Stunning views over Calpe, Moraira and Benidorm! You can hike the Ifach till a tunnel along a foothpath. This will take you half an our (one way). From here nice view, and this is the more touristic walk. If you go through the tunnel, it is a more challenging hike with rough paths, rocks, heights and this is for the... More

The park is free to enter and the paths are fairly easy to walk on (not for the infirm) views are great. It is steep, probably best to wear trainers, the tunnel near the top is a bit slippy, but there is a rope to hold onto. You can continue past the tunnel but would need proper walking shoes and...

We only walked as far as the visitor centre as my mum, who has Parkinson's, was with us. Although the path is steep it is fairly smooth and the view is spectacular even if you only get this far. We went early morning to enjoy it before the heat of the day.

Had a nice walk up - needed trainers definitely! Not quite as strenuous as thought it would be! The path abruptly ended after the tunnel and there was a padlocked gate, people were jumping over it but it looked a bit rocky and unsafe so turned back. Definitely worth it as great views.

Absolutely beautiful limestone historical rock, consisting of specialised plants, animals, creatures, birds of prey and natural habitats, given natural park status. Amusingly, lots of stray cats who have settled in around the bottom of the rock. It's a long way up with paved footway most of the way up and places to stop and take photographs, however, on passing through... More

Very nice hike. Moderately difficult. Should not be done on slippers. You need at least good, comfortable walking shoes. I 'heard' it is closed to the public (2015) from the tunnel on. But you can see people at the top everyday. Up to you if you go around the barricade at your own risk. I know from hikes in previous... More

The view and the park are beautiful. the tourists and the cats though are not. Please do not cross the closed gate! You could hike up to the top earlier (and some people still do) but I would not recommend to do it.

Very nice walk along the Mediterranean and the Ifach rock. The is a small beach at the entrance where people depart to snorkel. The beach bar is also popular.

Having taken my fiance to Spain on several occasions I had no doubt the most romantic place was Calpe. The great news was that she said yes, when I finally posed the question. The place has a magic which plays on both sexes and sure enough it worked:-)
