calpe

Is Calpe a suitable resort for a fit & healthy couple in mid 60s? We're thinking of going there in May/June. Is there any particular part of Calpe recommended for seeking accomodation (appartment or hotel)?How far is Calpe from nearest airport?

Any other relevant information about the resort would be welcome.

Calpe is perfect for a couple in their 60's...It's a beautiful place to stay at. We love it here. We are an hour from Alicante, hour and quarter from Valencia. Have a browse of this site

We are in our mid sixties and have owned an apartment in Calpe for nearly 30 years and we love it. It is quiet compared to most resorts these days. Lovely flat walk along the prom between two beaches with the port and fish restaurants half way. Not much in the way of night life but plenty of bars, restaurants etc. The old town is lovely, that's where we live but it is a 10 min walk up a really steep hill. You need to decide if you want to be on the typical tourist type beach of Levante (not much there except beach and a few shops, plenty of high rise) or nearer town in which case book somewhere near Arenal beach. Hire a car and explore the local area, beautiful countryside around Jalon and good cheap restaurants too, the coast road towards Javia also beautiful. Fly to Alicante and the drive is about an hour.

Plenty of apartments on both beaches but watch out as many villas and town houses are a long way from the town or the beach and you would have to drive. Fewer hotels but there is a a huge one called Sol Y Mar right in the town beach.

Calpe is great. The "Penon de lfach" is pretty amazing, and worth climbing if you can...
