    It's a pleasure to buy your own fresh fish, it is delicious and very cheap.
    Ayamonte is an important fishing port. Its maritime character is further enhanced by its dockyards and other naval trappings.
    During the summer months the ferry which connects it to neighbouring Portugal sees a continual coming and going of travellers, and the town becomes especially lively. In Ayamonte, there are neatly whitewashed houses, pleasant squares, Baroque churches and some traces of the Manueline style owing to the influence of its proximity to Portugal. There is also a beautiful promenade along the harbour which is lined with palm trees called the Paseo de la Ribera, as well as stepped streets that are terribly steep, and some aristocratic mansions and palaces.

    Seville is the Capital of Andalusia, just little over an hour from Isla Canela.
    It is very hot in summer but mild in winter. Here you will taste spanish culture, flamenco, "sevillanas", monumental architecture and numerous Tapa’s and restaurants bars along the narrow streets where you can sample excellent food.

    Isla Canela enjoys excellent communications with Spain, Portugal and the rest of Europe. The closest airport is Faro in Portugal, just 45 minutes away by car along a scenic motorway. Entering Spain via the bridge at Ayamonte there are no customs or border controls making travel swift. Several airlines fly to Faro from many airports in the UK and the flight time is fairly short.
    With the recent boom in low cost air travel getting to Faro has never been easier or cheaper. Easyjet and Jet2 fly to Faro several times a day. This makes Isla Canela an ideal place to holiday.
    The second closest airport is Seville which is about ninety minutes away by car. A third option is flying to Jerez de la Frontera further down the Costa de la Luz. The distance to Jerez is about 2 hours and 20 minutes.

    The 18 hole, par 72 links golf course on the island was completed in 1994. It is well established and popular with residents on the island, visitors and holidaymakers alike. Set in a beautiful landscape dotted with olive, orange and eucalyptus trees, it offers challenging and entertaining play on its gentle sloped dunes.
