Set in the South-East of Spain, between Valencia and Alicante, Costa Blanca features a wealth of countless excellent routes, both in the inland area and by the seashore. The rocks offer a splendid view of the neighbourhood towns; however, the loveliest sight of all is the panorama of the sunset as it tints the sky and the mountain silhouettes.
As for climbing Calp's Peñón de Ifach (or Penyal d'Ifac in Valencian), the tallest limestone outcrop in the Mediterranean, looming above the swelling sea, it is an unforgettable challenge.
