Amy Adejokun Expert destination Spain

The village of Canyamel, a relatively small destination with several hotels of various sizes, is a million miles away from the crowds of tourists in the major seaside resorts of Majorca. The surrounding countryside is home to charming fincas (country estates), such as Can Simoneta. Although the cove is admittedly small, it is ideal for swimming. It is in Canyamel that you will find the Caves of Arta, some of the most well-known in Majorca.

Canyamel: what to do?

There is not much to do in the area as it is very small.

There is a very small pedestrian zone with an ice cream parlour, two little supermarkets, a shop and several beach stalls. The sandy beach of Canyamel is delightful. Nearby you will also find the 'Torrente de Canyamel' and the famous Caves of Arta. Built in the 13th century, the 23-metre high Canyamel Tower is also worth seeing.

  • The Caves of Arta.
  • The location far from Palma and the airport.


Due to the relatively isolated location, it is advisable to hire a car to explore the surrounding areas. It will come as no surprise to hear that this place isn't recommended for those who enjoy a lively nightlife, but it is great for those looking for peace and relaxation.
