Gibraltar Airport Codes
A British colony on the southern tip of
Spain, Gibraltar is an intriguing mix of Spanish, English,
Moorish and Maltese heritage. Sun drenched for at least
three quarters of the year, and a tax-free zone for many
goods, it’s a popular spot for cruise ships and tourists,
and well worth a visit.
Must see attractions: The first
stop for any visitor to Gibraltar is the Rock of Gibraltar
to say hello to the barbary apes and photograph the stunning
views. For the best possible rock experience, travel to the
top via hire car or the cable car, visit the caves,
and then walk all the way down. At the bottom, wander
through the lovely botanic gardens and maybe take in a movie
at the nearby cinema. For an unusual experience, but one of
the most memorable, head towards the airport to watch a
plane take off or land.
Casemates Square is a hub of activity
for food, drink and conversation, with a multitude of bars
and restaurants open day and night. Make sure you visit the
tiny glassblowing museum on the square, and head up the
steps on either end of the parade to check out the local
craft shops. Definitely take advantage of some shopping
opportunities in Gibraltar because cigarettes, alcohol and
top of the range toiletries and perfumes are tax-free. If
you want to try local food, ask for the breakfast calentita
and the pastry-free spinach pie.
Visit the mosque at Europa Point – the
far end of Gibraltar,
overlooking Africa – and if you want to go to a beach, try
heading to the old-fashioned but lovely Caletta hotel.
Alternatively, head to the swim and sunbathing complex of
Camp Bay in the South West – particularly good for families
– or walk over the border onto Spanish soil and head right,
following the road until you come to a long stretch of sandy
beach, popular with locals as well as tourists. For
after-hours entertainment, try the new marina area, or head
over the border to sample some excellent Argentinian steak
and Spanish tapas.
