Holidays in

A classic slice of Spanish coast

With its pristine beaches, busy markets and relaxed pace of life, Calpe has everything you need to get you into a proper holiday mood. There’s no danger of getting bored – backstreet ambles around the old town lead to traditional hillside villas, cosy bistros, bijou shops and the atmospheric remains of archaeological sites left by Roman, Iberian and Arab settlers.

Calpe holidays include modern resorts with sweeping sea views that have sprung up along the coastline, but you can also wander along the harbour as the boats pull in for a charming glimpse into what this ancient fishing village was once like. But the real draw for holidaymakers is the wide sandy beaches, which spread out either side of the imposing Penon de Ifach rock. As well as aqua sports and kids’ play areas, there are plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs populating these gorgeous shores. Whether you’re travelling in a family, as a couple or in a group, holidays to Calpe deliver sun, sea, sand and more.

Your Calpe questions, answered

Pretty much anyone – families, groups and couples (as well as a large expat community) are all drawn to Calpe’s wonderful beaches, laid-back restaurants and favourable climate.

Calpe has its own cluster of lively bars on the seafront, but if you fancy seeing what Benidorm has to offer, just hop on the ALSA bus, tram or boat.

Climbing the limestone rock of Penon de Ifach – Spain’s smallest national park – is a great experience. Avoid April to June when the north side is closed to protect nesting birds.

Best things to do in Calpe

Visit the market

Find your way to the fish market and get your dinner sorted, or just watch the pros in action at the fish auction on the quay.

Take the easy way up

The easiest way to get a close-up view of this iconic rock is to take the tunnel straight to the summit. Drink in those sea views – and plenty of water – up top.

Flip for flamingos

Looking for a budget-friendly way to unwind? Forget pink flamingo cocktails. At Calpe’s salt flats, Las Salinas, you can see these migratory birds in their natural habitat.
