The Canary Islands region

Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands, but the least developed. Situated on the same latitude as Florida and Mexico and only 100 kms from Morocco, it basks in 3000 hours of sunshine per year. It has the best beaches of all the Canary Islands, 150 in total, and unlike the other islands most of the beaches are of fine golden sand. Indeed the beaches here are considered to be among the best in the world.

The island is a mecca for water sport enthusiasts and the world wind surfing championships are held here every year.

El Cotillo

About El Cotillo

El Cotillo is a small, peaceful village at the northern end of Fuerteventura, on the west coast. The village is centred around the small new harbour that is mostly used by local fishermen. The old harbour is only a short walk to the north over the headland that separates the two. There are several bars and restaurants close to both harbours and the views from El Toston tower are particularly pleasing.

El Cotillo Beaches

There are miles of excellent beaches to the south of this part of sunny Fuerteventura, and even on a busy day they are too big to be overcrowded. These beaches are popular with surfers, windsurfers and kiteboarders, and their colourful sails and kites only add to the scenery. The north beach incorporates several lagoons which provide safe bathing. The circular stone windbreaks (corralles) that are a common feature in El Cotillo surround these lagoons. This beach is popular with naturists because of the available shelter and safe bathing.

"Lovely apartment in the heart of el cotillo"

It was our first time in fuerteventura and we spent great 3 weeks in the Haven and el cotillo.
The Haven is a small apartment with a nice roof terrace and everything you need for a relaxed stay. We really enjoyed that it is not located in a bungalow complex full of tourists but in the middle of the little village close to the old harbor. In the mornings we loved to drink our coffee on the roof terrace and enjoyed the beautiful sea view. Iain and Jacqui were very friendly owners and changed the towels and bedding every once in a while when we were at the beach which was perfect!

The apartment is close to both beaches, the lagoons in the north and the rougher surfers beach in the south. We mainly went to the beach in the south, which was a 10 min walk. This beach is very wide, clean, uncrowded and a great place for surfing if the waves are good.

We also rented a car for one week and made some sightseeing trips. This, we would recommend to everyone as Fuerteventura has a very diverse nature even though it looks desert-like at first sight.

We definitely want to come back to el cotillo and stay in the Haven again!

Thank you so much and hope to see you next year.
Have a great Christmas and New Year.
Kind regards
Jacqui & Iain

We stayed at the Haven for one week in December and could not have wished for a better place to stay. Spotlessly clean and so very comfortable it has everything you could wish for. In the morning you wake up to the sound of the waves rolling in! There is a fantastic rooftop space where you can enjoy stunning views of the village and the ocean and relax on the comfy sun loungers in the sunshine. Although the Haven is so close to all the lovely restaurants and bars it is really quiet and if you decide to have a night in there is a cooker and hob (full size) so you can do your own catering.
We would definitely like to stay at this apartment again in the future.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of The Haven and most importantly El Cotillo.

"The Haven"

The Haven had everything we needed for our short break. Very clean and well situated seconds away from the sea and local fish restaurants. El Cotillo is a perfect base to walk and explore the west coast of Fuerteventura. We will be back.
Thanks to Jacqui and Iain for their help and advice.

"Perfect living in the habrour area"

Fast and friendly communication during the bokking and stay
We enjoyed our vacation in "The Heaven" because of the friendly area with all the natives around. We felt like part of the people living ther especially when we visited the locations in the field.
We loved the short distance to the restaurants, bars and even to the close beaches.
It was a pleasure for us to live in the properties of Jacqueline & Ian for our stay of 3 weeks as we felt liek being part of the family.

Thank you so much for this great time.

"Highly recommended fantastic accomodation in a brilliant location"

The accommodation was a 1 bedroom spacious apartment on ground floor level. The apartment was very clean and had everything you need including TV and washing machine if you are staying for a while. From the roof terrace you can sunbathe looking out to the sea and there are also views of the village.
It is very close to bars and restaurants if you do not want to cook.
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with good accommodation this is an excellent place to stay and I will be reccommending it to my friends.

Thank you for taking the time for a comprehensive review and pointing out the little things that we provide! We are really glad you liked it and our greatest compliment is someone books again before they depart. This really does speak volumes. :-)

"Peace and tranquility"

The Haven, is a delight, peaceful, tranquil with all you need for a short or longer stay. We stayed for three weeks and were completely relaxed and chilled. Owners Iain and Jacqui offer excellent service and local knowledge without being intrusive at all.

For those looking at the website it is accurate and a true representation of The Haven, clean,spotless and well equipped. The Haven is nicely situated close to the Old Harbour, you can hear the sea crashing in from the bedroom if you have the window open.

We love El Cotillo and would stay at The Haven again as a first choice.

Thank you for taking the time to give a us a review I am sure it will help others "make there mind up"..... We do try our best and to see this makes it all worth while :-)

"The Haven at El Cotillo"

The apartment is in a good location half way between the beach and the lagoons but the terrace was 2 floors up and you had to stand up to get a view of the ocean. You walk outside straight onto a lane, with a short walk to the side of the Old Harbour. I personally would prefer an apartment with its own terrace or balcony with a sea view. We had some cool evenings and it was quite cold and dark inside. However it had everything we needed for a 2 week stay, and the sound of the sea could be heard in the bedroom if you kept the window open. The owners were very helpful and kind. El Cotillo is a place for complete peace and quiet and you have the choice of surfing on one side and lagoon swimming the other. It is worth cycling to further beaches to get one to yourself. The French bakery was a God send with delicious bread and the supermarket is a 10 minute walk away with everything you need for self catering.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We really appropriate your views.
Kind regards
