A good walk (or climb/scramble if you carry on past the tunnel) along the winding zig zag path, and great views back over Calpe. You should definitely do the walk at least up to the tunnel while you're in Calpe. You do need to be able to walk quite a way and up and then down a slope. Sensible footwear... More

We are fortunate that we have a lovely view of the Rock from our retirement home in Calpe. Our children and grandchildren have climbed to the top of the Rock and their photos show the amazing view there. For the younger and active it is a must, and the really intrepid can climb the rockface by several routes. It looks... More

Excellent paved path up the Rock. Tremendous views, and lighthouse at top to walk round. Only gripe, no tea/coffee/snack bar at top or on way. The town are missing a major source of revenue here. Make sure you bring water !!!

Climbing the path up Ifach is a must if you can. The views are amazing, you can take your time, plenty of passing places for different speeds. My husband is in his 70s and I am mid 60s so if we can do it so can you! Don't forget your camera!

Reached the summit by climbing a classic route on the mount, easy descent by foot. Views from the summit are absolutely amazing, and totally worth the visit.

Whenever you are staying somewhere between Alicante and Valencia, be sure to visit this beautiful rock which is pretty easy to climb, even fo my wife who's in her mid 50s. From both tops, the view is magnificent.

We climbed to the top back in the summer of 2013 and it was challenging but fun. Great views from the top too. Some cute cats at the top so take a little cat food or some fish up to feed them if you remember.

It may look rather daunting but it's really not that bad. Worth the hour or so to get yourself to other side of the tunnel. Be warned (and we have seen it) during the walk you will have to stand on well worn rocks in the tunnel, flip flops and smooth soled shoes are not going to be any help.
