A very enjoyable visit with a decent challenging walk. The views from the top of the rock were fantastic and the signs both informative and adequate. The 'spring' seagull warnings were very relevant.

You can get half way up very easily. The tunnel is a bit slippery and beyond that is described as very dangerous. You certainly need a head for heights and be happy using a rope to stop you slipping - it's a long way down. Don't go beyond the tunnel if you're not happy with big drops, sure of foot... More

The main attraction in this nature reserve is the Penyal d'Ifac - which is, basically, a great big rock protruding out the ground like some giant tooth! I'm just glad that's it's not been extracted! The park information office is situated at the base of the rock and the walk to there is easy and fully accessible by those with... More

We had rented a villa in Calpe and were trying to find some free things to do! We decided that this would be a good experience and we underestimated it by far! It took us two and a half hours on the way up and an hour and a half on the way down. But the 2 and a half... More

If you are in Calpe then go up this rock! It is free with great views! The main path to the tunnel two thirds of the way up is easy enough, but the path in the tunnel is slippy and on the other side for the last third is a little dangerous. Serious shoes only - not flip flops as... More

So scenic, lovely views of the sea and back to Calpe. Just wish they had seats along the promenade walk not just the wall.

A steep climb but manageable if reasonably fit to get spectacular views of the coast and surroundings

great place for families to go. plenty to do around the area. we had a car and travelled around quite a bit. some nice places to eat locally. can recommend climbing the rock, but not for the feint hearted! its not an easy climb, but worth it.
