The Costa Blanca / Valencia / Alicante Province region
You can of course spend your entire holiday without moving from Calpe but should you wish to explore further afield there is much to see and do in the surrounding area.
Both the major cities of Alicante and Valencia are worth a visit. Valencia, the home of the America Cup Yacht Race and the recent Formula 1 Grand Prix is undergoing much regeneration around the old commercial port area. Here you will find the base of the Americas Cup and the new marina complex. Close by is the new Science Museum, Oceanagraphic Sea World and Palau D´Arts Opera House, stunning architecture in their own right. The old town is not to be missed, spend a relaxing day and just soak up the atmosphere.
Alicante should not be missed either, a bustling vibrant city with the modern marina, old town and shopping area all within an easy walk. If you are feeling energetic take a walk to the top of the Santa Barbara Castle and enjoy the magnificent views overlooking the whole of the city.
About a 45 minute journey inland is the old fortified village of Guadalest perched high up on a rocky outcrop, the old village is accessed through a large doorway carved out of the rock.
Benidorm is about ½ hrs drive and offers many attractions for the whole family. There is Aqualandia, a large water park; Mundomar a sea life centre; Terra Mitica theme park and Terra Natura wildlife park combined with a small water park. Benidorm Palace offers glittering international cabarets with dinner.
Just outside Callosa d´En Sarria are the Fonts d´Algar, a series of refreshing springs and waterfalls set within a Nature Park. Impressive underground caves can be found at Benidoleig and Canalobre with stalactites and stalagmites formed over thousands of years.
A short scenic drive will take you to the Jalon and Orba Valleys, vast valley floors full of citrus trees or grape vines, sample some of the local wine in one of the bodegas in Jalon or take a stroll around one of the surrounding villages.
For a different day why not try the small single line railway, this will transport you along the coast south to Altea, Benidorm and beyond, and terminates at Denia to the north. The neighbouring coastal towns of Moraira, Javea, Altea and Denia are all worthy of a visit with their old traditional towns and their more modern tourist beach areas.
The Calpe / La Cometa area
Calpe has much to offer the visitor whether you want just a totally relaxing holiday or something a little more energetic. The area is dominated by the Penon d´Ifach rock rising 332 metres from the sea, blue flag beaches stretch out from both sides of this impressive landmark.
Take a stroll along the wide promenade stopping off along the way at the many beach side cafes to soak up the sun and admire the view. Relax on the long fine white sandy beaches and listen to the gentle lapping of the breaking waves.
For the more energetic of you a walk to the top of the Penon is a must, the views from here are just breathtaking. All sorts of water sports are available from windsurfing, kite surfing, sailing and canoeing. Bicycles can be hired and there is a Tennis Club nearby, the choices are endless.
Lunch can be enjoyed in one of the many fish restaurants in the port area at the base of the Penon. Here you will be tempted by the variety of local fish on display.
Boat trips are available from Calpe port taking you either north or south. For the evening what better place to spend it than in the old town with its narrow streets and local architecture, soaking up the atmosphere over a glass or two and a fine meal.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
Many low cost airline carriers fly into Alicante (55 mins drive), Valencia (1hr 5 mins drive) or even San Javier Murcia airport (1hr 30 mins drive).
There is a coach service from Alicante airport, you have to change at Benidorm station and then catch a further coach from Benidorm to Calpe bus station, details of the routes and timetables can be found on the website www.alsa.es (available in English). Taxis are available but the cost of your arrival and return journey will generally exceed the cost of a week´s car hire. Also although we are only 3km from town and less than 2km from the beach there is minimal local public transport available, besides taxis, so a car is advisable; and we are sure you will also want to explore the surrounding area aswell. Suggested car hire companies:
Please be advised that the motorways from both Alicante and Valencia are toll roads, you can pay by credit card otherwise you will need to have Euros available.
Upon booking and receipt of a deposit we will email you detailed directions from either Alicante or Valencia together with a local map showing where we are.

wonderful apartment one of the best we have ever stayed in.
Super fitted kitchen with everything you could want and the use of a great swimming pool.

A modern clean well equipped apartment. Everything you need for a very relaxing holiday. Good outdoor space, great views and fabulous pool. We enjoyed our two weeks here and would like to return at some time in the future. Would certainly recommend it.

On arrival we were met by the owner Barry, who showed us around the Apartment and explained its facilities. A welcome pack was a nice gesture.
The Apartment was very clean and had all appliances in the kitchen that could have been excepted.
The bathroom was of very good proportions with a large walk-in shower and quality sanitary ware. In all previous and numerous Apartments that we have rented there has always been a hairdryer which my wife has found beneficial, but not in this one. My wife had enquired before we flew out to Spain so she brought one along with her.
There is a nice private terrace outside with two sunloungers. However, much to our surprise there were no mattresses on display. On enquiring from Barry as to whether there were any available it was met with a resolute no. Reason being that they would soon deteriorate in the high temperatures! Trying to relax on a plastic sunbed without any type of cover whatsoever is not a pleasurable experience.
In conclusion we did enjoy our hoilday in Calpe and in this Apartment but will be unlikely to return.
Thank you for your feedback and comments. We are constantly reviewing the facilities and equipment we offer and will consider the provision of a hairdryer in the future. Regarding the cushions for the sun loungers, we have previously provided these but found that they very quickly deteriorated and became unpleasant due to the use of suncreams and general perspiration, and as the covers were not removable it was not possible to clean them. Therefore in trying to maintain a high standard of cleanliness and presentation decided they were not hygienic. We personally use the same type of sunloungers as our guests without the need for a cushion.
We appreciate your positive comments on the presentation of the apartment, the kitchen equipment and bathroom facilities provided, and the provision of a 'Welcome Pack'.
