On the outskirts of El Cotillo, at the foot of the lighthouse Faro del Tostón, you will find Los Charcos, a group of small white sand and clear water beaches that spreads along 4 kilometers of coastline forming a number of small natural pools.

CALETA DEL MARRAJO
This authentic natural paradise is located about a ten-minute drive north of El Cotillo, near the Tostón Lighthouse. This lonely and beautiful bay with crystalline waters and fine white sand, dotted with small shallow lagoons of calm waters and bordered by black lava rock formations, is the ideal beach for families with young children, who can safely snorkel, for couples in search of a romantic and quiet place or simply for people who want to leave everyday life behind and rediscover inner peace.
Los Lagos are a group of small coves on the outskirts of El Cotillo. The area is surrounded by a natural reef that protects its waters and prevents the formation of large waves.
Like the rest of the beaches in the area, the coves at Los Lagos have white sand and crystal clear waters. A number of characteristic large black rocks emerge from the water forming shallow lagoons ideal for a calm bath.
You can access Los Lagos by driving along the road that leads to the lighthouse Faro del Tostón. Parking near the area is always available.
A little further away, about 6 km south of El Cotillo, you will find Playa de Esquinzo, a 300 meter long sandy beach that is a solitary paradise for surfers or people seeking tranquility and retirement.
Surrounded by impressive cliffs about 15 meters high, the Playa de Esquinzo bay is immersed in a wild and romantic atmosphere. You can access the beach through a dirt path that borders the cliff and ends up with a difficult descent to the beach. As soon as you arrive, you’ll find all your efforts have been worth it.
If you are a surf lover, you should be aware of the strong sea current and the high waves this beach features. These two atributes, along with the presence of rocks in the water, make the pratice of water sports only recommended for highly skilled athletes and not for beginners.
