CALPE'S PEÑON DE IFACH ROCK CALPE BEACH
Almost 3000 years old, Calpe retains a sense of history and tradition. Best known for its emblematic Peñon de Ifach, a dominating granite rock towering over 330 metres, and its two fabulous, long white sandy ‘Blue Flag’ beaches, which are ideal for families.
Behind the beaches are the Salinas de Saladar, providing a haven for wildlife including pink flamingos & herons.
The renowned Calpe Marina serves one of the largest fishing ports in the area, with a fabulous fish market where you can watch the daily fish auctions and make your own purchase! There is an array of restaurants within the port area; where you can select your fish to be sent to the kitchen and be cooked!
Calpe has a bustling town centre with a gently sloping main street, offering superb shops, bars and restaurants, leading to the fabulous Old Town, with wide avenues and ancient architecture to appreciate.
Calpe enjoys several local fiestas every year, one of the most popular being its Oktoberfest!
