What to see in Isla Canela – Natural attractions – Watch The Clam Fishing

fishermen-isla-canelaFirst thing in the morning, just opposite our apartment, you will see men wade into the sea and start fishing just off the shoreline. With large rake style nets they seem to comb the sea floor collecting coquinas, a local clam, which are a speciality of the region.

Depending on the tide the fishermen will stay for a few hours and then they will be gone. Razor clams are also fished here but it seems dependant on the tide.

It really is quite interesting to watch and they are quite used to tourists following them along the shore taking photographs. As long as we all buy and eat them in the local bars I am sure they don’t mind!
