Advice on which area?

Hi all,

I have been looking at visiting this area for a good while and it looks like we may be able to visit for 4 nights at the end of the month. We will be travelling with 2 of our children who are 9 & 15 and flying in to Faro. I wondered if anyone could offer advice on which area to stay please? I like the sound of Ayamonte as we want to be within walking distance to restaurants for the evening but we would like to visit the beach too - I believe its around 10 mins in the car? I also like the sound of the beach resorts - Isla Canela - and there are lots of nice spacious apartments for rent in that area, but I wonder are there any restaurants which we could walk to in the evening? Could anyone tell me if Isla Canela has the restaurants Im looking for?

Many thanks for any help :-)

For Playa Canela, if you look at the area near The Barcelo Hotel you will find several restaurants/chiringuitos within easy walking distance.

You also have the option of going to the marina which is a couple of minutes away by car.

Make sure you check out the car hire well. Cross-border hire can present little challenges if not reading the T and Cs properly.

I would try and find somewhere to rent in Ayamonte as there are not many restaurants at Isla Canela , more choice in Ayamonte . You can drive down and park up for the beach.
