Gibraltar's Top 7 Places to Visit

At the mouth of the Mediterranean sits Gibraltar's rocky stretch of natural splendor. With a fascinating political history, this peninsula boasts a diverse architectural legacy and continues to be a popular stop for cruise ships touring the Spanish coasts.

  • Rock of Gibraltar

    This epic limestone promontory provides delights from both above and below. Explore the Great Siege Tunnels or monkey around in the Apes' Den with the famous Barbary macaques.

  • St Michael's Cave

    2. St Michael's Cave

    Once believed to be bottomless, this rocky marvel is shrouded in mystery and teeming with history. The Cathedral Cave is now a performance space, so plan ahead to catch a show.

  • Gibraltar Botanic Gardens (Alameda Wildlife Park)

    East of the city lies this peaceful fishing village. Escape the busy city center for its sandy shore - one of Gibraltar's best beaches - and row of wonderful seafood restaurants.

  • Europa Point

    As Gibraltar's southernmost point, on a clear day you can see the coast of Africa from its rocky peak. Walk along to the iconic Trinity Lighthouse and Shrine of Our Lady of Europe.

  • Moorish Castle

    6. Moorish Castle

    Since the 11th century, the great square tower of Gibraltar's castle has sat high on its hillside. Today the ruins of the Tower of Homage and Gate House are well worth a visit.

    A beautiful blend of classic Islamic and Byzantine architecture, the mosque sits proudly on Europa Point. Explore the exquisite interior, just remember to respect the dress code.

Planning Your Visit

  • How many days should you stay for?

    A long weekend in Gibraltar is more than enough time to visit its must-see sights, but to make the most of its best beaches and beautiful surroundings make it a week. With a Spanish border, it's easy to hire a car and visit Cadiz or Seville within a couple of hours.

  • Where should you stay?

    Gibraltar has plenty of quaint seaside hotels to pick from, many only a stone's throw from the city's main attractions. Though often on the pricier side, booking well in advance can save you some pretty pennies. If you're planning a Spanish adventure, the nearby cities of La Linea or Tarifa serve as great jumping-off locations.

We were booked on a 1230 trip but found out only the night before that our cruise ship was to leave at 1330. We worked out that there was a 1000 trip (part of the cruise itinerary) so we just turned up and the company were very good in letting us change this at 0959 and join the one leaving 1 minute later. The boat went straight to the area where the dolphins were and the staff were constantly talking/giving information about the dolphins - we saw probably a hundred or more in the short time. Really enjoyed the trip and well worth every penny.

Loved everything about this day - what a great experience! Petra is a wonderful guide, full of energy and made sure we are all sharp on time and follow the agenda :)))) passport control was so much fun if you are not from EU but pleasantly fast comparing to normal UK boarders. Lots of beautiful pictures and memories - must do!

Great trip, handled very well by the company. On time and well organized. No negatives at all. The little town of Gibraltar is not quite as picturesque as I'd hoped, and there really isn't time for a leisurely lunch and stroll, but the guides were great.

The crew were very pleasant and knowledgeable. We saw lots of dolphins and learned about them and the local geography. Thank you for a most enjoyable morning.

It was an amazing trip , I would highly recommend it.
