Golf: There are 8 high quality golf courses within 30 minutes drive of Isla Canela. Compared to the western Algarve and the Costa del Sol, Costa de la Luz – Huelva and the Eastern Algarve are as yet ‘undiscovered’. Green fees are lower as the courses are less crowded and less busy making it much easier to get a start time that you want and to be able to get round in reasonable time without delays.
The course at Isla Canela is set on the edge of the ‘marismas’, the salt-water marshes that form much of the terrain of Isla Canela and which have the benefit of protected status as natural parks. Like the ‘marismas’, the course at Isla Canela is flat and open and makes for easy walking – but do not take it lightly! When he designed the course in 1993, Juan Catarineü incorporated the ponds and gullies that serve as the drainage system of the ‘marismas’ to provide natural hazards that always seem to be just where you don’t want them. The Isla Canela course is not particularly long but it rewards straight play as any shots off-line are penalised by the array of eucalyptus and palms that characterise the scenery. Water comes into play on no fewer than 10 holes.

We provide as much information as our guests need and we can send much more information about Ayamonte and our apartment by email if requested. All guests will have access to a wide variety of home comforts that we enjoy many times a year when we visit. However, during your stay we will not be on hand, but are a phone call away.

Hi, I'm Marc. I am a marketing consultant running my own business and a very keen golfer. My wife, Ann, and I bought this apartment 10 years ago and have been visiting at least 3 times a year ever since. We've brought our children, friends and family to the apartment and have loved every minute of it. Now we are opening it up to let others enjoy it too. It really was a gem of a find all those years ago and it just keeps getting better. We hope you enjoy it too.
