  • The rock is a great place to stroll and enjoy the surrounding views or for those who want to get fit; a good workout as you stride up towards the tunnel. 
  • This was our first visit, but don't think it will be our last! Fantastic views of the area and not too arduous a walk until you get through the tunnel... then it gets rather difficult.... we turned ba...  more »
  • Well maintained path on the lower section up to the tunnel, a little slippy going through tunnel but a chunky rope to hold on to! Then a great walk to the far side, exposed in places and exciting. Won...  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.
