The tourist town of Calpe is located north of the province of Alicante in the region of Marina Alta, between the towns of Benissa and Altea, occupying an area of 22.9 km2 with an average altitude of 20 m above the sea.
In Calpe, there are three clearly differentiated nuclei that are the urban center, the beaches and the urbanizations in which the type of urban construction, the distribution of the space and the inhabitants vary completely.
The Peñón de Ifach is the most characteristic and emblematic geographical element of Calpe that differentiates it from the rest of the Mediterranean tourist destinations.
It is a rock formation of 332 m in height and that enters 1 km. in the sea and divides the coast in two large bays, which are the two most important beaches of Calpe; that of "la Fossa" to the north and that of "Arenal - Bol" to the south.
The magnitude of its dimensions and its exceptional beauty make it deserve the nickname of "Symbol of the Costa Blanca", being also declared a Natural Park in 1987 for its great scientific value.
In addition to the Peñón de Ifach and the salt mines, the beaches and coves that stretch along the 13 km of coastline are the main components of the tourism product that corresponds to the "sun and beach" model.
The configuration of the accommodation offer began in the sixties, as a consequence of the boom in the urban construction of second residences due to a strong demand of foreign origin motivated by the weather and by socio - economic factors.
This circumstance was taken advantage of by builders and real estate developers and has made that at present the accommodation offer is of two types:
-Tourism Residential: Formed by the owners of the houses, mostly from Central - Europe. They remain in Calpe throughout the year, except in summer they return to their countries and rent their property.
-Tourism Holiday: Composed of young and middle-aged families from Spain and Central Europe, who visit Calpe mainly in summer.
Another facet of the great entertainment offer in this area is "Terra Mítica", one of the largest theme parks in Europe, which is only half an hour by car from Calpe, and there are also 5 golf courses nearby. Calpe has a nautical club perfectly equipped for the realization of all kinds of water sports.
