A walk along the beach to Torino’s Beach Bar El Cotillo

A few weeks ago I took a walk from the first beach to the north of the village, by the Marfolin Apartments. I walked long the beaches to Playa de la Concha and then continued on to what I know as Caleton beach – called that because of the Caleton apartments right by the beach.

On Caleton beach I showed the rock pool that always forms on the lefty hand side at low tide, that always have lots of fish in it.

I then walked back towards La Concha beach, through the car park to the rear and visited Torino’s beach bar for a well deserved cold coke. Torino’s had just reopened after the lockdown.

Torino’s beach bar El Cotillo (Bar Torino El Cotillo) has been in existence for many years and is a favorite of many visitors to the village. It is run by Torino (no surprise there) and his English wife, Michelle. Both of their daughters have been involved in working there and also Torino’s brother. It is a real family business.

There were more people on the beach than I expected to be honest, particularly as at that stage tourists were not coming back because there were no flights.

This has to be one of the nicest walks in El Cotillo, with the reward of a drink or something to eat at the end.
