The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
Situated on the east coast of Spain, the "White coast" of the Costa Blanca is one of the main holiday destinations in Europe, with a huge amount on offer. The World Health Organisation has designated the northern Costa Blanca as possessing one of the finest climates found anywhere, and the EU has awarded many of the beaches in the area the prestigious "blue flag" for water quality and cleanliness several years running.
If you stay on the coast then you can be assured of white, sandy beaches with lots of water sports and plenty to keep the little ones occupied. Alternatively you can head inland a little to enjoy the quaint hideaways and the smell of the orange groves, whilst seeing more of Spanish regional culture.
Calpe is a large, but traditional, Spanish town that boasts many excellent shops, beaches, restaurants and bars. The Penon de Ifach is now a nature reserve with salt flats, unique vegetation, flamingos and a migrant bird population. The peak of the rock can be reached up a zigzagging track, which overlooks the working fish port and yacht harbour.
Calpe also boasts two blue flag beaches, which offer extensive water sports facilities in high season. As well as the modern town, Calpe has a typically Spanish old town, which offers an excellent range of traditional bars and restaurants. There are many surrounding towns within an hours drive, all well worth a visit - Moraira, Altea, Javea to name just three - as is the beautifully preserved medieval village of Guadalest up in the mountains. Whether you want a quiet holiday or a fun-packed one there is something for everyone in and around Calpe.
Entertainment and Places to Eat
Whether you want a quiet holiday or a fun-packed one, there is something for everyone in and around Calpe - the Disney Style Terra Mitica theme park at Benidorm (just 30 minutes away by car), Aqualandia Water Park, and the Mundomar Exotic Animal and Marine Park. There are Safari Parks at Aitana and Vergel, Waterfalls at Bolulla, Caves at Benidoleig and Canalobre. For superb international shows with dinner the renowned Benidorm Palace and the Casino Mediterráneo at Villajoyosa are not to be missed. Calpe has a wealth of restaurants to satisfy tastes of all nationalities. With its fishing port, sea-food is extremely popular. All along the coastal road towards Moraira there are plenty of places to stop, eat and enjoy the view, whatever your tastes
Calpe - Leisure Activities
Port les Basetes is about 2 kilometres along a nice coastal path from the North end of Calpe's Levante (East) beach; it is also only a 5 minute drive from the apartment. It is an outstanding centre for water sports - especially diving, fishing, sailing, water skiing and wind surfing. Tennis, in addition to being available on-site, is available at the Calpe Club de Tenis at 2 kms from the apartment. There are also many opportunities for both the lazy and the adventurous walker - either reaching the top of the Penon or walking round or up the Sierra de Olta could be interesting. Just inland is the Montgo National Park which has numerous walking opportunities from the easy to the severe - all with splendid scenery and views.
