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.

Imagine a car park like a bomb site. Park up very carefully and then stroll up to the Visitor Centre. On your way (to the left -the right is a sheer drop!) you'll see thriving pepper bushes. In late summer the peppers are ripe. Sneak a few into your pockets and munch a few. Then grab your bottle of water... More

My wife actually chickened out of this walk but she missed a good time. Was a good long hard walk but I enjoyed it and great views. Met some nice people to chat to. Calpe is a nice place

I am scared of heights but this was wonderful. It was an easy walk. I even saw a couple with a children's buggy and two toddlers. I was able to stay away from the edges so felt safe and comfortable. At the top of the walk there is a tunnel through part of the rock. This is very challenging so... More

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
