The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
Amongst many interesting places, Calpe and its neighbouring town of Teulada, invites every visitor to enjoy the fishing harbour and the yacht harbour, famous for their steady wind conditions. Calpe weather is one of the mildest around the Costa Blanca due to the close mountains which protect the village from the sometimes stronger north winds.
At the heart of the Costa Blanca, within the region of Valencia lies an ancient fishing village, now a tourist magnet by the name of Calpe. Calpe sits in an ideal location, easily accessed by the A7 motorway and the N332 that runs from Valencia to Alicante. Calpe is dominated by the towering rock of Ifach which reaches to an impressive 332m and is now a nature reserve. The summit of the rock is reached by means of a tunnel through the rock. From here, magnificent panoramic views can be had. On a clear day, the island of Ibiza is visible.
Calpe has a wonderful mixture of old Valencian culture and modern tourist trappings, perfectly harmonising providing an ideal base from which to explore the local area or enjoy on the many beaches. Calpe alone has three of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the coast.
Calpe is a town rich in history and culture and its strategic position on the coast has attracted many voyagers and settlers throughout history. Remains of Iberian tribes have been found around the town and later, the Romans founded a prosperous colony whose main activity was dried, salted fish. Christians and Moors lived peacefully for a time but were subjected to attacks by pirates during the 14th-17th centuries. The peace of the 18th century enabled Calpe to regenerate and form the current tourist location.
The Paseo Maritimo is long and clean, lined with bars and restaurants of all descriptions. The sea is clear and clean with golden sandy beaches. The blue flag beaches are safe for the young ones, making it a true, family resort. The town, although having very few monuments, was a pleasure to walk round, with plenty of squares to rest in along the way.
The town is easy to get to via the main highways although the centre is very difficult to navigate so best park on the outskirts.
The two churches of Calpe are certainly worth a visit. Close to each other, the Iglesia Antigua and the church Senora de las Nieves are both located in the centre of Calpe.
Calpe's two main beaches, the cantal roig and the playa arenal are widely known for its fine sand. Together with the other two beaches, la fossa and the bay of Gasparet which also belongs to the city, Calpe offers many kilometres of excellent swimming and surfing possibilities. If you are looking for a Calpe golf club around, you can find an extensive listing of courses where you can play golf around the Costa Blanca here.
Calpe has a good English community with many English people making this their retirement location.
