Take your time. Enjoy the views and smell the coffee. Good boots a must. If your partner insists on walking 10 foot ahead threaten divorce. It is a bit scary but the rope offers some comfort. You must have a head for heights and confidence. I got a bit nervous but serious it is great with fab views and well... More

Fantastic! Lovely picnic area before you do a good walk as far as the tunnel! From that point on it's adults only as there are some very narrow paths on the way up - people flout this rule but they really shouldn't as it can be quite dangerous for little ones! Spectacular views

I am not a big climber but enjoy a walk. This a combination of the two challenging but not too tough for anyone who is reasonably fit and determined. It is a game of two halves the walk up to,the tunnel then a climb come scramble to the top. Throughout the views are fabulous. Most people head for the top... More

Lovely walk around the base. The rock is amazing. The wild cats are well fed by visitors. Didn't venture up the rock though. Great photo opportunity

It's great that the Spanish authorities have made this a national park and prevented the spread of building. This is a well kept park and has been made as accessible as possible. It is a solid scramble but we'll worth it. Just a hint, when you have two options, 1 up to the very top on the right and a... More

This is a lovely walk to suit all ages and abilities, depending on how far you wish to go! The initial stages (to the tunnel) are easy going zig-zag paths with some lovely views of the natural park and across Calpe. Once you get through the tunnel the walk becomes a bit more strenuous and decent walking/hiking shoes/boots are strongly... More

Calpe rock is fantastic climb/walk but a little daunting once you get beyond the tunnel through the rock for younger kids. Sticky mud makes it a little awkward under foot as it soon fills the grips on your shoes. Allow a 2/3 hour trip up and back. The tourist office at the foot of the climb has decent toilets so...

The rock is a great place to stroll and enjoy the surrounding views or for those who want to get fit; a good workout as you stride up towards the tunnel.

This was our first visit, but don't think it will be our last! Fantastic views of the area and not too arduous a walk until you get through the tunnel... then it gets rather difficult.... we turned back as we hadn't got adequate foot wear. Despite this it was well worth the adventure and would highly recommend it if you're... More

Well maintained path on the lower section up to the tunnel, a little slippy going through tunnel but a chunky rope to hold on to! Then a great walk to the far side, exposed in places and exciting. Wonderful views.....amongst the gulls!
