Description 

Costa Blanca in the Alicante province of Southern Spain is home to several excellent limestone crags and towers offering sunny sport climbing and traditional multi pitch adventures. The town of Calpe is the climbing hub of the area and a good place to find cheap accommodations. This area is popular with British tourists and climbers and lacks the charm and character of many other areas of Spain but is still well worth a visit.

Getting There
