Your guide to Isla Canela holidays
With the Spanish mainland just 15 minutes away, a holiday in Isla Canela offers you the best of both worlds. Enjoy idyllic laid-back life on the island or head to the mainland for historic Andalusian heritage and cosmopolitan Spanish cities. Back on Isla Canela, you can hit the beach, try one of the many water sports or explore the wetland areas. A well-stocked marina full of yachts and sporting boats offers the chance to take a boat trip, book a fishing excursion or hire a canoe. Tennis courts and a golf courses keep sporty holidaymakers happy, while the mild Atlantic breezes provide the perfect weather for sailing.
Further afield, the nearby town of Ayamonte is just a 15-minute drive away and is the perfect place for some chilled out retail therapy. Explore the narrow streets, dotted with boutiques, or browse the food market for some local produce and tasty treats.
Isla Canela’s Blue Flag beach guarantees you pristine sands and clean waters. Ideal for families, the calm, shallow seas are fantastic for a refreshing swim or paddle. Atlantic breezes keep the hot summers from getting too uncomfortable and provide plenty of options for water sports fans. Colourful umbrellas and sun loungers line the 6km length of sandy coast, meaning there’s always a place to relax or cool off in the shade. The vibrant colours of the umbrellas are perfectly matched by the multi-coloured kites lifting kitesurfers above the waves. With water sports centres offering lessons in everything from sailing to windsurfing and, of course, kite surfing, there’s ample opportunity to take up a new hobby on a holiday to Isla Canela. If all that sounds far too energetic, relax on the sands, soak up the sun and enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of the beachside restaurants.
