Calpe holidays 2020
At the heart of the Costa Blanca is Calpe, an ancient fishing village set along a coast of golden sands and the Mediterranean Sea. Sitting in the shadows of its famous 332 metre tall Rock of Ifach, the unmissable peak sits between the resort’s two sandy beaches. At the top, outstanding panoramic views can be enjoyed.
This charming resort is a blend of natural landmarks, ancient cultural attractions and modern amenities that will make your holiday memorable. Whether you want to spend your days on the sun-kissed beaches, soaking up some Spanish culture in the old town, or exploring the highlights of the coast, a cheap holiday to Calpe has it all.
The sun shines on Calpe throughout the year, with average temperatures of 20°C, soaring to 40°C during the summertime. You can cool off from all the heat in the Bay of Calpe’s crystal clear waters.
Calpe is designed with holidaymakers in mind. Its marina has been awarded a Blue Flag and is surrounded by seafood restaurants and open-fronted shops. Along the coastline is a ribbon of high-rise hotels overlooking the beach and the seafront promenade is studded with modern bars and restaurants.
