A quiet oasis surrounded by lush hills with stunning sea views. Canyamel is a small but charming resort located in a privileged enclave on the eastern coast of Mallorca. Many residents and visitors come here to enjoy tranquility, nature and luxury. Discover what makes this place so special!
Canyamel (honey cane in Catalan) owes its name to the sugar cane that was formerly grown in this region. The small town located in the municipality of Capdepera is surrounded by tree-covered hills. Through it flows the Torrente de Canyamel that divides the town into the southern and northern part. The first one is more touristy with many hotels and a pedestrian area while the other half around Cap Vermell is more fashionable and luxurious. There you can find many beautiful villas, a golf course and the impressive caves of Artà. The town also has a stunning, about 3oo metre long beach with both sandy and rocky parts, that connects to the Torrente de Canyamel river. The small, less-developed town enjoys a good reputation among numerous local and international visitors that come every year seeking relaxation, and natural beauty.
