I had a stroll around the base on the tiled path as far as you can go. Decided it was such a lovely walk that I decided to follow the path up to the top. It's essential that you wear good sturdy footwear as it can be a tad hard going & when walking through the tunnel it can be... More

Walk past the port, and the path leads next to the Penon de ifrach. Easy to miss, but worth it to walk next to the massive Penon . Little cafe along there too.

Probably takes 2 hours in total up and down depending on how busy it is. My Dad is 65 and made it up and down handy enough. You probably need a little... More

You don't have to climb to enjoy the area. The D'Ifach (The Penyal d'Ifac) is a massive limestone outcrop emerging from the sea dominates the area and is stunning from every angle in Calpe. Set within an area of 45 hectares, it is the smallest natural park in Spain and is stunning!

This walk is difficult if you want to get to the summit. Towards the end you even have to use all four limbs to climb! Make sure you wear suitable footwear and take plenty of water. We started climbing at 7am to avoid the sun. Amazing views when you get to the top!

We went before sunset, but it was still hot and a little exhausting. Amazing view though, and there are hungry cats up there, so BRING THEM SOME CATFOOD! And water.
