The unspoiled cove of El Penyal offers the chance to spend a peaceful day by the sea, along with a range of watersports in an almost unique setting.
This small, natural cove measuring some 100 metres in length is located at the foot of the north face of the striking Peñón de Ifach, in the borough of Calpe.
The clarity of the water and the richness of the seabed, teeming with the typical local marine species, make it a suitable destination for diving, boating trips, hiking or fishing.
It is reached along a narrow path running from the northern end of the Ifach Headland itself. As the cove is a little isolated it is relatively uncrowded, offering an excellent chance to spend the day in an unrivalled setting, surrounded by nature and the Mediterranean Sea.
