ROCK OF IFACH
The rock known as “Peñón de Ifach”, symbol of the Costa Blanca, is a calcareous rock rising from the sea to a height of 332 m and one kilometre long, making a total of 50.000 m2 of rock. Joined to the land by a narrow isthmus, it is the result of a landslide from nearby Sierra de Oltà, making it one of the most unusual and beautiful geographical features, not only within the Valencian community but also on the entire Mediterranean coast.
On both sides of the Ifach stretch fine sandy beaches with their transparent waters. These are Levante or La Fossa to the north and Cantal Roig and Arenal- Bol to the south, which, together with the Morro de Toix, form the bay of Calpe.
At the foot of the rock is the Royal Nautical Club and fishing port where the fleet of fishing trawlers unload their precious catch each day.
It is also a meeting point for climbers and scuba divers from all over the world, who test its resistance over and over again, challenging nature by climbing its face and exploring its deep waters.
