Our Surfcamp: The Surfhouse
BIENVENIDO TO THE CANARY ISLANDS – WELCOME TO EL COTILLO AND OUR SURF HOUSE – CLOSE TO THE BEACH AND SURROUNDED BY A FISHING VILLAGE.
With more than 300 sunny days a year and a well balanced climate you will be able to relax – in our surfcamp on Fuerteventura
You are living in our idyllic fishing village El Cotillo. Our surfhouse is close to the ocean and the surfer’s beach. Even though we call us surf camp, that doesn’t mean that you have to stay in tents. It’s important for us that you have enough personal space and comfort, but also the possibility for experiencing your holidays with others in your shared home. Relax in a surrounding in tune with nature and the ocean.
The stay in our surfhouse always includes a surfcourse (at least 3 days / week).
Your home at the ocean
Feel at home in our comfortable surfhouse
The impressive scenery of cliffs, lagoon beaches and a moon-like landscape will captivate every surfer and nature lover. “Secret spots” provide perfect relaxation in an unforgettable natural environment.
Living the surf style – with friends
Two terraces with a lot of sunshine
Our big roof top invites you to relax! You can also enjoy some delicious food, sun bathe or admire the one-of-a-kind sky from our hammock. It’s the place to start a new adventure with the characters of your favorite book or just chit chat for hours with a cool drink in hand. On our second terracce downstairs is a grill so you can prepare a BBQ alltogether!
Our lovely decorated rooms
We can offer you six comfortable double rooms (with single or double beds) and for those who would like to spend their holidays with two friends, we also have two three bed dorms! So you can choose either:
- accomondation in a single room
- accomondation in a double room (with a friend)
- accomondation in a triple room (with 2 friends)
Enjoy and admire the beautiful starry sky above Fuerteventura
.. and don’t forget to bring a cosy sweater for the cooler nights
Accommodation and catering
Yummie food and drinks – spoil your body with soul food!
Treat yourself after a surfing day
We also care for your physical well-being: In the morning we prepare a full breakfast, which gives you plenty of energy for a good start to a fantastic day. In our dining hall with panoramic view you can choose from an energising range of cereals, fruits and vegetables, freshly squeezed juices, different kinds of bread, cakes, coffee, tea and a large variety of cold cuts of meat and cheese. Dinner is also special. After an exhausting beach day we provide you with a delicious meal. As a matter of course, we cater for vegetarians and try to provide a healthy and balanced choice of diet. Once a week we arrange a BBQ and one group meal in a restaurant is also included in the surf house package. Sunday is the cook’s day off, so you can sample the restaurants in El Cotillo on your own.
The surf course
Having fun is our highest priority – come and join our surf lessons!
Leisure time activities on Fuerteventura
Cotillo has more to offer than the ocean and beautiful sun sets …!
Besides surfing we offer different activities like DrySurf, skate- and yoga lessons. We are also working with a masseuse/ physiotherapist who can come to our surf school for an after-surf massage.
Around the corner from our surf school, you’ll find a tennis-, soccer- and basketball field – a good location to have some fun!
The island itself has a lot to offer, too: Find yourself exploring the desert and the volcanic landscape of Fuerteventura or the underwater world while snorkeling in our beautiful lagoons.
You prefer the night-time? Sweet! If you have some energy left after a day full of activity, then it’s time for Corralejo. The best way to start the evening is with a delicious dinner with your friends in our surfhouse and some drinks before you head off by cab. Bars, pubs, discos and live music – Corralejo has enough options for you to party until the next day. Dance through the night in this vivid town!

That’s what our guests say about our Surfcamp
During my two weeks in El Cotillo, we’ve stayed at the surf house. The housing is amazing, great roof terrace, even better breakfast and amazing dinner, which is homemade and varies from evening to evening.
It was my first Surf course ever, and I felt very well with the instructors. They are all very detailed and motivating, the ratio of instructor-student is perfect, thus learning surfing here really seems as easy as it looks 😉
Been many times to Fuerteventura for surfing and holidays, but FRESHSURF offered the best: good surfing guides, great food, a friendly team and I met new friends … what more do you what?
During our (a friend and myself) stay in El Cotillo, which is a very nice and relaxed village, we spend most of our time enjoying the surf lessons from FreshSurf. The staff is always friendly and nobody ever seemed to have an off-day, of course how could they…surf-fun and almost always good weather! The Surf School does mainly consist of German personell (which is of course not so strange..freshsurf.DE!), however they all speak fluently English! I would highly recommend to go to FreshSurf if you want to get into surfing.
