The sleepy fishing village is so laid-back it’s practically horizontal, and has managed to build its own tourist industry without resorting to the kind of mass construction that’s plagued some other towns. It’s a great spot for surfing, strolling, or simply enjoying some freshly caught seafood. The town’s open-air gallery, Calle Muelle Pescadroes, also features some excellent local art. Find El Cotillo on the island’s northwest coast, about 40 minutes from the airport.
