Playa Arenal – Bol, One of the Two magnificent beaches.
 Calpe is best known for its sandy beaches and great fish restaurants. There are two stunning beaches to choose from, one either side of the huge rock known as the Peñon de Ifach which rises 332 meters out of the Mediterranean sea. Both beaches have beautiful long promenades and a great selection of bars and cafes. The fish restaurants are to be found mainly around the marina and the town centre has some excellent local shopping facilities, including a large street market on a Saturday.
 The Peñon which has been compared to the Rock of Gibraltar, was declared a nature reserve in 1987 and now provides a safe haven for a variety of birds and unusual flora and fauna. For the energetic, there is a fantastic walking route which goes through a tunnel in the rock and takes you right to its very top.
