Calpe Holidays

Show on Map

Once a fishing village, Calpe is loved by holidaymakers who like a dose of history with their beach-based relaxation.

Your choice of beaches

If you’re up for the challenge, you can try all 14 of Calpe’s beaches during your holiday. Or simply pick your favourite, stretch out, and soak up those shimmering Mediterranean scenes.

A town steeped in culture

You can’t hide from the rich history and stunning scenery in and around Calpe. There are many authentic features, from waterfalls to ancient buildings, and you won’t have to stray far to be wowed.

Insider Tip

For breathtaking views from the comfort of your car, take a scenic coastal drive to Moraira along the CV-746.

Best beaches

Some of the best sandy beaches in the whole area are right here in Calpe. La Fossa Levante is a lovely horseshoe of golden sand with Blue Flag status and a choice of cafés. At the south end, you’ll find another beach – Arenal-Bol – which is popular with families. For more sedate sunbathing, try La Calalga.

Top sights

You won’t know where to look there’s so much on your doorstep in Calpe – the town itself is overlooked by the huge natural Rock of Ifach. Other local highlights include the ruins of an ancient Roman fish-salting factory and a 15th century watchtower and the only remaining Mudéjar-Gothic church in the València area. Just 18km away you’ll find the incredible Algar waterfalls.

Out and about

If you can tear yourself away from your sunbed, activities on offer in and around Calpe include hiking, golf, climbing, tennis, bowling, scuba diving, yoga, cycling and horse riding. Watersport lovers can pop into the nautical club down at the marina where they offer yachting, windsurfing and water skiing. Las Salinas is a salt lake which is home to flamingos and other birds.

Eating and drinking

Fresh fish is a must while you’re staying in a former fishing village, and don’t miss the paella – a speciality in the restaurants along the Calle Pintor Sorolla. You’ll find many Calpe restaurants offering a delicious mix of Spanish and Moorish cuisine, as well as more familiar foods – think Indian and British.


You’ll certainly be able to pick up some decent souvenirs from the quaint shops of Calpe and from the popular street market on Saturday morning. Explore the side streets to escape from the midday sun, but remember this is Spain and many shops still close for an afternoon siesta.


Calpe is known for a relaxed vibe that comes with a great selection of restaurants and bars. The best nightlife can be found along Calle La Niña. Or, for a more upbeat night out, hop 20 minutes down the coast to banging Benidorm.
