Good hike with a view
Jan 2021
Great place for hiking and for enjoying the astonishing view of Calpe. I suggest wearing comfortable boots or tracking shoes and taking walking poles and water along. You can also take something for the cats who somehow got to the summit.

The Rock
Jul 2021
Very impressive rock, visible from the whole of Calpe, as well as from its beaches. I think there is a way to climb, but we did not try.

Calpe Rock Climb.
Dec 2020 • Solo
When I visited it wasn’t busy so I was able to enjoy the sights, sounds and scents of nature without being overwhelmed by other tourists.
As has been said in other reviews this walk should not be underestimated. Sturdy footwear is essential for comfort and safety.
Up until the tunnel it is relatively straightforward for anyone of basic ability. However, through and beyond the tunnel it is more challenging with conditions underfoot being uneven, slippery and the path becomes narrower, steeper and with sheer drops. Nearer to the top some scrambling is necessary.
Be prepared for the weather to change. In the shade it can be chilly particularly if there is a wind blowing so an extra layer or two would be good to have.

Verry dangerious for unexperianced!
Nov 2020 • Couples
*warning* this is a verry dangerious hike! First half is easy and van be done by anyone, after the tunnel you need to be experianced in mountain hiking! Dont go alone, wear hiking gear and dont wear slippers or simpel shoe/sneakers. do not go up after rain or during rainfall, neighter go up or down in the dark. This climb has small paths, slippery rocks to cross with deep cliffs belowe, only holding a chain.
Ain't no funpark the Penon Ifach, but a serieus mountain. Last sunday, the helicopter needed to resque 3times! people from the top.
So do enjoy the risky hike, if you understand the rules in the mountains and you have experiance and the Gear.
Otherwise walk up to the tunnel, enjoy the great vieuws and go back down.

Amazing views, rough path
Oct 2020
Hiking to the top of the Penyon allows for amazing views of the city. As others have pointed out: the second part of the hike, after the tunnel, becomes much rougher. There are some short parts that require scrambling, there are chains to assist you and the path is rocky and uneven. There are no security fences either. For people with experience hiking I think the hike is doable. Hiking boots are highly recommended, sneakers seems a bad idea. Flip-flops would be a terrible idea.

Take water as well!

Difficult but worth it

Climb to Penyal d’Ifach fot some amazing views.

You arrive to a parking with your car (if you drive a bit more there is a better parking upwards).

A bit beyond the parking you have toilets and fountains (very welcome on the way down).

From there you start walking up a path like in a park. When you arrive to a cave, that’s wherethe path will change into something wilder, at some point just dangerous. But we saw people of all ages climbing. No minors allowed beyond the cave.

You will arrive to a point where you choose to go to the Penyal or to a mirador. If you don’t want to climb the mirador has a much shorter and easier path and very nice views.

We went up to the top and then to the mirador. All in all it took us around 1h40 to complete all.

Try to go as early as possible as the sun makes the climb harder. Bring water and for sure sport shoes!!

I have only walked to the tunnel which is a good path.
My family have been to the top.
The views are great from both points. A must for Calpe.

Brilliant views
Mar 2020 • Solo
Loved this walk - easy to follow; beautiful flowers and amazing views. The first but is really easy then after the tunnel it gets a bit more uneven but still easy for an average hiker. I hiked it on my own no problem. There are toilets and water fountains at the start.
