This glorious resort on the shores of the sunny Costa Blanca is best known for its huge Penon de lfach rock, which dominates the coast here. With beautiful fine sandy beaches, ample leisure facilities, ancient history, and fantastic hotels, it's no wonder so many families and couples book holidays here year after year.
The atmosphere here is a little quieter and more laid-back than bustling Benidorm, so if you're looking for somewhere where you can really unwind and take things slowly, this is the place to be. Whether you're here for just a few days or a fortnight, you'll find Calp has something for everyone, from foodies to water sports enthusiasts.
Things to do
Spend some time at Cova dels Arcs, a breath-taking cove with dramatic arches and steep cliffs, 22km from Calpe. Or head to Mundomar, about 21km further south, a family-themed animal park with conservation at its heart. See the penguins, sea lions and other species, and visit the adjacent Aqualandia water park, where you can zoom down water slides, splash in the swimming pool, ride on the river rapids, or just soak up the sun on the terraces.
