Nice clean beach with a good wide promenade. A lot of seaweed deposited on the beach after a windy spell was being cleared away quickly.

Along the Promenade, nice area for walking and beautiful beach for the summer. Calpe is very popular destination for the summer.

This beach, unlike others in Calp, is sandy. There had been a storm and council workers were clearing all the heaps of seaweed away and transporting them out of town. The Penyal d'Ifac (or little Gibraltar as we called it) is magnificent and divides the resort. We overlooked the beach and walked along la Partida la Fossa - you get... More

This beach is just in front of mainstreet of Calpe. There is enough parking, but you need to come early. The waters are calm and warm in the month of August. Yes, it can be crowded, but not annoying.

This beach is so clean and the sea so blue and inviting and there is a life guard on duty.we think it is suitable for all and did not feel threatened even the lucky lucky people did not bother you unless you showed an interest in there wares. On the promenade there are c plenty of cafes restaurants shops.

This is a very good beach for all ages, the sea in October is warm and generally calm, take care if swimming out beyond the markers as the undercurrent can be quite strong, but stay within the marker buoys and it is fine. The beach is cleaned each morning making it pristine.

Really enjoy visiting this bustling beach. It is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The life guards do a brilliant job. The shops and restaurants all look well kept and interesting. A perfect beach for families.

This is one of the cleanest beaches I have ever visited - cleaned everyday with crystal clear water and beautiful views as the bay sweeps round. Lovely promenade with a wide selections of shops and restaurants - a really beautiful spot

Fantastic beach as you would expect on the Coastal Blanca and only enhances Calpe as a fantastic place to visit. Costa Blancas best kept secret. At the height of summer there are plenty sunbeds umbrellas and pedalos. There's even a giant inflatable adventure play area out in the sea. There are toilets foot washes and even free showers. The promenade... More
