Sitting proudly next to the mouth of the Guadiana River, close to the town of Ayamonte in the Andalusia community in Spain, is the wonderful island of Isla Canela. As well as offering stunning views of the neighbouring country of Portugal, an Isla Canela holiday is a popular choice with those visitors who want to be able to spend time relaxing in an uncrowded location with a handful of great activities on tap should the mood to be energetic arise. Visitors will find that an Isla Canela holiday rental villa will offer all of the amenities that you need to have a truly relaxing and memorable trip.
As well as being a great location for mixing with the locals (the island is where many Spanish citizens spend their holidays) there is a myriad of activities available for visitors to enjoy. This includes the likes of swimming, sailing, water skiing, windsurfing, diving, tennis, golf, paragliding, horse riding and cycling.
If you find that you are fully relaxed and ready to venture further afield than your Isla Canela holiday rental villa then it is suggested that you take the two hour journey north to the wonderful town of Aracena. Many people on an Isla Canela holiday flock to Aracena due to the fact that it is home to the spectacular cave system, the Gruta de las Maravillas. The story goes that the caves were discovered by a boy who was looking for his lost pig and visitors can now enjoy the wonderful coloured lights show which highlights the main sights to be found in the caves. On top of the Gruta de las Maravillas is the wonderful Aracena Castle and also worth seeing in the town during a visit is the church of Santa Maria de la Asuncion which dates back to the 16th century.
If booking an Isla Canela holiday rental villa is dependent on the weather then you will be delighted to hear that you can expect to enjoy hot summers and very mild winters. An Isla Canela holiday is very popular during the months of July and August when the temperature during the day can reach a very hot 31°C. The winter months of December and January see the temperature during daylight hours drop to between 10° and 16°C. The annual rainfall amount for the island is 14 inches.
Travellers on an Isla Canela holiday can begin their trip by arriving at Seville Airport (SVQ) which is approximately 97 miles away from the island. Air operators that offer regular, affordable flights to this part of Spain include Spanair, KLM, Ryanair, BMI and Iberia Airlines.
