In Calpe you can enjoy an average annual temperature of 18 ºC, which ranges from an average of 10 ºC in winter to 26 ºC in summer. Its 13 km coastline has no shortage of fine golden sandy beaches and coves —14 in fact— and also over 5 km of beautiful cliffs. Adventurers will be in their element as the area offers a myriad of exciting water sports and activities.
Amongst Calpe’s must-see sights the Natural Park of Peñón de Ifach stands out, a 50,000 m2 limestone rock that rises 332 m above the sea. It’s home to around 80 species of nesting, migratory and vagrant birds.
Baños de la Reina (meaning the Queen’s baths) is another place you cannot miss; an archaeological site located next to the Calpe salt mines. These are the remains of a Roman palace made up of eight rooms, a courtyard and a corridor. The site also features pools carved out of the coastal rock, which were used for fish farming to supply fresh produce for local consumption.
