The calm pools at El Cotillo Beach & Lagoons make for great swimming or snorkeling, but be cautious as unexpected currents are common. Looking out across the water, you’ll see a lighthouse and, looking inland, a volcanic desert. This unique setting served as a movie set for a major production, “Exodus” by Ridley Scott. Although you’ll find one cafe, consider bringing a picnic or barbecue supplies. Its not uncommon to see clothing optional swimmers and sunbathers at this beach.
