Costa de Canyamel and Canyamel Beach

Costa de Canyamel and Canyamel Beach

The small sheltered resort of Canyamel, which you may also see written as both Costa de Canyamel or Playa de Canyamel, is quietly tucked away along the northern east coast of Majorca, approximately 10km to the south of the resort of Cala Ratjada, in the municipal district of Capdepera.
Backed by low mountains, Canyamel is famed on Mallorca for its wide sandy beach and fresh water torrente at one end. The Torrente de Canyamel actually rises some 8km inland from the beach, in the hills around the town of Arta. With its calm waters, and outstanding scenic beauty, it can be navigated as far inland as the small lake of s’Estany de Sa Torre, whose waters were ordered to become the property of the people of Canyamel by John II of Aragón in 1466.
