of Africa (near the border of Morocco and Western Sahara). It enjoys a near-perfect climate with average monthly temperatures ranging from 17°C in January to 35°C in August.
Fuerteventura is the longest Island in the archipelago at 98km north to south and the second-largest Canary Island after Tenerife. The unforgiving barren and arid interior of the island shares much with it's African neighbours of Morroco and the Western Sahara including sparse rainfall, rocky-desert landscapes (the temperature of these rocks can reach 67°C on a hot day!) and simple flat-roofed white-washed villages.
Fuerteventura is perhaps most famous for it's beaches, with over 50km of stunning white and golden sand. Despite Tourism being a relatively recent phenomenon on the island, there is a well developed infrastructure with Golf Courses, a Zoo, a Water Park and numerous Marine Excursions. If you fancy something a bit more active, the Island offers great Surfing, Windsurfing and Kite Surfing as well as Big Game Fishing and Diving.
If you just want to take it easy, then those miles of white sandy beaches make the perfect getaway, even in peak season you should be able to find a relatively secluded spot for yourself.
In short, there is plenty for Families, Twenty-somethings and Sports enthusiastes alike.
Often described as “Picturesque and Unspoilt”.
Besides being a fishing village, El Cotillo also developed as a Surf town with the Beaches and Reefs to the north and south of the town attracting Windsurfers/Kite-boarders and Surfers from all over the world. The reefs shelter the small lagoons at the northern end of the town making them safe places to bathe. Surfers are very much part of the laid-back character of the town, with several hippy-style or hippy-renovated houses in evidence.
El Cotillo was the capital of the original Maxorata Kings (natives of this part of the island) before the conquest, however with the exception of the Fortaleza del Tostón, there is not much in the way of historic Buildings or archaeological remains here. The Fortaleza del Tostón is a fortified tower built by the Spanish in 1797 to defend the area from Pirates and can be found just south of the Harbour. The small church is dedicated to the Virgen del Buen Viaje.
Like many towns in the Canary Islands, this was originally (and still is) a Fishing Village. You can still see old fishermen land their catch in the old harbour after negotiating the perilous-looking entrance to the harbour!
There are a few pleasant fish restaurants overlooking this pretty little harbour – a natural harbour which is now reinforced with a concrete sea wall.
Nightlife in El Cotillo is generally very low-key (there are a few bars) with the exception of events such as local Fiestas and the occasional Music Festival!
