Canyamel is a pleasant resort on the east coast of Majorca. Located between Cala Millor and Cala Ratjada and framed by pine woods, Canyamel was once a small village earning a living from the sea and from the palms that are found in abundance. It is a relaxed resort favoured by families and couples. There are several soft sandy beaches lapped by gentle waves which have great appeal for the former, while the peaceful atmosphere appeals to the latter. A variety of water sports are available from the beach. The golf courses in the area are an added attraction. As well as sandy beaches, there are rocky coves which are ideal for snorkelling and diving. The natural beauty of the area can be explored on foot as there are many walking trails. Alternatively, you can hire cycles or even horses. For good views, visit the remains of the eleventh-century defence tower. Close to the resort are the Cuevas de Arta which is well worth visiting. The lighting of the stalactites and the stalagmites is otherworldly and will be enjoyed by adults and children alike.
Hotels and apartments, some beachfront and others in the resort, provide a range of tariffs that cater for most budgets. Restaurants are plentiful and the promenade has its fair share with many serving traditional island food. It is always possible to find familiar foods for the less adventurous palate. Local wines are as pleasing to the taste buds as they are to the pocket. There are shops supplying all your holiday needs but if more is needed, you can always take the bus to Cala Millor. If you enjoy markets, the nearest one is Son Severa and further afield, Manacor. Canyamel nightlife is pretty low key. For a party atmosphere, head for the more gregarious resort of Cala Millor.
The holiday season opens in April and closes at the end of October. Temperatures rise from twenty into the thirties in the middle of summer. Several low-cost airlines fly to Palma from regional airports. You can check on the Cheekytrip website for the availabilty of holidays from your local airport.
