  • Climb the zigzagging and slippery slope that once past the tunnel becomes dangerous without proper footwear (and kids). But travel, top and setting reward enormously.

  • The hike to the top is pretty tiring, a lot of tourists. Are much better options. If you go to the toerisinfo is going to give it your maps with different walks. In the neighborhood are quite a few impressive walks to do. (always bring drinks and snacks)

  • Very nice place to visit. Huge contrast with Calp. It's often windy. There are many seagulls. The climb to the top is fairly easy, but bring good shoes as some parts require some easy climbing. When rainy, the rocks must be incredibly slippery. Some parts of the trail are quite exposed. When we summited the Penyal, there was a cat all the way on the top.
  • Absolutely stunning location. But be warned, the walk to the top is short but really quite hard and somewhat dangerous
  • The smallest natural park in Europe. The Ifach Rock is free to climb and the views are well worth the effort. It took us 90 mins to get to the summit.
  • Tierra, Mar y Aire... E S P E C T A C U L A R ---------> CALP.
  • nice walk and nice view. there are tables for pic-nic but no restaurants.
