El Cotillo Shops – from supermarkets to toy shops to banks

El Cotillo shops are good but it isn’t exactly a shopper’s 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:

Superdino Supermarket

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, bread and delicatessen counter.

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.
