The vast majority of us who live in the Mediterranean know what the Peñón de Ifach is and where it is, but surely there are many details about the Natural Park that you didn’t know. Here we leave you the 5 curiosities that you don’t know about the Peñón de Ifach.
5 curiosities that you didn’t know about the Peñón de Ifach
The Peñón de Ifach was an island
Many years ago, the Peñón de Ifach was separated from the Peninsula, as it was a small island / islet. In Roman times it had already been joined by a small tongue of land, although if you look at it, currently the union between them is very small and, in fact, it is a very flooded area although at the moment it is full of buildings.
Tourist Symbol of the Costa Blanca
Its 332 meters high that rise from the Mediterranean Sea, has made this Natural Monument one of the most important on the Costa Blanca. If you look at the Peñón, it appears in almost all the tourism publications of the province of Alicante since it can be seen from many places in the province.
It is the smallest Natural Park in the Valencian Community
With about 50 hectares of extension and 1 km in length, it is the smallest Natural Park in the Valencian Community and it is also one of the smallest in Europe. However, given its uniqueness, it is one of the most visited, with more than 100,000 registered visits per year.
The large rocks that have been falling from the Rock to the sea have formed a steep bottom full of arches and tunnels like a labyrinth. That is why it is one of the favorite places for divers to do their dives. If you like snorkeling more, you can also enjoy the marine life in Cala Racó, in the southern part of the Peñón.
El Peñón has more than 35 climbing routes, and climbing right from the sea has to be an impressive experience.

Do you know the Valencia airport? We tell you the history of the Valencia – Manises airport and how it has grown over time.
History of Valencia Airport
Valencia airport is located eight kilometers west of the capital, in the municipality of Manises.
In March 1933 the airport was inaugurated and customs declared in September 1934. The first regular flight was made on September 1, 1934 with the inauguration of the Madrid-Valencia line.
Construction of the first track began in the summer of 1946, using a metallic mesh covered with a layer of limestone on a rammed stone base. In 1948 the construction work of a small parking platform was carried out.
In 1983, the new passenger terminal was inaugurated, replacing the one that was built. The greatest innovation of the new building is the use of solar energy through solar panels.
In March 2007, the first expansion of the airport came into operation, including a new building for regional aviation, the construction of a private aviation building and a vehicle parking building, as well as the expansion of the flight track and parking platforms.
In July 2012, the second expansion of the airport was inaugurated, consisting of the construction of another building with twenty more check-in counters and a new baggage claim hall and the construction of a new vehicle parking building, among other works.
Valencia airport main destinations
Traffic is mostly international, with Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom and France being the countries that contribute the highest number of passengers. The three national destinations with the most passengers are Palma de Mallorca, Madrid and Ibiza.
Type of flights
In addition to commercial aviation, with operations of many airlines, general aviation also has a high level of activity at the airport with the presence of private aviation companies, public bodies and other companies related to aerial work.

Xàbia or Jávea is a coastal town in the comarca of Marina Alta, in the province of Alicante, Spain, by the Mediterranean Sea.
The town of Jávea is situated on the back side of the Montgó, in a wide bay sheltered between two rocky headlands. The town has become a very popular small seaside resort and market town.
Xàbia has a mild climate during the entire year. Thanks to the Montgó mountain barrier, the town is protected from the winter cold fronts and benefits from the sea winds and easterly breezes which provide relief from the summer heat.
Xàbia’s climate is considered as the World’s second best microclimate with an average annual temperature of 18 ºC.
In addition, it is located in the north of the province of Alicante, on the easternmost point of the Mediterranean coast. The island of Ibiza lies some 90 kilometres (56 mi) to the east, and it can be seen on clear days.
Tourism and sport activities in Jávea
The coastline of Xàbia features four capes: Cabo de San Antonio, Cap de la Nau (the largest), Cap Negre and Cap Martí.
The Montgó Massif, which shelters Xàbia, is the highest summit of the region standing at a height of over 750m. The “Parque Natural del Montgó” was declared in 1987, stretching across the area of La Plana to the cape of Sant Antoni.
Apart from to the numerous Nautical Sports which you may carry out in Xàbia, there are other options to enjoy active tourism, such as hiking through its rich natural landscapes and other sports such as tourist bicycle routes, mountain climbing, horse riding, etc.
