Canyamel holidays are a real treat, and not just because the resort takes its name from the days when it was a centre for sugar cane production – some people still affectionately refer to Canyamel as Caramel. This relaxed coastal resort on the island’s northeast coast is a great choice for low-key holidays where the focus is on the sun and surf. The village, which includes beautiful archaeological sites, has a picturesque location, set between a Blue Flag beach and pine-covered mountains.
Some great facilities mean that Canyamel holidays are perfect for sporty types, who can play a round of golf or tennis, or swim to their heart’s content. Many, however, choose to spend their time simply unwinding, strolling through the village or lounging by the beach, sipping cocktails at sunset. Add delicious restaurants into the mix and it’s easy to see why holidays to Canyamel are the stuff that sweet dreams are made of.
Perfect your swing
Canyamel is home to an 18-hole golf course, and many people come here specifically to tee off. The scenery is beautiful – on a clear day, you can see to Menorca.
Marvel at the tower
Canyamel’s striking 23-metre-tall Gothic tower has three floors displaying different exhibits where you can learn about the local history, ethnography and arts scene.
Lounge on the beach
The main beach is a pretty sand-and-pebble Blue-Flag stretch. Rent umbrellas and sunloungers and settle in for the day – there’s a choice of cafés.
