“Outstanding views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

This is an absolute must when visiting Calpe or Altea. Wear sturdy shoes!!!
The views of Calpe north and Altea south are simply breathtaking. And talking of breathtaking be prepared for the climb.

“Amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

First a response to an earlier review! It is not a wearing drive to the top! coming off the N-332 road into the Maryvilla area, it only takes 5mins max to reach a suitable parking area. And another 5-10 mins walk up to the top, so not very wearing. Also do not go up there with a torch in the evening hoping to see the sunset behind the Ifach. You are looking east from Monte Toix to Calpe, so you would only see a sunrise, (after an overnight wait!). Having said all that, worth the drive out, totally amazing views, to Calpe, Moraira and Altea to Benidorm. Highly recommended. Also on the way down, take a detour to Puerto Blanco, a nice little port area with bars and restaurants.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

Its a wearing drive up to near the top (where you must then park [very limited parking] and walk / hike the rest) but my god it is very much worth it!

The views are quite simply stunning, go up just before sunset (with a torch) and watch the sun go down behind Parque Natural del Peñón de Ifach. You will be blown away no matter what time you go up here though, as it gives unbeatable, in Spain, panoramic countryside views.

The best things in life really are for free :)
