Calpe is overlooked by the towering Penon de Ifach ("rock of the north"), which rises to 335 metres. It is one of the Costa Blanca's most famous landmarks and walking to the top of this huge, chalky rock jutting out of the sea is a rewarding experience as you'll be exploring Spain's smallest nature reserve. You'll pass through a tunnel into a protected world of rare plant species and thousands of sea birds including cormorants, peregrine falcons and a huge colony of shrieking seagulls.

We run a minibus down to the town 5 days a week, where you will find modern buildings and wide avenues harmonizing with an ancient fishing village, where locals are proud of their past, yet welcome tourists and visitors with warm-hearted hospitality. You can enjoy a morning browsing in the wide range of shops, from exclusive boutiques to Calpe's own Gallarias department store, relax with a coffee at a beach cafe, or stroll along the beautiful promenade to take in the activity at the busy fishing port and marina. On Saturday mornings most of the town centre is taken over by the lively street market which has something for everyone.

The town beach is at the end of the main shopping street, a large beach with safe swimming, football and volleyball nets. The harbour retains its fishing heritage, has a small sandy beach and is renowned for its outstanding seafood restaurants. The main beach is set in a large bay with safe swimming and a variety of restaurants, bars and shops overlooked by the Penon d' ifach or Rock of Ifach.

The town boasts a range of sporting facilities from golf and tennis to sailing or rock climbing. There are the annual fiestas including the Moors and Christians and San Juan and and a cultural centre which holds many concerts and exhibitions. Calpe also has a University of the 3rd Age to keep older residents on their toes.
