Summary of the Beach Inspectors

The beach of Canyamel lies in the heart of the small holiday resort of the same name and is also in the middle of a nature reserve. At one end, the stream of Torrent de Canyamel flows into the sea here. From the beach, walkers can explore the surrounding forest areas, the outskirts of which provide natural shade. A small hire centre offers water sports activities and a few beach restaurants provide sustenance. There are good bathing conditions and the special charm of this spacious, sandy beach is especially appreciated by holidaymakers staying in the nearby large hotels. Many of them are so fond of Playa de Canyamel that they have been coming here for years.

Playa de Canyamel - Spacious, centrally located, sandy beach in a nature reserve

The beach of Canyamel is situated in Majorca in the small holiday resort of the same name. It extends over almost 600 metres and the area of light sand is up to 80 metres wide at its largest point. At the north-eastern end the stream of Torrent de Canyamel flows into the sea here, but only if there is enough water in it, which is often not the case in the summer. Nonetheless, a footbridge has been built here, which ensures that the other side can be reached on dry ground at any time of year. In the background, and also in the middle and at the other end of the beach there are parts of forest that are under conservation and provide protection for plants and animals.

The surrounding landscape is hilly with comparatively few buildings. As well as some villas there are a few large hotel buildings, but they are not close enough to the beach to be seen as a disruption. You can take leisurely walks along the river and in the forest, where the trees provide good protection from the sun in places. A nice footpath also leads along the water to the harbour. However, it is very rocky and you will need sturdy footwear.

The beach itself is spacious and the soft sandy area offers plenty of space to spread out, even in peak season. There are also numerous loungers and beach umbrellas for hire, but when it's busy they quickly run out. In many places trees stand right next to the beach and provide additional shade. There are several beach restaurants and a water sports operator with a small range of equipment - you can choose between pedal boats, canoes and SUPs. It's striking that there are a large number of regular visitors who are so captivated by Playa de Canyamel's special charm that they come back every year.
