What to see You're in one of the top destinations on the Costa Blanca, so the first thing you'll want to do is to experience its excellent beaches such as the Arenal-Bol or Levante-Fossa. Les Bassetes is one of the most attractive coves in the bay. If you raise your eyes you'll see the real symbol of this town: the rock known as the Peñón de Ifach, which is part of a nature reserve. We recommend climbing the almost 300 metres to the top of this great monolith, as there's a specially adapted route in addition to a Visitor Centre. On your way up you'll be rewarded by some incredible views. Other options include a stroll along the seafront promenade, and a visit to the archaeological remains of the Roman villa and the Baños de la Reina. Active tourism Calpe has five yacht clubs with 1,250 moorings. Activities available in the area around the marinas include scuba diving, rowing, sailing, windsurfing, waterskiing, underwater photography… And if you enjoy other sports, why not try your hand at climbing on the Peñón de Ifach, and caving in the Barranc del Mascarat ravine. Gastronomy In addition to the famous paella, other dishes worth ordering in the local restaurants are rice with kidney beans and turnips accompanied by baked chard, and octopus casserole.
