Turtle rescued at El Jablito
A Loggerhead Turtle was rescued from a fishing net at El Jablito (near Parque Holandes) by a local, who also found another dead turtle in the same net. After being seen by a Vet, the turtle was transferred to the centre for the recovery and conservation of Turtles in Morro Jable due to its poor health and low weight.

El Cotillo Beach and Lagoons received 2nd place amongst Spain’s beaches in Tripadvisor’s 2016 Travellers’ Choice Awards behind Playa de Ses Illetes in Formentera (Balearic Islands).
