Holidays in Isla Canela are all about beaches, golf and escape. Escape from the everyday pressures, escape from the daily grind and escape from the wind and the rain. In this most south westerly corner of Spain, right next to the Portuguese Algarve, you'll be able to get away from it all, and emerge, like a butterfly – full of new life under the warm Spanish sunshine.
Unlike other Spanish Costas, you won't find any overcrowded beaches thronging with tourists and towels here. With 7km of sands circling this little island, you'll easily find a private patch all of your own. So whether you're on your much anticipated summer holidays, or you snapped up one of the bargain holidays to Isla Canela you'll find yourself transported to an unspoiled part of Andalucia.
A purpose-built resort, with hotels and apartments built in a blend of Moorish and Andalucian styles you have all the modern conveniences on your doorstep. Chic restaurants, shops and bars around the marina, a yacht club offering boat rental and jet ski and canoeing excursions as well as 18-hole golf course. Up at the attractive club house you'll find a golf school, golf shop, bar, restaurant, swimming pool and even two bowling greens overlooked by a lovely, relaxing terrace. So even if golf's not your bag, there's plenty alternatives.
Cross over the small bridge from Isla Canela into the pretty market town and fishing port of Ayamonte and you'll discover many more shop, bars and restaurants. Spend a leisurely evening sampling the catch of the day followed by a stroll along the palm lined Paseo de la Ribiera which skirts the bustling harbour. Salud!
