Calpe : Holiday Accommodation
Famed for its Penon de Ifach, a giant rock rising from its headland, Calpe will delight anyone wanting to unwind in a low-key resort. You can pass the hours enjoyably on the two superb sandy beaches, swimming in the twinkling waters and experimenting with watersports like windsurfing and sailing. There's a scenic waterfront offering wide variety of restaurants and bars, many of which serve the day's catch. For a change, there are excellent local golf courses and in the centre, a museum, churches and plentiful shops for lazy pottering. After dark, sociable bars and music spots quicken the tempo and when you feel like exploring, take the famous Lemon Train to charming nearby Altea and Javea or trudge up the Penon to enjoy spectacular views over the bay and on a clear day, to far-off Ibiza.
