Calpe's two main beaches are divided by the spectacular Rock of Ifach, which has come to be the symbol of the Costa Blanca. The rock soars 322 metres into the sky and is a nature reserve.
On either side are the fishing port and beaches, where scuba diving and sailing are favourite pastimes. The sheltered location of Javea provides quiet waters and serene beaches, one of which is a 'clothes optional' beach, the Playa de Ambolo.
The fine, white sand of the beaches of Costa Blanca are from where its name came, but there is more to this quiet region than just beautiful beaches. The inland terrain with high craggy mountain peaks, rolling hills covered in cherry blossom and deep lagoons is a paradise for hikers, while the densely populated coastal town provides accommodation and nightlife.
