Located 67 km north of Alicante, the coastal town of CALPE, with its 13,000 inhabitants, is known for its beautiful beaches and its massive rock formation called the Penon de Ifach.
Located in the Costa Blanco region of Spain, Calpe can be reached by the A-7 highway or the N-332 national road, the one we took.
Calpe has two main beaches, the Cantal Roig and the Playa Arenal and two smaller beaches , La Fossa and the Bay of Gasparet.
Many Iberian, Roman and Arab archeological sites exist in the town, due to its coastal location.
Calpe is one of the many little towns Hans and I explored along the peninsula. Other towns include Javea, Altea, Moraira/Teulada, Benissa and Denia.
