Cotillo Surf Guide

Cotillo in Fuerteventura is an exposed beach break that has consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the east with some shelter here from north winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west. The beach break provides left and right handers. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide.
