El Cotillo shops are good but it isn’t exactly a shoppers’ paradise. It does have shops that sell most things needed on a day-to-day basis. If you want “proper” shopping you either need to go to Corralejo or the capital, Puerto del Rosario.
El Cotillo shops include supermarkets (large and small), ferreterias (hardware), surfing, kitesurfing, bike hire, toys, 3 hairdressers, souvenir, Aloe Vera, clothes, internet, estate agent and a bank (with a cash machine). There is also a walk-in doctors surgery. The nearest pharmacy is in Lajares.
Small Selection of El Cotillo Shops:
This is on the right-hand side, just as you come into El Cotillo. It is a pretty good shop and sells most things. It has fresh fruit and vegetables as well as a fresh meat and delicatessen counter.
This is a small supermarket located between the old and the new harbours. It is only small but it does stock a surprisingly large range of stuff.
La Caixa Bank
This is located in the main street into the village, on the right after passing the football ground. It has one of the two cash machines located in the village. The other is outside the entrcne to the Cotillo Beach Hotel..
La Tia ITXI – Toy Shop
Lovely toy shop with lots of unusual items located opposite La Caixa bank.
La Puntilla – home-made ice cream shop
This shop sells some lovely home-made ice cream with some really unusual flavours. Well worth buying one and eating it sitting on the rocks opposite watching the sea. You can find it by walking from the old harbour north around the headland.
El Faro – Marco’s Hairdressers
Opposite the football ground. If you need your hair cut while you are here then give Marco’s a try. Both men and women’s hairdressing.
