Explore Spain with Ayamonte holidays
Ayamonte is a charming town in the Huelva province of Andalucia. The centre of the town is its well-preserved medieval quarter, featuring narrow winding streets and beautiful historic buildings. Accommodation is plentiful, with everything on offer from cheap and cheerful guesthouses to luxurious hotels with pools and spa facilities. For more independent Ayamonte holidays, you could rent a sleek modern self-catered apartment or a traditional villa.
Enjoy beautiful beaches with holidays in Ayamonte
In the north of the town a modern bridge has been built over the Guadiana River giving easy access to Portugal, although the traditional ferry that for centuries linked the two countries still runs between Ayamonte and Vila Real de Santo Antonio. Holidays in Ayamonte mean that it’s also really easy to visit Portugal at the same time, perhaps for some sightseeing or shopping.
Isla Canela is the beach area of Ayamonte and is reached by a causeway through the Maismas del Guadiana (salt marshes). The marshes themselves are home to lots of fascinating wildlife, particularly waterfowl such as herons and flamingos. Isla Canela offers several kilometres of sandy beach and is perfect for windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing or just a lazy day enjoying the sunshine. The area also boasts several golf courses, including one actually built into the marshes. The beach is beautifully unspoiled and generally considered to be one of the best in Spain.
Cycling is a popular activity in Ayamonte, with bikes being easy to rent and plenty of routes and flat areas around the Guadiana river delta and the saltmarshes to explore. There’s the Via Verde tour especially for birdwatching, or a 5km ride down Isla Canela’s boulevard which runs alongside the gorgeous beach. The sunny climate is great for getting out and about and if you don’t fancy cycling there are plenty of routes and walks that can be explored on foot at a more leisurely pace.
