Not for the faint hearted

This is a great walk if you take it steady, hard going in some places, but the summit is breathtaking! Well worth the effort and the views all the way to the top are great.

Wearing only sandals and a swim suit, I "climbed" this Mountain (exactly 1,000 feet high) and returned in less than four hours. It was everything the others reviewer said: "Lovely and breath taking". I wore a camel back and found that I had consumed only one liter of water during the walk, which I began in the morning. Plan on... More

Free to get in, and a lovely walk right up the rock. Go in the morning though especially if it's warm weather. Oh and make sure u wear shoes or trainers.

The view from the top is breathtaking, and that's lucky as you do have to put in some graft to get to the top! walking through the tunnel at roughly the halfway has always been one of my favourite parts of the trip. The smaller walk along the base of the Penyal i equally as pretty, and much easier on... More

I did this walk when I was a child so on my latest trip to Calpe I had to go back! It's a lovely gradual walk up the rock even when it is 30 degrees. We could only walk as far as the tunnel as it's currently closed off for maintenance, however the view from there is amazing. You can... More

Calpe rock or the Ifach is amazing as it towers over the area You can walk around it on a flat well kept pathway. You can walk up to the top although at the moment the access tunnel is closed so you can go halfway the views are spectacular The whole area is clean and beautiful

A brisk walk to the top of this rock is well worth it the views are outstanding and you can see for miles, bit rocky once you go through the tunnel can be a bit tricky under foot but well worth the risk good trainers / running ones are best

The path to the summit of Calpe Rock is again closed following many accidents. The tunnel to take you through for the final push has been blocked. When I was there in May 2017 a man had fallen 15 feet and suffered serious head injuries: he was not on the permitted path. The walk up to the tunnel is still... More
