The Rock of Ifac Nature Park

The Rock of Ifac Nature Park

Joined to land via a narrow isthmus, the limestone Rock of Ifac (Penyal d'Ifac) rises 332m over the sea. At its feet lies the town of Calpe, with its fishing port, tourist area and old town centre. Thriving on the rocky cliff faces of the nature park are a number of curious plant varieties, including endemic cliff plants, dwarf palms and the Phoenician juniper. Over 80 species of birds use this rock either for nesting or migrational stopovers. The views over the coast are marvellous from the top of this rock. It can be climbed using the Nature Park trail, and mountaineers have various cliff faces available for use. Next to the rock are the Calpe Salinas, or salt flats, also making for an interesting visit. The Penyal d'Ifac Nature Room (Aula de Naturaleza) provides further information on the park (tel. 96 597 2015).
