Calpe, paradise for cyclists!
Why Calpe is so loved by cyclists.
Calpe is a medium-sized town on the Costa Blanca in the province of Alicante in Spain. As described earlier in one of our blogs, there is a Mediterranean climate. Consequently, the sun shines very often and the temperatures are fairly average. In other words, in the winter it is not very cold and in the summer it is not extremely hot. That makes Calpe very popular with sports enthusiasts such as walkers and cyclists.
The town of Calpe is located directly on the coast and has only around 25,000 inhabitants. Of these, around 47% do not have Spanish nationality. Every year an incredible number of tourists come to spend their holidays. Not illogical, since there are many beautiful and luxurious hotels. But there is also a sufficient supply for people who want to stay in an apartment or a camper. One of the most tourist attractions is undoubtedly «El Peñon de Ifach». The rock with a height of more than 330 meters that extends far above the sea and can be seen in the wide perimeter. It is part of a small bird sanctuary and is loved by walkers.
