Travel Blogs from Calpe
I think that at least ten or a dozen of times we spent a part of our summer holidays in this old village. It was once perched in the top of a hill, but today is a very town which extends itself up to the famous Peņon de Ifach and also it has sorrounded an old saltwork, nowadays unaffected. Well, before to following, I have to clarifiy that never, …
This weekend, ISA took us to Calpe. A city tourists go to for the beach. The beach in Calpe is a lot more clear and blue, very pretty. Although I did see dirty look cloth floating around which freaked me out, lol. But, hey, all beaches are generally a tad dirty at the least. I think the beach in Calpe is prettier than in Valencia. Before we got to …
... are no better! Still, at least there are less Brits in Javea than Australians in Bali. We got up early this morning in time for last minute checks and strapping Jess' pack to the bike, then it was a 20 minute ride over the mountain between Javia and Denia where Jess was catching a bus to Valencia and then on to Barcelona. We arrived with plenty of time to spare, waited it out, everything was pretty much ready to go, the bus was due to leave in 5 ...
... it was next to Barclays Bank, which Google Maps said was exactly where it wasn't. I went on their website and tried to find the specific address, but even that failed. I never did find it, but I stumbled across some other dry cleaning service. To dry clean my suit was going to cost 10 Euro, and that all seemed fine - until I asked when I could pick it up. Friday apparently. Well there was no way I was waiting that long for dry cleaning, so I explained that I ...
... eating both lunch and dinner in Valencia. We went for a walk and found a nice bakery where we ate many, many pastries, then found our way to these amazing castle-esque gates, tiny laneways with old buildings on either side and cobble stone streets. Eventually we came upon the tourist market, surrounded by cafes, and we decided to stop at a chocolate shop for tea and churros.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Bahia Calpe
Four times we stayed in this hotel, since it was inaugurated in 2004. Our election was always determined by its excellent ubication, which let us to reach it easily from the road and leave the car within its spacious parking. The old town of Calpe lies very near, and Arenal beach is just in front. The better of the common halls is the restaurant, which has a great picture window looking to the sea. However, the swimming pool is small and somewhat uncomfortable (1st floor). The rooms (at least those than look to sea) are not very greats and the TV is old (not flat screen) and small. There was not available internet hall, although very near to the hotel it had an internet cafe very crowded. Sumarizing: A place quiet and recommendable, but at least one star may be discussed.
