Calpe has changed a lot over the past 60 years from a simple farming and fishing village to a bustling tourist town with almost all of its municipal area occupied by buildings and facilities for leisure and recreation. Its 12.000 inhabitants welcome throughout the year a large influx of travelers from Europe seeking the rest and tranquility that this beautiful town has to offer.

Access to Calpe is easy using either the AP7 motorway, the N111 or by Tram, the narrow track railway which has a station in the town.

It is only 20 kilometers from Benidorm, 63 kilometers from Alicante and 72 kilometers from the Altet International Airport.

The Peñon de Ifach is one of the main attractions of Calpe but there are also some equally magnificent beaches and a marina.

There is a fishing port where every afternoon you can watch the arrival of the fishing vessels, see their catch unloaded and then watch the auction unfold live from the spectators’ gallery, an unforgettable sight.

The salt flats are another attraction in Calpe, thousands of seabirds including flamingos and herons use them during their migration from North Africa and the south of Europe to rest and feed.

The famous ‘Queen’s Baths’ were actually a fish farm and formed part of the fish salting factory in the area during the Roman occupation.

The Mascarat Castle, the tower of La Pega, Casa Nova and El Pou Salat form another part of Calpe’s history and can still be seen today.
