RESORT GUIDE

Welcome to our guide to Calpe, with useful hints and ideas to make the most of your stay.

Where is Calpe? Click here to view a map of Calpe powered by Google Earth.

(opens a new window)

The immense Rock of Ifach, calm and very clean beaches or little bays and cliffs and the valleys and mountains in the inland – Calpe will surprise you with its contrasts and the mild climate all year-round.

The new part of Calpe with its modern buildings and wide avenues harmonise with the ancient little fishing-village. Where tradition still has its place, tourists and visitors are always welcomed with warm hospitality.

The strategic location of Calpe on the coast has attracted a lot of settlers and voyagers throughout the centuries. That is the reason why it is a town that is full of culture and history. Around the skirts of the “Peñon" were discovered remains of Iberian tribes. Later, the Romans founded a colony on the coastal plain, its main activity was dealing in dried, salted fish. During the Medieval period, the population was spread out in independent settlements.

Even Christians and Moors lived peacefully together for some time, but later on the population suffered continual attacks by the pirates from the 14th to the 17th centuries. Finally abated the threat of pirates, Calpe started a period of redevelopment during the 18th century and laying the foundations in the 19th century for its current prosperity as a major attraction for international and national tourism.

The local festivities start in February with the Carnival, where marching bands from the whole of Europe meet in Calpe. The “Fallas" are in March, burning ceremoniously big statues on “San Jose", the 19th.

The next is a summer’s festival on the beach on the 24th June, followed by the fishermen’s patron “Virgen del Carmen" in the port the 16th July.

The 5th August is the patron saint’s day of the town “Virgen de las Nieves" with processions, fireworks etc. After the German Beer Festival in October, on the 22nd of the same month is the Fiesta in honour of the “Santisimo Cristo del Sudor" and about the same time the fiestas of the Moors and Christians (www.morosicristians.com) as well with different processions fireworks, outdoor parties etc.

In the old town, next to the Moorish quarter (“Arrabal") you can see a group of monuments like the “Torreo de la Peca", the ancient Town Walls and the church called “la Iglesia Vieja" the only example of Mudejar – Gothic architecture in the Land of Valencia. Along the seaside you have a modern promenade (“Paseo Maritimo") where recently have been found remains of a Roman villa, once forming part of the fish factory “Banys de la Reina".

On a hill overlooking the bay you can see the hermitage of San Salvador from the 18th century. On the outskirts of the town you will find the hermitage “La Cometa and the fortified “Casa Nova", built in the same century. Near by the “Mascarat" ravine are the ruins of the Moorish castle of Calpe. All over the municipal district you can find typical “Riu-Rau" country houses beside modern villas in perfect harmony.
Scenery

The municipal district extends along the curved bay, where you can find the impressive “Peñon de Ifach", the Symbol of the Costa Blanca. The Rock is declared as a Nature Park and provides shelter for a variety of plants, like for example the rockrose, the germander or the Ifach campion.

You’ve a big choice of Restaurants in and around Calpe offering everything of international cuisine and typical regional food. Some of the characteristic dishes in Calpe are its “salzones" (salty dried fish), “cruet de peix" (fisherman’s pot), “arros al forn" (oven-baked rice), “putxero de polp" (octupus in sauce) and certainly “Paella". For dessert try homemade Flan or other sweetmeats.

Calpe is ideal for all kind of sea-sports. The fishing port has a Nautical Club, where you can get all information on windsurfing, sailing, water-skiing, and scuba diving. Also available are sailing courses. If you like adventures, you can find them in form of rock-climbing on the “Ifach" and “Toix" or crossing the caves in Olta.

The local diving club and sailing school ensure safe conditions for both activities. La Fossa de Levante and El Arenal beaches offer a bustling contrast with a complete range of services, well cared for promenade and summer rental facilities for windsurf, pedal boats and jet- ski equipment. The activities also include the yacht club's sailing school, the diving centre at Puerto Blanco and a golf club, all overlooked by the enormous rock 332 metres high – the Peñón de Ifach nature reserve: a challenge for all rock climbing enthusiasts.

With small, rocky coves and wide, fine sandy beaches, Calpe has a wide variety of attractive coastline where transparent waters are the order of the day. Its beautiful, peaceful coves include Les Basetes, to the north – a natural shelter that provides perfect conditions for learning to sail and an interesting seabed carpeted with underwater plants perfect for diving.

There are plenty of golf courses within 45 mins drive of Calpe. Click here to find out more.

Playa la Fossa

Between the Punta de Basettes and the Penon de Ifach a wide bay is formed where this beach is located close to both apartments. With fine golden sand it has all kinds of services and on Wednesday evenings during the summer it becomes an improvised open-air cinema.

Del Penyal

Stroll round the ancient town centre and see the typical fisherman's houses in the town's picturesque streets, then visit the Museum of Archaeology and the Fiestas Museum, the Square of “Plaza de la Villa", and finally go to the Hermitage of San Salvador on the hilltop.

Take a one hour glass bottom boat trip from the port around the bay of the Playa de Levante, stopping off to view the marine life near the ocean bed.

Take a ferry trip to Benidorm, Altea or Javea

In the afternoon, wander down to the fishing port and watch the boats arrive with their daily catch. See the auctions at the Fish Market (Lonja).

If you like sailing, set off from the modern Nautical Club to see the coast, stopping at the Cova dels Coloms, a marine cave serving as the mouth of an underground, fresh-water stream

Enjoy local nature by travelling along the quiet rural roads running to the “Casa Nova", the “Pou Salat", the Hermitage of “La Cometa" and the “Parque de la Vallesa", or ascend the Rock of Ifach to get a splendid panoramic view of the entire area.

On Saturday morning visit the bustling market in Calpe town – best to take the bus or walk as parking in town on market day in almost impossible.

Trains from Calpe station go to AlteaBenidorm or Alicante to the south and Denia to the north – the bus from outside the apartment takes you to the station.
