The Peñon de Ifach, in Calpe, is 35 nautical miles from the port of Alicante. About 7 hours of navigation at an average speed of 5 knots. It is an area that is highly prized by divers, not only because of its rich flora and fauna, but also because it is a point of great ease for diving, with gentle currents and places of soft access.
It is worth taking a walk through the Natural Park. There are different remains of ancient buildings and beautiful viewpoints. On clear days you can see Ibiza and Formentera. If you want to spend the night in the area, the Calpe Yacht Club is a magnificent place, protected by the Peñón itself, and the Altea Nautical Club is just an hour away sailing. In both towns you will find good places to eat and areas for a pleasant walk.
The old fishermen keep in the tradition three good anchorages: in the east, La Fosa, which offers refuge from the west and south winds; and in the west the anchorages of Bon and Cala El Racó. The latter has a beautiful beach and has always offered protection from all the winds except those of the South (Migjorn). Any of them offers a unique beauty and all the charm of the Mediterranean of Alicante.
The Peñón (Rock) de Ifach, in the region of the Marina Alta, is one of the symbols of the Costa Blanca. It is a massive calcareous rock that rises 332 meters from the sea becoming an authentic natural monument. It is the smallest natural park in the Valencian Community.
