On the northern outskirts of the former fishing village El Cotillo you will the beach La Concha with lagoons that are perfect to enjoy the calm water. In the south the beach consists of a steep coast from where you can overlook the ocean.

El Cotillo has some of the most breathtaking sunsets on the island and its landscape is made up of a moon-like terrain, volcanos and rock formations. To some, the landscape might seem a bit dry and sad at first because of the lack of green. If you take a closer look, you will discover loads of hidden treasures even in that kind of landscape. During your vacation on the island you will definitely have time to focus just on yourself and your personal needs.

Activities in and around the Surfcamp

FreshSurf is so much more than surfing

In and around El Cotillo there is so much else you can do apart from surfing. Does not matter what you are searching for, we will be able to find something entertaining for you to do: diving, snorkeling, horseback riding, yoga, wind surfing, kiting, hiking and skating. If you are up for some action, this is the place to be.

If surfing was already enough action for you, you can have a more relaxed afternoon in Corralejo, shop for souvenirs and just have a walk around.

If you are up for a party, Corralejo is the place to be on a Friday and Saturday night.  There is a great mix of bars and clubs, so if you just want to go for a drink or stay out late, you will find the right thing for yourself.
