One of the main attractions of Isla Canela for tourists who decide to rent an apartment in this neighborhood are its beaches. Isla Canela has two beaches: one that receives the same name as the district, Isla Canela and Punta del Moral. This last beach is a fishing neighborhood that has become a big tourist complex. It is located southeast of Ayamonte, 6 kilometers from the border of the urban town.
Isla Canela on the other hand, has a funerary monument from Roman times called Mausoleo Tardorromano de la Barriada de Campo de Canela. It is a pantheon or family grave.
