Holidays to Isla Canela
Your coastal retreat to Isla Canela
On the border of Spain and Portugal and looking out to the North Atlantic Ocean is Isla Canela, a pleasurable destination to recharge your batteries or learn a new watersport. The beaches are sandy and the sun is almost guaranteed during the summer months, so all you need to focus on is deciding what to do. The popularity of this destination among travellers means that finding the accommodation you really want should be a simple task as well.
If you want an active holiday in Isla Canela, there will be plenty to keep you occupied and on the move. Kanela Sailing School offers the chance to learn how to windsurf and kitesurf, or experience a catamaran out on the warm sea. Kayaking and paddle boarding are two other activities that travellers of most ages can enjoy. Bikes can be rented at multiple locations to give you the freedom to explore on your own, and you can do the same on foot by following one of the various peaceful hiking routes. Approximately one hour’s drive along the coast is Laguna de El Portil Natural Reserve which lets you navigate a lagoon, quiet woodland and twisting footpaths. There are multiple golf courses dotted along the coast where you can squeeze in a quick nine or 18 holes, and you can rent clubs for convenience. Fishing, horse riding, boat tours and water parks are also available to please most ages.
Isla Canella holidays don’t pause when the sun goes down, as the nightlife is vibrant and varied. You can spend the evening at your chosen restaurant and enjoy the company of your fellow diners or head to a bar to mingle with locals. Themed bars serving cocktails and select music stretch along the coast to tempt you inside for a night of dancing and friendly discussion. For something a little closer to home, seek out a pub to settle in and watch live sport.
The variety of visitors that head to Isla Canela each year is reflected in the food served. Tapas is the obvious choice, and as the region is on the ocean you are certain to be served fresh seafood. The influence of the Mediterranean Sea is clear, as are other European nations including Italy’s pizzerias. Steak is big in nearby Portugal, and you can look forward to your preferred cut cooked just how you like in one of the various steakhouses. Eating and drinking are important parts of Spanish culture, so wherever you choose to stop for a quick break during the day you will almost certainly be able to grab a satisfying bite to eat.
