Location

El Cotillo

The charming fishing village of El Cotillo is located in Fuerteventura Northwest, about 35 kilometers from Puerto del Rosario and about 20 kilometers from Corralejo. The picturesque town offers a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere with a delightful little town centre and several authentic Canarian restaurants overlooking a beautiful old harbor.

Situated within the characteristically rough and rustic volcanic landscapes of the Canary Islands, El Cotillo is known to have the island’s most gorgeous beaches and most exquisite lagoons. While some of them are sheltered by an outer reef, providing calm waters ideal for swimming, snorkeling, or SUP-ing, others offer great first-time surfer conditions with user-friendly waves.

With the famous ‘north track’ just a stone’s through away, advanced surfers also get to surf their heart out on some of the world’s most perfect and critical waves. Fuerteventura is truly suited to all surfing abilities, and with mild temperatures and warm waters all year round, the island makes for the perfect winter escape and sunny summer getaway!

Star Surf Camps

Star Surf Camps have chosen their surf house location on Fuerteventura carefully and have found in El Cotillo, in the northwest of the island, a true surfer’s paradise!

From their surf house, they have easy access to the famous north track, 270 degrees of surf-able coast with more than 30 surf spots. The surf holiday guests can join them here on a real surf trip in search of the day’s best waves, checking surf forecasts frequently, and being part of a group of fun, relaxed, and like-minded surfers.

The amazing surf is not all Fuerteventura has to offer: An amazing landscape lies right in front of the surf house with volcanoes to climb, and beautiful, turquoise lagoons to explore! So, whether you're looking for more action after your surf lessons or just want to relax on the beach, swim, or snorkel, it’s all just a stone’s throw from Star Surf Camps' door!

Should you not be planning on hiring a car, the closest bus stop is only 100 meters from the surf house and Corralejo or Puerto del Rosario are in easy driving distance for an afternoon of shopping or a night out on the town. On top of that, public transport is comparatively cheap, regular, and easy to use, so you’ll get to wherever you want to be in no time. A supermarket that’s open seven days a week from 08:00 to 22:00 is right across the road together with a bike rental, car hire, massage studio, and Segway rental shops.

We are lucky to have the most stunning beaches at our doorsteps. On the right hand side we have El Cotillos' famous lagoons with calm protected waters from the outer reef, and on the left facing west we have the beautiful beaches of Piedra Playa. Long beaches with constant waves to have a fun and safe start into your new venture of the sport.

Things to do (optional)

Climbing a volcano

One of the highest volcanoes on the island is situated right on a doorstep of the villa. La montaña Escanfraga measures 533 meters and is definitely worth walking up. Take some beers and enjoy a sunset or just the view on the surrounding landscape. If you go around sunset, make sure you get down before dark or take a torch. The walk from the villa to the mountain takes about 30 minutes, going up another 45 minutes. It’s best to wear proper shoes since there isn’t a real path going up the volcanoes.

Have a little treat at the local cafés

Have a little snack after your surf lessons? Not far away from Star Surf School there is a very popular little bakery in Cotillo: La Pasteleria Francesca or El Goloso. They also have a small affiliate in Lajares. Even if you don't have a sweet tooth, there’s plenty of choice for an after-surf snack or just a healthy lunch. Sandwiches, quiches, all kinds of bread, teas, smoothies, coffees, etc.

Definitely try the almond croissant. It’s that good that usually they run out of them long before lunchtime, or stop by fabulous ‘Ocean Deli’ along the road, close to the School. They serve a great variety of sandwiches, wraps, curry, burgers, lasagna, and freshly baked cake.

Stroll around the town

A 10-minute walk to the west of Star Surf School, you find the Toston tower of defense next to the golden surf beach of El Cotillo. The history of the castle begins in the fifteenth century with the conquest of the island by the Spanish crown, becoming a bastion to defend the coast from pirate attacks. The castle was constructed on the ruins of the old defending castle (Rico Roque) and was built to defend the port of El Cotillo, which was very important for trade in cochineal, grain, and livestock.

Visit the lagoons of El Cotillo and go snorkeling

The white sand and crystal clear turquoise water don't just look great on a picture. If you want to make your friends at home jealous, it’s also the most beautiful place to discover aquatic life on this island. Pop by Star Surf School shop right next to the beach in Cotillo Lagos to rent your snorkel equipment and discover the underwater world.
