Aguila Beach (Playa del Águila), also known as Playa de las Escaleras (Stairs Beach) due to the unique stairs that you take to reach it, is a remote and quiet beach on the west coast of Fuerteventura, in the north of the island.
It is a changeable beach that depends on the tides. At low tide, the beach shows a spectacular and wide esplanade of golden sand, but at high tide, the sea hides most of the sand, leaving a narrow stretch of sand and losing much of its charm. However, whether at high or low tide, the waves are never gentle.
You can reach it through a dirt road starting from the south of El Cotillo.
