Nearby attractions

Around a 45-minute drive inland from Calpe (approx 25km) is the village of Guadalest, a strategic military stronghold with fortifications dating back to 715AD. It's a popular tourist attraction and its cobbled streets are filled with shops, crafts and restaurants.

Just 10km from Calpe is the natural beauty spot of 'Las Fuentes del Algar' (the Algar waterfalls), this is a great place for a picnic and enjoy a refreshing dip in one its freshwater pools (to get the most out of your visit it's worth taking some water shoes to help with the pebbly water bed).

For an interesting day out take a daytrip into the old town of Altea, with its blue domed church of Nuestra Senora de Consuelo, wander down the narrow, cobbled streets lined with many arts and crafts shops.
