Exploring the rock pools at the lagoons
We spent a few hours sunbathing and exploring the rock pools in the beautiful El Cotillo lagoon beaches. This was the first time we had been to the beach together for a year, which is pretty sad. We have pledged to go once a week from now on but we will see how that goes (we have said this before).
The lagoons are located north of the village of El Cotillo, on the road to the lighthouse. They also extend along the north shore almost to Corralejo.
There are lots of varied life forms in the rockpools. This time it was mainly various fish and some shrimps. In the past we have seen crabs, sea cucumbers, octopus and sea urchins. Some claim to have seen a sea snake but I don’t know how true that is.
As in other parts of Fuerteventura there are many stone circles that have been built over the years by sunbathers. These provide shelter from the wind and privacy when sunbathing. It is an area frequented by naturists quite often but as with most other beaches on the island, naturists and non-naturists seem to co-exist without any problems..
