Penon de Ifach

The Peñón de Ifach is the symbol of the Costa Blanca. This limestone rock is 332 meters high and one kilometer long. The rock is connected to the land by a narrow isthmus, the result of a landslide from the nearby Sierra de Oltà. At the top you have beautiful views over the impressive coastline of the Costa Blanca. You can see for miles, as far as Moraira and on clear days you can even see Ibiza from the top of the Ifach.

Mirador de Carabiners.

You first pass ancient Iberian ruins from the 4th century BC before arriving at the visitor center. From the center you walk on a zigzagging tiled path to the tunnel. In the tunnel the stones are often slippery, chains are hung on the side to support you. After the tunnel you first walk through the back of the rock to the viewpoint mirador de Carabiners. You return and then go via a narrow steep hiking trail to the top of the Peñón de Ifach. You return via the same route of the way out.
