Costa de la Luz: Costa de la Luz, the Coast of Light, is a unique and beautiful area of Spain. It is largely untouched and has been spared the mass tourist exploitation that many other coasts of Spain have suffered.
Here the original culture and heritage of the local people is still very much present and the land holds large national parks. Discover a warm and friendly countryside next to the glittering Atlantic, bathed in the light of the Spanish sun.
The Isla Canela resort comprises of a Golf course, vast fine sandy beaches, a modern leisure marina, luxury hotels, small commercial centres, restaurants and cafes. It is also home to a small fishing village as well as a large protected bird sanctuary.
Ayamonte: Ayamonte stands high above the river Guadiana. It is a frontier town and 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 travelers, 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.
The nobleness and age of the town are made clearly evident by its monuments and ruins. The ruined castle has Roman foundations, an Arab tower and the remains of Baroque decoration.
Golf in the Costa de la Luz: There are about 25 golf courses on the Costa de la Luz! In the province of Huelva alone, within half an hour away by car, there are eight quality golf courses to choose from. The dry and sunny climate make the region superbly suited for year-round golfing and the sport has been growing steadily in the region during the past 20 years because of it.
As if all the golf courses on the Costa de la Luz and around Seville were not enough there is also all the courses on the Portuguese Algarve. Here there are 24 courses of different style and difficulty within one hours drive of Isla Canela.
A nice place for my vacation, quiet and the beach nearby.

The terrace is fantastic and the views are of the marina.
I spent my summer holidays in this apartment at 2009, 2010 e 2011. I always remained very pleased. The listing description was 100% accurate regarding the location, layout, facilities, etc.. Everything was very clean and well maintained, including common outdoor spaces, pool and lift.
I have already recommended this apartment to friends and relatives.
Mike and Adele are very friendly.
