This is the place to be for some fun in big waves. El Cotillo is an all year around spot with smaller waves from June until September and some real big swell during the winter months.
A north-northeasterly wind works best here. Wind can get strong (above 20 knots) and gusty.
Powerful sideshore beachbreak and nice long waves. High tide is normally best.
In winter, the sandy bottom is very much washed out, producing powerful waves and new currents. Waves close out quite often when an overhead swell arrives. Not recommended for beginners!
There are plenty of options in El Cotillo.
If you stay in Cotillo, you can either call a taxi or arrange pickups with local kite schools. If you wanna explore different spots around the island, you may wanna rent a car.
Plenty of restaurants/bars in El Cotillo.
