The focus of the Sport Climbing Holiday


The Rock & Sun Sports Climbing holiday is the most popular of our climbing holidays and courses abroad. It is focused on all participants climbing as many good quality, single pitch rock climbs during the week as possible.


Our dedicated instructors are the best in the business and will make sure that your guiding is not only first class, but that your choice of venues are perfect for the sports climbing grade you are currently at.


If you want to, your guide will work with you on personal development, including training for lead climbing and coaching on personal climbing techniques and styles during the Sport Climbing Holiday. However, this is not a must. We realise you are on your well-deserved holiday, so if you prefer to climb on toprope, then that is absolutely fine.


All in all, we will do our best to provide the perfect environment for you to increase confidence and improve technique, to help take your climbing to a new level in a fun and sociable environment.

Our Most Popular Sport Climbing Destination is the Costa Blanca. Why?


The Costa Blanca, with its dramatic blue seas, white beaches and terraced fruit groves set against panoramic mountains, is home to Spain's most exciting rock climbing.


This is Spain's most varied and developed climbing location, providing single and multi-pitch sport climbs, traditional routes, sea cliffs and mountain crags.

Add low cost flights, the mildest winter climate in Europe, and the excellent facilities at our hand-picked locations... and you'll understand why the Costa Blanca has become our clients' favoured European climbing destination.


To get an idea of what a climbing holiday with Rock & Sun in the Costa Blanca is like, watch our video here: Rock & Sun Sport Climbing Holiday Costa Blanca.


Climbing in the Costa Blanca

Limestone sea cliffs are the backdrop to what is undoubtedly Europe's richest variety of magnificent climbing ventures. The area offers a wealth of climbing for all grades and styles.


Explore Calpe, where the Penon de Ifach (the Penion) soars majestically up from the sea; relish the quality of clean, fresh limestone climbing, where the rock's ripples and textures enable great reach of positions, encouraging you to flow through your climbs.

Weather & Climate in the Costa Blanca

With an average of 300 days sunshine each year, this is probably the best rock climbing destination in Europe.


Accommodation in the Costa Blanca

You will be staying in a beautiful, fully equipped and spacious villa with swimming pool just a five minute walk from the typical Spanish village Parcent, in the Xalon Valley. The Xalon Valley is just inland from Benissa and the villa is about 30 minutes from the town and coast of Calpe. The Xalon valley is famous for its high quality wines - you will be surrounded by vineyards, as well as olive trees, orange groves and almond groves. Parcent has a range of bars and restaurants (among which the best Paella restaurant in the area!), a minimarket, bakery and pharmacy, all within walking distance of the villa.


The modern villa has a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a beautiful garden with different seating areas and an outside BBQ. Its fully fitted kitchen, lounge and dining area have the character of an original Spanish farmhouse. There is WiFi in the villa. For photos, click on the Accommodation tab above.
