With the majestic Penon de Ifach at its heart, the town of Calpe on the Costa Blanca in Spain is a super choice for a beachside wedding location. With something for everyone your guests will not be short of things to entertain before and after your big day.
Once an ancient mediterranean fishing village, Calpe is now a cosmopolitan town combining the charm of its old quarter with modern upscale developments, miles of sandy beaches lined by a promenade of bars and restaurants as well as having a rich history with buildings stretching back to Roman times, all in the majestic shadow of the rock.
Often listed amongst the top 10 places to visit in this part of Spain, the Penon de Ifach is a simply stunning, inescapable feature of this lovely town. This massive limestone outcrop emerging from the sea and linked to the shore by rock debris was once a landmark for mariners and also used as a watchtower. Now a home for thriving birdlife and if you’ve a head for heights and 2 and a half hours to spare you can walk to the top, but it’s not for the faint of heart or the flip flop wearers in your party!
Away from its beaches and promenades the Roman site Baños de la Reina, with rock-cut sea pools is worth exploring along with the ruins of Pobla de Ifac, a medieval walled village. For lovers of architecture La Muralla Roja is an iconic postmodern castle-like building by modern Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill. La Muralla Roja ( lit. 'the Red Wall') is an apartment complex in the Manzanera area of the town.
It's location almost equidistant between the cities of Alicante in the south and Valencia in the North which both benefit from excellent international airports makes Calpe a convenient and accessible location for guests arriving from far and wide for your wedding celebrations.
It’s more resort-type nature means that Calpe has many options for both wedding venues and accommodation for your guests. With high-end beach front hotels to restaurants of almost every cuisine, boutique hotels and private villas to front line apartments the choice for planning a wedding is excellent. What’s more it's backed up by a strong network of wedding suppliers who are both high quality and professional in this area of the Valencian community. From Hairdressers to wedding cars, photographers to florists and ceremony celebrants to entertainment.
Planning your dream wedding in Calpe is a good choice and what a backdrop the Penon de Ifach and the blue Mediterranean waters will make in your photographs!
