Cofete sits in one of the most isolated corners of Fuerteventura. Access to this area is only via one of the small dirt tracks but it's still well worth the effort just for the views. But do remember to take some supplies with you!
As you pass the highest point between the peaks of Pico de la Zara and Frail you are rewarded with spectacular views of the north and south of the island. Another place worth a visit in the area is villa winter - of Gustav Winter. This house stands on a fenced piece of land the same shape as Fuerteventura and the position of the building on the plot is the same as its location on the island.
Originally designed as a manor house, the house of winters was intended to ensure land cultivation in that region. Many people used to live there in almost total isolation at a time when agriculture, animal farming and cheese making were only just developing.
The town itself is almost a ghost town and many of the owners only use the houses there as weekend retreats, although there are a few locals that live there on a permanent basis. As time passes more and more houses are springing up.
Cofete town makes an ideal stop off point for day trippers exhausted from the rough tracks and the climb up the mountain, there is a small bar in town should you need some 'liquid refreshment'.
