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

The Penon offers many Multi-pitch rock Climbing adventures. Easy routes and harder ones. Some fully bolted, some need extra gear. Every time I've climbed it, I totally enjoyed it!

Well, needless to say, it is all uphill. The first part is a trail with stairs. This quickly turns into a steeper trail with rough steps here and there. By the time you get to the tunnel there are no steps, just stone. If you want to have a safe and relatively comfortable walk, don't wear loose sandals. Once you... More

This is a lovely walk and has great views all the way along the paths up. You can go to the entrance of the cave which take you then up the top of the rock or you can stop at the cave entrance. The walk ways past the cave entrance are quite slippery and the walk up to here is... More

Good views and a abundant birdlife. Access to the rock is good and the park is wery well managed. Up to a tunnel there is a path that even kids can go. After that the path is adrenaline inducing and challenging… all this is very well described in all the signs along the trail…

We didn't walk too far up the rock as its very steep and you really need proper walking shoes but even if you can make it up to the visitor centre you get an amazing view of calpe. Great clean facilities.

My husband and I have climbed the Penon perhaps 6 times over the years, most recently when we are both in our sixties. We are fit and well and this is essential because the terrain is steep and rocky. The climb up to the tunnel is an easy uphill walk on a path, the tunnel is slippery and beyond that... More
