Calpe is a very well known town on the Costa Blanca which has the amazing landmark that is the ‘Penon de Ifach’. This is a gigantic granite rock towering over 600 metres high. On each side of the rock are two fantastic sandy Calpe beaches – they are of a very high quality sand and the waters are clean.
Calpe is definitely a big bustling town far removed from it’s origins as a tiny fishing village.
On Saturdays there is the local market selling fresh fruits and vegetables as well as other locally-made goods and produce.
The Calpe beaches are superb and always hold a blue flag which means they are certified as being clean by the European Foundation for Environmental Education. They are surrounded by dozens of restaurants, bars and clubs offering a wide variety of food, drink and entertainment.
