Let’s hike to one of the best viewpoints on the Costa Blanca, with views of the Penyal d’Ifac Natural Park – Sierra de Oltà. Mountain goats are included as well!
The Sierra de Oltà, in the Marina Alta region, is a fairly modest elevation if we compare it with the Sierra de Bèrnia, its “older sister”. Despite this, it constitutes an excellent viewpoint from which to look out over the north coast of the province of Alicante. From the Serra Gelada to the Montgó, passing through the Morro de Toix, the Peñón de Ifach and, with a bit of luck, the “nearby” island of Ibiza.
This little gem, located between the municipalities of Benissa and Calpe, has become one of my favorites in the province of Alicante, despite its modest 587-meter maximum height. Its fantastic views and its varied and interesting route will not disappoint you. It is essential to do this hike!
