View from the Peñón de Ifach Natural Park towards the coastal town of Calpe and its marina.
The Peñón de Ifach is a wonderful vantage point on the Mediterranean coast. Hiking through the nature reserve offers a bird's eye view of the Mediterranean Sea and the landscape of the northern Costa Blanca. This is where opposites meet. Nature meets a touristic region.
On the one hand, the port of Calpe offers space for the traditional boats of the fishermen. On the other hand, it is a popular marina where numerous sailing boats and motor boats are moored. I love observing the white boats, the blue sea water and the urban architecture from the elevated position.
In general, the Peñón de Ifach Natural Park is considered the symbol of Calpe. In the past it was used by the locals as an observation post and to protect the coast against pirates. It was part of a surveillance system on the Valencian coast. Today it is a popular destination for hikers and climbers.
