First did the walk to the top of the Penon when I was 35 then again when I was 62 and boy do you then know the difference between those age groups!!!! It is hard going whatever your age but the views from the summit are spectacular and well worth the effort.

All the info and reviews available here are somewhat accurate so i won't repeat anything that has already been said. Just a few words: - the whole experience is divided in 2 parts - before the tunnel and after the tunnel. Before the tunnel is a good walk uphill, but after the tunnel - it turns into a walk on...

The first part of the walk up the Penon is easy and takes you through some beautiful vegetation, plants and trees with stunning views. On a sunny day the views across Calpe and towards the Montgo mountain are stunning. Wear sensible walking shoes and take water. I have to admit not getting beyond the tunnel as the going is a...

The rock is vast and the walk is suitable for most people including partially disabled. After the visitors centre the walking gets more steep and the tunnel through the rock is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.

Walked along the south side between the Penyal D'Ifach & the sea then did the more adventurous walk to the summit, a two hour round trip (it is free to do)

Great hike. The first part of the hike is accessible for all. The steeper parts are best left to folks with confidence and the appropriate gear. There are parts of it that are very dangerous. Signs are posted. Go as far as you can, worth the views, just be careful!

Ventured up the rock with a friend early morning in august! Due to heat, it is best to go morning or eve, the climb is a challenge and not for the faint hearted! Great day but it could be considered dangerous with the climb being slippy without barriers if you were to fall. Worth every second though and the view... More

This is a great experience and piece of nature. Anybody van hike a certain way up and it is fairly simple until you get to the tunnel and the views are great even from there. Once you get to the tunnel, things get pretty dangerous and you will need to bring hiking shoes or great athletic shoes with serious grip.... More
