  • If you go to Calpe goes then the visit to this park/this mountain. Nice view from the mountain and also a challenging hike. The higher you get the more difficult it is, of course. Rather a valid mountain climbing than just take a walk. It was pretty spicy, but that made the top of the mountain that it felt like a performance. Advice: Don shoes with good profile and sturdy sole. And success!

  • Very nice to climb but good endurance and good shoes with plenty of grip. Have several people to see run. Take plenty of drinking with it t's quite a climb. Route to the top is not always clear but findable. But if you t t red is definitely worth

  • 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.
