Bring good and comfortable walking shoes. Don't be disappointed if there is no attraction for kids. This is a climbers rock place with a nature park around. Good for people who love walking.

This walk was amazing. So exhausting, but so worth it. Remember good shoes and a lot to drink. Even when it's not sunny. Be safe

Brilliant to see the work done on the Ifach has not hindered the 'daring' element. My daughter, age 11, loves the challenge. I'll be leaving it a couple of years before I take my youngest who's 8 and less competent physically as bits of it have a serious drop and a slip would end up in serious injury. Allow a... More

This is well worth the effort, but pass the tunnel it does becomes far more challenging and not for everyone. My wife left my son and me at the tunnel after looking at the lack of defined pathway after that point, but even up just up to the tunnel was worth the walk for the view. We went early morning...

There is a paved trail that would take you half way. You'll pass an ancient Roman site along with halfway house that has bathrooms and an information center. Once you get to the halfway point it is a great view. After that, there is a restricted fenced in area to go further up. Like many people, we decided to easily... More

Give it a go, although the path after the tunnel may leave a little to be desired! Definitely worth the views and stone culture on way up.

This is a very nice walk from the Calpe Port/marina. The surface is very flat and well maintained. It has lovely tree all along which give nice shade on a hot day. The sea view alongside is magnificent. It ends right at the base of the Penon which allows you to view the height of it and the fantastic rock... More

Once you've parked up just head for the parque by following the signs to Penyal D'Ifach. Free picnic area, toilets and seating for many as well as a cafe - if the big walk to the top of the rock is open feel free to have a bash so long as you have decent footwear and follow the well defined...

Being in the wind shade of the big rock the climb is hot. Vista is beautiful. But unfortunately there has been an accident and the tunnel and passage to the sea side are blocked. Count 1 hr more to complete this forbidden part
