Cotillo and El Roque

 A perfect spot for kitesurfing  see video

 Cotillo is Located on the northwest coast of the island, it was once the seat of the Guanche (native peoples) tribal chiefs and has remained fairly undeveloped.
This fishing village has some of the prettiest beaches in the north and two village harbours, the old and the new, both have a small selection of restaurants with wonderful views especially at sunset.
To the left of the village as you enter are the long magnificent sandy beaches so loved by surfers, and to the right is the endless stretch of sandy coves and lagoons. Just before the long beaches you can see the little fortress “El Fortaleza Del Toston,” built in 1797 to warn of pirate attacks; nowadays it holds exhibitions for local artists.
It is possible to walk from El Fortaleza del Toston along the cliff top path to Playa de Esquinzo, a very interesting and quiet beach; it was a “sacred place” for the original inhabitants of the island.
On the lagoon you can visit the lighthouse which has been opened as a museum of traditional fishing.
The village retains its peaceful atmosphere, only getting really busy in August when the Fiesta takes place. Although the area receives many visitors year round, they tend to come for the day to the beaches and fresh fish restaurants and leave again after sunset. There are though an ever growing number of independent travellers who return again and again to the village for their holidays. Many foreigners have purchased here to take advantage of this and they receive a decent rental income from their properties.
A paradise for those who wants to practice a water sport, the village is also very popular for surfers, kitesurfers and stand up paddle boarders who want to stay in a place where they have good conditions on their doorstep.

An ideal location for a relaxing holiday, if you want some action you can go swimming, trekking, cycling, or horse riding. see links
