Fuerteventura. El Cotillo And Surroundings Of Corralejo. P.2.

We arrived in El Cotillo

 - a small fishing town.
There are no special attractions except for the old fortification tower El Toston.
The tower was built in the XVIII century and served as a vantage point in order to prevent pirate attacks.
Here it is.

But in fact, people do not come here because of this tower. Some people come for surfing, some - because of the good fish restaurants.

Generally, there's a nice atmosphere.
I recommend you to visit it.
Although, there are tourists (not a lot of them, mostly, surfers), and hotels are mainly tiny.

And the views from those restaurants and cafes are very nice - the sun, rocks, and waves.
And the power of the ocean in all its glory!
We liked it.

Then we went towards the lighthouse.
Which, in addition to its primary function, is also a fishing museum.
We did not go inside. Local museums seemed to me like a scam, ugh...
By the way - the road to the lighthouse was paved, and, probably, recently.
Views around the lighthouse are incredible...

In some places, you can find small lagoons with sand among the lava, without large waves, and with very clear water. And we saw divers in several places like this.

And they are not just small lagoons - sometimes, they turn into rather large beaches.

And there were so many nudists!!!
For some reason, there were more of them than on other beaches (although, we didn't see a single beach there without them!!!).
Some of the nudists dig themselves in...

Next to this beach, there was either a hotel or someone's house. Very interesting architecture.
