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
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.
