What a lovely place to walk around. It's all on the level ,so accessible for all, with seating around for you sit and watch the world go by. The boats all travel past and you are at the bottom of the Gibraltar rock. Nice to fill in a little free time.

It's a great way to spend a few hours in contact with nature, and the hike itself is very rewarding once you make it to the top. it starts as a steep walk until you reach a tunnel. It is advisable that you follow the warning sign and only go further if you are wearing proper footwear, as you will... More

When you arrive and read the signs advising proper foot wear for the climb DO ensure you are wearing good walking or hiking shoes/boots as the terrain becomes very challenging after the tunnel!! The signs also advise allowing two hours for the trip - this means, for most people two hours up and two hours down! The first part of... More

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!
