Activities around Calpe
Calpe is a water sports paradise and offers windsurfing, diving, snorkelling, jet skiing, kayaking, dinghy sailing, wake boarding and kite surfing.
There are ample opportunities for sailing, from dinghy lessons to private yacht hire. We recommend this sailing school.
Calpe is famous for its marine beauty, especially around the Peñón de Ifach where there are several dive sites: from the shallow shore dive at Pebble Beach, to the beautiful Arches at Los Arcos and all the sites in between.
There is a wide variety of diving excursions and boat trips to nearby islands and coves.
Calpe is a popular base for climbing thanks to the Peñón de Ifach and the spectacular mountain ranges. This region offers climbing opportunities from the easy to the severe.
The mountain biking around Calpe and within 1 hours drive in the Guadalest Valley and Sierra Aitana is varied and challenging. There are easy rides like the circuit of Guadalest Reservoir (Embalse de Guadalest) and many harder outings which tackle the mountain passes and summits.
Calpe has a great reputation for cycling thanks to the beautiful Costa Blanca coastline and the spectacular mountain ranges. The road surfaces are near perfect most of the time and on some of the busier roads there is a cycle lane which is about 2m wide so pretty safe.
The Montgo National Park offers walking opportunities from the easy to the severe - all with splendid scenery and views.
