Beach of Canyamel
The Playa de Canyamel is located between Cala Ratjada and Cala Millor. The area of Canyamel was historically a place with sugarcane plantations and bee farms, hence the name of cana (sugarcane) and miel (honey). The beach itself is roughly 520 meters in length (give or take some) and is a blue flag beach surrounded by nature. A majority of the beach area is white sand that goes into clear blue waters. The area is great for snorkeling.
In the way it is situated, this beach can occasionally receive strong winds and bigger waves and as it is a tourist destination with primarily hotels, it can get very busy during summer months. You will find facilities along the beach, including showers and public toilets. There are areas, as with most beaches, to rent lounge chairs and umbrellas, as well as paddle boats, canoes and SUP boards.
Along the promenade, right next to the beach, at least along half of it, you'll find beachfront restaurants. Here you will also find a wooden boardwalk with wheelchair accessibility. During the summer months, a lifeguard is on duty.
The beach is easily accessible by car and there is plenty of free parking along the streets next to the beach, depending on time of day and season.
Canyamel is popular with German, Swiss and mainland Spanish tourists as the small town itself holds mostly hotels and apartments and a few stores. Overall it is family friendly, and also visited by elderly couples and pensioners.
