As early as the 1930s, writers such as Hemingway in Calp were summering. And next to the Rock the first Calp hotel establishment was installed: the Parador de Ifach. The Morro del Toix and the Peñon de Ifach are the ends of the Calpina bay. The Rock of Ifach, north in Phoenician language, is one of the symbols of Calp and by extension, of the Costa Blanca. It is the highest cliff in the whole Mediterranean and divides the Calpe coastline in two. Its calcareous mass of 332 meters of altitude enters 1 km into the sea forming a geological accident of the first magnitude. Natural Park since 1987 keeps in its interior unique ecological riches as the carnation of Ifach. You can ascend to the summit by means of controlled visits in which the faunal and botanical wealth of Calp is explained in detail in the Aula de la Naturaleza. From the summit we have one of the best views of the entire Costa Blanca. Calp has 11 kms of coastline from Les Bassetes, passing the Rock, to Morro de Toix, and beaches such as Levante or Arenal, with coves such as La Manzanera, where there are three buildings designed by Ricardo Bofill, or Les Urques where you can practice scuba diving or fishing. The Cueva dels Coloms, in the Morro de Toix that looks at Altea, is freshwater and can only be accessed by the sea.
