Calpe town runs from the Old Town on a hilltop overlooking the sea to the Peñon de Ifach that divides the Arenal and Levante beaches with their seafront apartments. Calpe's main street is the Avenida Gabriel Miró (where our office is located) joining the Old Town with Arenal beach.
The new Avenida Europa connects Calpe with the harbour and is a well planned urban area with good quality first and second line apartments arriving at the Plane tree lined streets between the Port and the Salinas salt lake.
An attractive promenade runs the length of the Calpe seafront giving access to the beaches with their many bars and restaurants. At the port a new section follows the base of the Peñon giving fine views across the bay and on your way back you could drop in at the Calpe Yacht Club for a drink or a snack.
