  • Go very early in the morning and you will have a wonderful sunrise. Make sure you take water and do not go in middays as it is fully exposed to the sun and you boil up there. The Ifach is not for fain...  more »

  • 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.
