Calpe is within an hours drive of both Alicante and Valencia airports and a short drive from the neighbouring towns of Altea, Moraira, Javea and Benidorm which offer fantastic golf courses, Terra Mitica theme park, Aqualandia water park, Mundomar animal attraction and the ferry from Denia takes you straight across to Ibiza.
Calpe is a popular tourist destination for all nationalities, especially the Spanish who holiday here from the cities of Madrid and Barcelona. It has around 13,000 habitants and is known for its rock called the Penon de lfach. This massive rock has been inspiring people from everywhere to come and enjoy the nearly perfect view around the bays and the Costa Blanca. It can be reached either by the A-7 highway or the N-332 national road, which I would recommend using. The national road really gives you the kind of holiday feeling as it leads you to Calpe along the coastline up from Alicante. There are many walking clubs and cycling is a very popular past time with the picturesque views along the N-332 coastal road.
There is plenty to see in Calpe. The two churches are certainly worth a visit. Close to each other, the Iglesia Antigua and the church Senora de las Nieves are both located in the centre of Calpe in the old town. Calpe's archaeological museum can be found just opposite at the Plaza de la Villa showing various findings from the 4th to the 8th century. Alongside you'll find Roman ruins and old Roman baths (Bano de la Reina) together with remains of an old tower, the Torreon de la Peca. For more local culture, you could visit the Museo Fester, which explains the local Moors and Christians "fiesta" and all its traditions.
Calpe's two main beaches (playas) are on either side of the Penon de Ifach rock, with the famous port and its fantastic restaurants in the middle. Apart from the beautiful sandy beaches are many pebble beaches and rocky coves along the coast line in both directions and many ports (puertos) housing spectacular boats and lovely coffee shops and restaurants. Calpe offers many kilometres of excellent swimming and surfing possibilities with diving schools, kite surfing, jet ski hire and much more.
